1923 French GP - Winner - No.12 Henry Seagrave
After being outclassed firstly by the Duesenberg's in 1921 and then the Fiat
804’s
in 1922 Sunbeam managed to persuade Fiat Designer Vincenzo
Bertarione to design them their cars for the 1923 season. Not surprisingly
the new Sunbeams were very like the Fiat 804’s earning them the nickname
the ‘Green Fiats’.

So the scene was set for one of Sunbeam’s greatest sporting achievements
winning 1923 French Grand Prix at Tours with their cars finishing 1st, 2nd
and 4th. Henry Segrave came in first, at an average speed of 75.3m.p.h.
Albert Divo came in second and Lee Guinness finished in fourth place.

This was the first win for a British car in this Grand Prix. In October, Albert
Divo went on to win the Spanish Grand Prix at the Autodrome Nacional in a
'Green Fiat' too.
