Racing began soon after the construction of the first successful petrol-fueled automobiles. In 1894, the first contest was organized by Paris magazine Le Perit Journal, a reliability test to determine best performance. Competitors included factory vehicles from Karl Benz's Benz & Cie. and Gottlieb Daimler and Wilhelm Maybach's DMG. In 1895, one year later, the first real race was staged in France, from Paris to Bordeaux. First over the line was Emile Levassor but he was disqualified because his car was not a required four-seater. The first auto race in the United States took place in Evanston, Illinois on November 28, 1895 over a 87.48-km (54.36 mile) course, with Frank Duryea winning in 10 hours and 23 minutes, beating three petrol-fueled and two electric cars. The first trophy awarded was the Vanderbilt Cup. Here is another great photograph of a race car.2500 PHOTO'S IN OUR store
