” VIVE LE SPORT ! ” ORIGINAL CEREMONY AT THE OPENING OF A NEW GARAGE IN PARIS.
FOR many years it has been the custom in Paris to celebrate the opening of new multi-floor garages with a hill-climb up the ramp connect
ing the various stories. Last month this ceremony was carried out at a new garage in the Rue de la Tombe-Issoire, Paris, the ” hill ” being about 300 yards long and finishing on the fifth floor.
Many well known racing motorists took part, Robert Benoist, Philippe Etancelin, Druck, Pierre Felix, Senechal, Monneret, Vallon, etc. The garage is being managed by Armand Girod, who has raced Donnet cars for some time, and partnered Felix last year in the French G.P. at Rheims. Incidentally, Girod has bought up the racing stock of the
Salmson concern, and hopes to do great things next season with two
specially built cars of his own construction.
