A small but high-qual­ity en­try for this shot of a 1949 Le Mans class-win­ner – which is, of course, the Cze­choslo­vakian Aero Mi­nor Sport 750. Karl Lud­vigsen, Geert Wat­teeuw, Jan Benink and Jeremy Ris­don were all able to iden­tify the front-wheeldrive racer, which fin­ished 15th over­all that year and placed sec­ond for the In­dex of Per­for­mance. Our win­ner this month is David Alder­son, who was also able to tell us that the car’s 1950 crew – Gat­sonides and Hoogeveen – nick­named their tiny twostroke steed ‘Smoky Jasper’!
