In the mid-1930s the Talbot firm was acquired and reorganized by Anthony Lago, who since then used the name Talbot-Lago to produce his own street cars. As a fan of motor racing, Anthony thought the Grand Prix was the best publicity and he made a running car based on the 6-cylinder engine of his saloon, but increased to 4.5 liters. Its new engine was the base of the Talbot Lake T26. The Monaco GP of 1948 was his debut.
Less powerful and sophisticated than the Alfa Romeo, Ferrari and Maserati, the French cars completed the race without stopping to refuel or change tires. Nino Farina took the victory for Maserati, with Louis Chiron in his T26 hot on his heels. Thanks to their reliability, the T26 won important Grand Prix victories during 1948 and 1949. In 1950, the Talbot Lago was the only French car present in the first race of the new F1 World Championship: the GP of England, with 5 cars in the exit.
Something similar happened in the other GP of the season, being almost the only opponent to the Italian red cars. But in 1951 Talbot did not experience the same success ... Rosier did the best job, repeating a third in Switzerland and Belgium. Finally in 1952, without evolving and widely overtaken by the competition, no one ran the championship with Talbot Lago.In 1956 and 1957 participated in the 24 Hours of Le Mans, disappearing Talbot Lake competitions definitely.
