Wagner and Vivet drove the winning No. 10 Darracq car at the Vanderbilt Cup in 1906. The Vanderbilt Cup race was run at Long Island, New York on the 6th October, 1906.
The victorious Darracq averaged 62.7 mph over the 297.1-mile race.
Most streets where no more than sand and gravel.
This is the reason why Louis Wagner (driver) and Louis Vivet (Mechanic) wore these leather masks, to protect their faces from flying stones and dirt.
