In 1906 The French held the very first Grand Prix for manufactures over a 64-mile course near Le Mans. Of the 32 cars that started the race 11 remained after 12 laps split over two days. The winner was Ferenc Szisz, a Hungarian, driving a 90hp Renault.
These questions are based on Gary Paulsen's book called "The Car." This was a very interesting book and I think that any reader would like it. I liked it a lot and I hope that you did too. Do your best and good luck.
