The Circuit des Ardennes was the first major race to be held on a closed course, instead of running from city to city. It also began a tradition of racing in the area that continues today at Spa-Francorchamps. Pierre de Crawhez originally suggested the event, and he won the second race to be staged the following year. The 1904 race, on an extended circuit, produced the closest finish when George Heath defeated Georges Teste by just one minute.
