Coupe des Voiturettes - Jules Goux

The original source of this photo reports that it came from an event called the "Coupe des Voiturettes" held in Boulogne, France in 1910. The driver is reported to be Jules Goux (Lion-Peugeot) who is credited with finishing second in the event.  Goux, of course, won the 1913 Indianapolis 500. If anyone reading this believes they have more or better information about this race, I'd love to hear from you.
The Lion-Peugeot company is interesting in that it was separate from the Peugeot company. The two companies were derivatives of a falling out of cousins Eugene and Armand Peugeot in the 1880s. Armand wanted to start an automobile business and Eugene thought that it was an costly endeavor with too much risk. After the passing of Eugene in 1905 his sons entered the auto business, marketing under the brand Lion-Peugeot. The two factions combined in 1910 with Robert Peugeot - one of Eugene's sons - taking the helm. Armand passed away a few years later, but had no sons to inherit a role in the business.
Voiturette is a term that was first applied to relatively small automobiles in the 1890s.
