For some time the attention of French motorists has been concerned with the venue for the 1933 Grand Prix de l’A.C.F., or as it is usually termed in England, the French Grand Prix. All sorts of suggestions have been considered, and since the race has a monetarily beneficial effect on the locality in which it is held, competition from various parts of France has been keen. A circuit in Auvergne was put forward, then another from Vincennes, and in addition, a scheme was worked out for running the race in the Bois du Bologne, in Paris. All in turn were

dismissed, until finally the Club decided that no finer course could be found than the road-cum-track circuit at Linas-Montlhery. From the English enthusiasts’ point of view, we consider that their choice is ideal. Our experience of the French Grand Prix of 1931, which was held at Montlhery, gave us the opinion that spectators are able to obtain a better view of the racing at the famous circuit near Paris than on an ordinary road circuit like Le Mans. The reason is, of course, that as Montlhery is

built on private ground, provision has been made for spectators to walk round practically the entire course. When a race is held on public roads it is often impossible for the public to get anywhere near the circuit for long stretches without an uncomfortable cross-country scramble through hedges and over ditches.

Montlhery is within easy reach of Paris, so that anyone who wants to see a classic road event at not too great an expense should make a note of the date of the French Grand Prix for 1933, June 11th.
