French Grand Prix

1908 French GP Centennial


This is a very interesting video about last year's centennial celebration of the 1908 French Grand Prix. The race was an embarrassment to the French as a German Mercedes won with German Benz cars taking second and third. The race pre-dated the 1926 merger of Mercedes and Benz. The video is a mix of current day images and those from 1908 as a host of restored vintage cars appeared on the scene.
