Paris-Rouen Run of 1894

Gianni Marin, The Motor Car, London House and Maxwell, 1963
Not really a race, it was nonetheless a competition for horseless carriages- likely the first such event ever. The photo shows two competitors driving through Mantes, where a luncheon was being held for the participants. The onlookers don't seem to be too excited or worried.
