With reference to Mr. Pigott’s letter regarding the type 158 Alfa-Romeos.
He is perfectly correct when he says that they took part in the Circuit de St Cloud on June 9th 1946, this being their first postwar appearance. Two cars were entered and were driven by Wimille and Farina. I cannot explain how I came to overlook this event for I took part in it and recall the consternation when both cars were forced to withdraw leaving Sommer to win easily on his Maserati.
