The #10 Darracq driven by Louis Wagner

Louis Wagner (left) and riding mechanician Louis Vivet prepared to begin the race in the French 100-hp #10 Darracq. The Motor Way called the car “the peculiar wire wheeled, little Darracq.” Behind Wagner was the gray Italian #12 Itala driven by Alessandro Cagno. Foxhall Keene’s #11 Mercedes was absent as it had failed to start due to cracked cylinders discovered shortly before practice began.
