Rene Chaix's car was front engined and used a Simca (Fiat) engine. It was derived from Rene's 500cc sports car which had been successful in hill climbs but, as a single-seater, was too large and limited by a lack of power at only 30 hp.

Rene  managed a fifth at Bois de la Cambre, Brussels on 22nd May 1949, behind four British drivers but that is the only result we have.

If anyone has any more details of this car, please get in touch.
