From June 11 – 13, 1895, the pioneers of the nascent automobile industry – de Dion, Panhard, Levassor, Benz, Peugeot, Bollée, Michelin – came head-to-head over a distance of more than 1200 kilometres. The event marked the triumph of petrol driven engines over steam and the appearance of the pneumatic tyre. The modern automobile was born.
