On June 26, 1906, the very first motor race was held at Le Mans, the historic track in France. The 103-km-long circuit was on public roads, which were closed for the occasion. After 12 gruelling hours, the top three teams to finish the race were Renault, FIAT and Clément-Bayard. Winning this was the ‘Big Prize’. The French term for this became the name by which these races are now known. How do we know the races now?

Answer :

Grand Prix, Le Mans
