66. Bugatti type 35



As a teenager, Louis Chiron fell in love with cars and racing. He learned to drive at a young age and joined the Grand Prix circuit after World War I where he had requisitioned from the artillery section to serve as a chauffeur. Competing in France, in 1926 he won his first local race, taking the Grand Prix de Comminges at Saint Gardens near the city of Toulouse. From there, Chiron went on to drive a Bugatti and an Alfa Romeo P3 to important wins in the Marseille Grand Prix, the circuit of Masanyk, and the Spanish Grand Prix. In addition, he teamed up with champion marathon driver Luigi Chinetti to win the 1933 Spa 24 endurance race in Belgium. He also drove a Delage to 7th place in the 1929 Indianapolis 500. He won the 1931 Monaco Grand Prix and as of 2012 he is the only  Monaco born driver to have done so.

Louis Chiron’s career came to an end with his retirement in 1938 and autoracing itself a year later with the outbreak of World War II. When racing resumed after the War, Chiron made a comeback and drove a Talbot-Lago to victory in two French Grand Prix races.
