    • Remain 3 off 550 from which I have identified 2 off
      car race number 102 driven by the French pilot Jacques Houdusse
      First time I qee this name
      I did sole search and found a team Jacques and Pierre Houdusse who finish 26th on a Simca Aronde at the 1956 Tour Auto
      Nothing else
      I think Jacques had rented this car for the race as it wear a German plate from Stuttgart

                              Obviously large differences between the 2 cars
                              Sepp Greger car looks older (behive lights + 6 louvers instead of 5 on HvH car)
                              HvH registration Stuttgart
                              Sepp Greger ?
