    Those lamps on the Chardonnet TDF car?
    I think they might be Vespa:

    Right Chris!
    It looks like Vespa one not as usual Carello!
    The same were on Marlboro Giro car...Don't know why they used them...maybe more powerfull light than other one, without lamp pod they needed them on night stages and late arrivals on tracks?!

    Yes Frederic, it seems to be a thing with the track event cars? Normal headlamps would give wind resistance.
    'Didn't realise the 'Vespa' lights were on the Giro car too.

    When I saw you mention Vespa - I laughed out loud , not imagining scooter lights on a Stratos but having seen the photo and realised you were probably right I thought what a strange and fascinating world the Stratos world is !! Who would have thought it ? - and what a fount of wisdom and strange facts and knowledge we have within our membership base !! Long-live SEC !

    yes I think the Aseptygol Le-Mans cars had fiat 126 lights. Tried these on Mine but dont fit so they must have a slightly different moulded cavity height. Lights would be for low drag for sure.
