The winner of the first Grand Prix in 1906. This event earns its place in the story by virtue of being the first official, international race which bore the title of ‘Grand Prix, - the Grand Prix de l’ACF.

The race was won by a Hungarian born French domiciled Ferenc Szisz, driving a Renault AK90 Grand Prix alongside his riding mechanic and friend M. Marteau, at an average speed of 101.195 km/h (60.88 mph).
