The chosen car had plate number GKW 111. It differed from the regular models in that it featured individual seats and a smaller windshield, and had no bumper.
Tom Wisdom – who had had some success driving a Javelin – and Tommy Wise were the chosen drivers. In reference to their last names, this specific Jupiter was called Sagacious II, as the inscription on its bonnet read.
Louis Rosier, former La Résistance fighter, was the absolute winner, driving his Talbot almost on his own. Against all odds, the Jupiter was the winner in the 1101-1500 cm3 class, setting a new record of 220 laps in the said class, and coming in sixteenth in the general classification. This unexpected success brought international renown to the Jupiter, and it proved very useful for its launch campaign.
