THE GRAND PRIX DE LA MARNE
IT was rather a pity, perhaps, that the Grand Prix de la Marne, run over a road circuit in the neighbourhood of Reims, was held on the second day of the Belgian Touring Grand Prix, Sunday 5th July, as the clashing of the two events may have somewhat reduced the field of each. However, the Marne race attracted a satisfactory number of entries, although it was definitely...
Pr he Dieppe Grand Prix
Etancelin and Earl Howe Will their Classes
THE race for the unlimited category was won by Etancelin (Alfa-Romeo) who averaged 74.4 m.p.h. for the four hours of the event, and was closely followed by Czaikowski on a Bugatti.

Etancelin, driving a 2-litre Bugatti, won the sixteenth Grand Prix of the Automobile Club de France at Pau on 21st September last. For the 250 miles he averaged over 90 m.p.h. on the road, a speed which gives some idea of the severity of the struggle. Second place was gained by H. R. S. Birkin on a 4½-litre...
HE UGATTI GRAND PRIX.
Second Consecutive Win for Zanelli.
NE has got so used lately to seeing the entry lists of all the big races filled almost entirely by Bugattis, that one is no longer surprised to think that it is possible to run an important race confined entirely to the cars from Molsheim. Rather one was somewhat disappointed at le Mans on 1st June to find that in spite of quite a good...
CONTINENTAL NOTES. THE GRAND PRIX OF MARSEILLE RACE RUN ON SEPT. 25th ON MIRAMAS TRACK. 80 LAPS OF THE 5-Km. CIRCUIT
FOR many years now there has not been a race on the track at Miramas,
near Marseilles, indeed track racing is not in public favour in France today. It was in the nature of a speculation, then, when the Automobile Club de Marseille decided to hold a 400 kilometre event for...
THE CIRCUIT DES ROUTES PAVEES.
An A Victory on Dillicult Course.
THE pave roads race in the north of France is always an event of special interest, for instead of a specially prepared course with a surface as good as possible, the race takes place over the worst pave which can be found in Flanders, and combines the qualities of an endurance test with those of a speed event. The race also lasts...

MOTOR SPORT is now the only English journal which reports in full all important races in all parts of the world, and the completion of the series is therefore useful for reference purposes.-ED...
