1908 New York to Paris great race entry, the Protos finally shows up online to show me wth that car was

Found on http://www.autopuzzles.com/
Original photos of this Protos at the start of the race: http://justacarguy.blogspot.com/2011/03/new-york-to-paris-race-of-1908-great.html

the other entries were the Züst representing Italy, three cars (De Dion-Bouton, Motobloc, and Sizaire-Naudin) representing France, and Thomas Flyer competing for the United States

If the rally race cars of the Paris to Peking, and the New York to Paris races interest you too, here are the Spyker http://justacarguy.blogspot.com/2011/07/1907-spyker-charles-godard-and-jean-du.html

Update Aug 16th: I just found the OldMotor.com has posted a photo taken during the race while they came through Ogden Utah: http://theoldmotor.com/?p=9927
read about the passenger, he was hired by each of the great race entrants to guide them from Ogden Utah to Nevada, as he had been a surveyor for the railway
