Talbot Lago T28C

This is a car I photographed in the paddock at the Coys International Historic Festival meeting at Silverstone in July 1999.
It's the 1948 Talbot Lago T26C of François d'Huart which took part in the Maserati UK Race for Pre-1961 Grand Prix Cars. It's finished in the yellow racing colours of Belgium and according to the programme of the event it's the car with which Louis Rosier took fourth place in the 1948 British Grand Prix at Silverstone, although  Louis Rosier was actually third in that race and in fourth place was the Talbot Lago T26C of Philippe Étancelin. On 27 September 2015 I showed a photograph of this car in the pit lane at the Coys International Historic Festival meeting at Silverstone in 1994. This site gives a brief history of all the Talbot Lago T26C cars.
