The Grand Prix du Comminges.

In order to bring the race more into line with modern racing conditions, the Syndicat d'Initiative de Saint-Gaudens have modified the circuit used for the Grand Prix du Comminges. The old course measured 26 kilometres, with the result that the cars were only seen at long intervals. Now, by making a new road from the Pont de Valentine which runs parallel to the Caronne River, the course has been reduced to 11.005 kilometres.
English visitors to the Pyrenees should make a point of seeing the Grand Prix du Comminges on August 20th. The race attracts the cream of Continental drivers, the course is situated in beautiful surroundings, and permanent grandstands constructed of concrete provide good seating accommodation.
