    They ran it over two consecutive days I seem to remember. There's a great photo of Szisz with a wet towel over his face at the end, burning with tar fragments etc.

    One major contribution to their victory was Michelin's detachable rims.

    The cars are all lost, but Renault has a good running replica and one GP engine can be found in London's Science Museum. If the label posted is readable, you'll see it might have been used subsequently on an airship.
