Stupid answer!

It's:

What: Salmson VAL
Who: Robert Benoist
When: 16 September 1922 - Le Mans (IV Grand Prix de l'U.M.F. Cyclecars)


Benoist became an agent for SOE in WWII along with fellow GP drivers Jean-Pierre Wimille and William-Grover Williams. He was captured in Paris in June 1944 and shot by the Nazis at Buchenwald on 11 September 1944.

Well done!

The X on the radiator grille is the key to identification.

Winning car - at an average speed of 98.59 kph!

Thought I had you foxed for a while....

You certainly did, for a while. I'd forgotten about cyclecar and voiturette racing at LM.
