Three French Racing Machines to Compete at Milwaukee.
The list of entries for the Vanderbilt Cup and Grand Prize races to be held at Milwaukee Sept. 17-21 was increased yesterday by the entry of three Peugeot cars entered by the Peugeot Company, of Audincourt, France. Georges Boillot, who won the French Grand Prix, driving a Peugeot, has been nominated to pilot one of the machines, but the drivers of the other two cars have not yet been selected, so far as Bart J. Ruddle, manager of the Milwaukee races, knows. The machines are entered in both the Vanderbilt and Grand Prize contests.
Paul Lacroix, whose company represents the Peugeot interests in this country, said yesterday that Boillot and the three machines, with a corps of mechanicians, are now heading for America, and if they get here in time two of the cars will be entered in the Elgin road race which is to be held Aug. 31. It has been known for some time that R. J. Collier has been negotiating through his agents with the Peugeot people to import at least one machine for the Elgin meet. In the event that the cars are entered it is likely that E. A. Hearne will be the team mate of Boillot at Elgin.
