The 1906 Grand Prix was a resounding success and Dieppe beat competition from the Marne and Eure departments to host the second edition. The triangular course stretched from a western hairpin in the outskirts of Dieppe to the towns of Londinieres and then Eu, near Le Treport. This circuit held the French GP in 1907, 1908 and again when the race was restored in 1912. One enduring motor racing term was established in 1908. A ditch was dug after the Dieppe hairpin, from which each manufacturer serviced its cars during the 1908 race, thus coining the term “pits”.
