The Mystery Racer of Baix Penedes. <br>UPDATE: Price On Application.. :-)



The first edition of the Catalan Cup was held the 25 May 1908 at the Baix Penedés circuit ( later replaced by the ill-famed circuit of Sitges- Terramar; read also at GrandPrix.com). In this race participated a "POA" car bearing nº5, driven by P.Romeu(DNF). Can anyone of the readers supply info about this secluded manufacturer? I found the info in diverse local publications of the period.
(a question from Manel Baró; below his translation into Castillian and Catalan which he added upon our request) \n This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

UPDATE by Chris Draper who suspects this to be the first car (re)seller not to publish prices for his cars - a custom now common in the old car World. Why??"

In official Spanish (Castilian): "Agradeceré información sobre un vehiculo marca "POA" conducido por P. Romeu que participó con el nº 5 en la 1ª Copa de Catalunya" celebrada en el circuito del Baix Penedès, Mayo de 1908"

And now in Catalan, natural and official tongue, along with the Castilian, in Catalonia, Balearic Islands and Valencia territories: "Agraïrè dades d'un vehicle marca "POA" conduït per en Pere Romeu que amb el nº 5, va còrrer la 1ª Copa Catalunya cel.lebrada al Baix Penedès el mes de maig de 1908".
