race was actually developed like a steam tractor drawing a carriage full of travelers. In the years
that followed, motor races took location along city roads.

stretched from Paris to the Spanish capital, Madrid. The authorities considered prohibiting the
race mentioning lack of crowd control and some other dangers.

the route. The very first day of the race ended with fatalities. 2 drivers, one mechanic and 5
observers passed away. Many other spectators were injured. The race was halted too soon at
Bordeaux. Vehicles that had actually handled to make it through wreckage had to be pulled away
by equines. Amongst the dead was Marcel Renault. He was a brother to the creator of Renault;
one of automobile companies that still participates in the Grand Prix to this date. There needed to
be a better means.
The solution was not far in coming. In 1907, Hugh Locke King came up with the idea of having an
off-road circuit. Hugh built a racetrack where spectators could pay to enjoy races under safe
environments. This was the first of its kind worldwide. Thereafter, the Indianapolis Speedway,
Monza, Nurburigring and Monaco circuits were constructed. With the developing landscape, car
makers were also not left. Modern engines and car designs started to grace the racing scene. The
2 World Wars likewise contributed to this development.
Plane engines developed for the functions of war motivated auto engineers to come up with much
better vehicle engines.
