Yesterday : André „SEGOLEN“ / LE MARECHAL - Tour de France Automobile 1970


The BSH is a berlinette designed by François Benais and Max Saint Hilaire who combine their initials to name it. Built on a tubular chassis, this sports car was offered as a kit. Only two copies would have been sold fully assembled by the "factory". Its line is inspired by the prototypes of the 60s. It weighs a total of 600 kg and benefits from a very healthy behavior, which makes it competitive against Alpines of the same weight. Its mechanics are borrowed from the Renault 8 Gordini, R12 or R16. Presented in 1970, it would have been produced only in 200 copies. There are only about ten rolling cars left in the world in their original configuration, including 2 in France.

In 1970 Segolen took part in the Tour de France Automobile at the wheel of a BSH. He gave up on engine overheating, a consequence of a fan mounted upside down. The car is then resold and will pass from hand to hand before ending up in a private collection. In 1971, the Breton driver found the wheel of a BSH, to participate in the Grand National, a parallel event to the Tour de France. In 2019, he bought one of the two personal BSH of François Benais having raced in his time in the hands of Philippe Gustiaux. After an in-depth overhaul, he presented it this year at the Alsace Rallye Festival in the livery of his 1970 Tour de France Automobile car.
