Jules Goux

Jules Goux won the 1912 Sarthe Cup at Le Mans driving a Peugeot.  In 1913 the Peugeot team traveled to the United States to race in the Indianapolis 500.  Goux won the race and became the first French person to do so.  It was reported that Goux consumed four bottles of champagne while driving the race and was quoted later as saying, "without good wine, I would have not been able to win."
