AGAIN BRUCE-BROWN HAS
WON THE GRAND PRIZE
Sets New World's Record at Terrific
Speed-American Drivers in For
Grand Prize Race Course, Savannah,
Nov. 30.--Flying faster than the biting
wind which swept the frozen course,
]avid L. Bruce-Brown, the young
American millionaire, today establish
ed a new world's record for automo
bile road races in winning his second
#rand Prize race in as many years at
an average speed at 74.55 miles an
hour. His average last year over the
same course was 70.55 miles an hour.
The supreme honor again went to
an American driver piloting a foreign
ear, but this year it was an Italian
Fiat instead of a German Benz that
eaTried the dauntless Bduce-Brown to
victory. His elapsed time today was
331 minutes and 20.13 seconds.
Bruce-Brown captured the greatest
American trophy only after a fierce
gnd nerve racking struggle in which
Eddie Hearn, driving kBenz was sec
tnd, two minutes behind, at 333:33.07,
and Ralph De Palma third at 334:40.85,
No mishap involving life or limb mar

be the last of these classic races at
Spectators on Their Feet.
The exciting finish of the -great con
test brought thousands of cheering
spectators to their feet so intense was
the interest. As the winner's red car
flashed into view a mile distant from
the grandstand on the home stretch a
mighty roar of applause rent the air
and increased in volume as the racer
crossed the line in a meteoric burst of
Of the 16 foreign and American rac
ing machines which darted away in
the start of the gruelling 411.36-mile
contest, only six finished. All of the
remainder were unable to undergo the
tearing endurance strain and were
eliminated from time to time by the
breaking of vital portions of their ma
chines. The foreign cars apparently
surpassed the American manufactur
ers as not a single one of the latter
crossed the tape at the finish in a
place. On the other hand, American
drivers demonstrated superiority over
the foreign pilots.
Outcome a Surprise.
The outcome of the race was a sur
prise to automobile enthusiasts, as
neither of the two favorites of yester
day both Frenchmen. were at the run
ning at the finish. Victory Hemery, the
Benz driver, who was heavily playe'I,
was not a contender for the honors
after the seventh lap. Louis Wagner,
the other favorite, retired his Fiat
from the contest in the 15th turn.
The most thrilling moments of the
spectacular race were witnessed at
the conclusion of the 22nd lap. On
the previous lap Bruc'e-Brown had
flashed by the grandstand in the lead,
with Eddie Hearn 36 seconds behin~
and Ralph Mulford following closely.
As Bruce-Brown's Fiat -appeared in
the distance a groan of dismay- wenit
out from thousands of throats when
it was seen that he was slowing down
for a stop at the pits. Scarcely had
his predicament become manifest when
Eddie Hearne burst into view and
.likewise slowed doXvn at the pits. A
wild burst of cheering rent the firma
ment when Ralph Mulford, the third
of the leading trio, passed the start
ing point only to bait at the Lozier
Race of Skill.
The stopping of three cars was the
signal for a spirited race between the
respective drivers and mechanicians in
taking On gasoline and changng tires.
The spectators leaned forward and
shouted encouragements as oil cans
were deftly opened and their contents
fairly hurled into the steaming tanks.
Simultaneously knives were jabbed in
to the damaged tires and with the air
hissing like disturbed serpents they
were cast into the pits to be replaced
by new ones with incredible speed.
Mulford was the first to complete
repairs and a minute arnd a half after
he had halted, the Lozier, throbbing
and thumping, started away amid a
cloud of smoke. The crowd yelled it
self hoarse, urging on the remaining
drivers and expressing approval of the
lightning work of the Lozier team.
Twenty seconds after Mulford had
disappeared into the distance Bruce
Brown and his mechanician sprang
int'j their big Fiat and started in pur
suit. The Benz team was off again
10 seconds behind the Fiat. With re
ports from the unmuffled exhaust~ pop
ping like a gattling gun the machine
spurted forward and was lost to sight
in the wake of the lead.es.
