Profile

A former bicycle racer, Henri Loveau came to motorsport as a FIAT test driver before serving in Africa during World War II. He competed in two grand prix in a Talbot Largo but failed to finish both. He enjoyed more success at the Le Mans 24 Hours and finished second in the 1949 race. He retired after a crash in 1951 and set up a car dealership using his contacts in the motoring world. He sold Maseratis and Delages, two teams he used to drive for, and in later life expanded into the car and truck rental business.
