1921 French GP - 2nd - No.1 Ralph DePalma
For the new 3 litre formula of 1921 Ernest Ballot had the great designer
Ernest Henry of Peugeot fame create him a team of cars.

Henry designed a 3 litre straight eight engine, a handsome streamlined 2-
seater body was used, with provision for a spare wheel to be accommodated
longitudinally in the hinged tail.

Ballot’s first Grand Prix entry at the prestigious French GP at Le mans in 1921
would see a shock win for the Americans with their
Duesenberg 183 and the 3
Litre Ballot coming in 2nd at the hands of Ralph DePalma. Depalma would
also take his Ballot to the Indy 500 and come 12th.

However at the Italian Grand Prix of 1921, although the Fiats were taster, the
3-litre Ballots were more reliable, taking a 1-2 with Jules Goux followed home
by Jean Chassagne. Finally, at Indianapolis in 1922 the 3-litre rule stayed in
force and a Ballot driven by Eddie Hearne finished 3rd.
