a salute to Tony Lago

Here is the underdog of European Grand Prix racing. Thus, the supporters of the marque TALBOT find every victory doubly sweet and cause for special rejoicing. To the French, a TALBOT success is very nearly reason enough for national rejoicing, for not only is TALBOT virtually the only car carrying the beloved "bleu" of France these days, but such a victory has almost certainly been achieved with the great and adored Louis Chiron at the wheel. When a victory over Maserati or Ferrari has been won, credits goes equally to the stout of the mount and the driver.
Credit, too, must go to the man behind "Automobile Talbot" who has used the slender resources of his small organization to carry, without State assistance of any kind, the colors of France in International racing. To Monsieur "Tony" Lago, therefore, a special cheer from all those who might feel that some of the huge profit of our own motor manufacturers might well be expended in similar support of American racing teams.
(ROAD and TRACK. April, 1950)
