HISTORY

First Owner 02-07-1927 Marco Andriesse, Amsterdam, bought straight from the factory. Raced by Helle Nice in the thirties. She tried to break the record at Montlhery on Dec 18, 1929, when she set a lap time of 197.708 km/h but did not break the record (1). Sold to Jack Leon Burton. Now in The USA . Converted from 35 C to 35 B specification by Crostwaite and Gardiner. Recently what appears to be the original tail has rejoined the car(2). Participated in various American events as can be seen on the pictures(3). After having been "Pebble beached" by the previous owner Brian Brunkhurst successfully restored the original looks of the car and he first raced it in Monterey 2003.

Hellé Nice to R.I.P.

Artwork by Larry Crane

Foundation Will Position Grave Marker during September 4th Ceremony in Ste Mesme

The Hellé Nice Foundation has announced a ceremony to be held in Ste Mesme, France on September 4, 2010 honoring French female racecar driver Hellé Nice. “For 26 years, Nice has rested in an unmarked grave and our foundation’s first project has been to raise funds and place a marker on her grave”, said Sheryl Greene. A Service of Commemoration will be held at the Ste Mesme church and in the adjoining cemetery where the marker will be placed. Speakers will include Miranda Seymour, author of “The Bugatti Queen”, essayist, lecturer and author of the Hellé Nice biography; VeloceToday correspondent and motorsports historian Dr. Patricia Lee Yongue and Sheryl Greene, originator and founder of the HelléNice Foundation.

Additional ceremony guests include: Annie Soisbault, Triumph works driver famous for her performances in races and rallies and Jean-Pierre Beltoise, who restored hope to French motor sport and won the 1972 Monaco Grand Prix. Club Bugatti France will bring several examples of Bugattis similar to the ones Nice drove on the track. Those attending are invited to bring their own classic and vintage cars along with flowers to place on the grave. “We invite lovers and devotees of the car in general, and of motor sport in particular, to join us in restoring the memory of one of automobile history’s great women racers”, said Greene. The ceremony begins at the church in Ste-Mesme located at Chemin de l'Eglise, 78739 Sainte-Mesme, France, on September 04, 2010 at 11:00AM (Paris time)

Here is the first gallery on this tribute to Ms Hellé-Nice. Three Bugatti were present, too little for my taste...

Scuderia CC: Thanks for your report and pictures !

For everybody who has not read Miranda Seymour's Book on Hellé Nice: get it and read it- it's worth it !

By the way: even if that T44 is a replica: I like the unconventional choice of colour
