A young Belgian, Paul Demesse raced a Bugatti T37A and a BMW 328 in post WW II years, but in 1950 he built a classical Formula 3 racer with the BMW flat-twin engine at the front. This car was well built and looked very neat (and similar to Lehder's LTE-Juwel). Demesse unfortunately crashed fatally during the Liège-Rome-Liège in September 1951. His F3 car did not get any development and was sold to Robert Dansart from Brussels, who raced it during 1952.
