1949 Talbot-Lago T-26C Racing Monoplace Formula One

1949 Talbot-Lago T-26C Racing Monoplace Formula One.

The 4.5-litre, six-cylinder Talbot-Lago T26 was eligible for F1 competition post-war, and many examples, both factory and private, appeared in the first two years of the F1 World Championship, 1950 and 1951. Talbots came fourth and fifth in the inaugural World Championship race, the 1950 British Grand Prix, piloted by Yves Giraud-Cabantous and Louis Rosier respectively. The move to two-litre F2 regulations for 1952 effectively ended Talbot’s F1 spell as a manufacturer.
