July 25, 1921 marked the first of only two occasions when an American car and driver won an international Grand Prix, that year held in Sarthe, Le Mans. It was the first GP in which a US make, Duesenberg, entered, and the first in which hydraulically operated four wheel brakes were used (by Duesenberg). Jimmy Murphy's Duesenberg averaged 78.1 miles per hour for the 321 mile race, which lasted over four hours. It was run on the venue which would soon become famous for Les Vingt-Quatre Heures du Mans in an extended version which measured 10.75 miles around. In this print, Murphy and mechanic Ernie Olsen speed through the very rocky White House turn. Painted by artist, Robert Gillespie.
