Take a trip back in time to the world's first automotive endurance race:

It is 22nd July, 1894, in Paris. Throngs of people line the sides of the road, as far as the eye can see. Whether out of pure curiosity or to support the drivers during this exciting competition – they have all come to witness the world's first automotive endurance race with "horseless carriages", as the Parisian organizer "Le Petit Journal" officially announced.
