Hi Dinger,
You called the track right, wow are they fast! set a new track record 125mph, they only got three abreast but there were a couple of spectacular wrecks & the good part no one was hurt, next time I'm taking the camcorder the camera was to slow to catch anything.

the trial run was called the "first organized event" in 1894, and in 1895 the true race was held and won by Emille Levassor!

what was the last Oldmobile to roll off the line?

You need to wait for the last guy to let you know your right. A lot of us have left answers we THOUGHT were right!

Like me, I THINK it was an Alero.

No problem if Chevrolet4x4 says you're right you can still have the floor. This thread has been a kick, thank you Curtis73 for starting it.

And Olds, welcome and really, if 4x4 says you're right ask a new question.

The first official one was at leMans in 1906. Previous races did not carry the moniker of Gran Prix.
Won by Renault
