1 (1951)

Garage owner, an ex-Hotchkiss employee. Although he started racing in the 1920's, appearing in a few rallies, but his most frequent and successful period of racing was from the late '40's onwards once his garage business was properly established. After a few decent results, Grignard retired in 1955 to run his garage, but in 1959 bought up all the liquidated stock from his old team Talbot, and later supplied cars and parts. Arguably his most notable win was in 1950 in a non-championship Formula 1 race at Montlhery - the Paris Grand Prix.
