1911. FIAT S.74 GRAND PRIX, 14.1 LITRES. (ITALY) - 12/50

Town-to-town racing ceased after accidents in the 1903 Paris-Madrid race caused the event to be stopped at Bordeaux, and thc Gordon Ben- nett contests were then held on closed circuits until 1905. Although Grand Prix races from 1906 were held under formulae limiting fuel consumption, weight, or cylinder bore, genrally the engines got larger and cars more unmanageable. This huge 4 cylinder single overhead camshaft Fiat, designed by Avocato Carlo Cavalli, was one of the last of the chain-driven monsterst and won the 1911 American Grand Prize at Savannah at 74.45 m.p.h. driven by the wealthy 23 year old American amateur David Bruce- Brown.
