Yes, Pierre Goutte I think, but the historian's lot is not helped by his being shown as A Goutte in the results! He shared the Salmson in the race with Lionel de Marnier.

This photo clearly shows why the Thomas Special was christened the 'Flat-iron' racer. It is not true, however, that they were of such low build that they would run upside down, as the drivers head would be in way! Aren't F1 cars supposed to be able to run upside down? Nothings new!
