Presenting you the Good Vintage Valves, as this event took place in 1914.

This is the French Grand Prix (Lyon), and try to rewind your brain to an era when “Grand Prix” didn’t even make any sense as a combination of words related to racing — mostly because racing didn’t make that much sense to everybody.

Still, apparently almost 300 thousand people watch Peugeot battling Mercedes for more than 700km. The chap with the stunning moustache is Christian Lautenschlager, winner of this event, possibly due to the aerodynamics of his facial hair.
