Sunday 16th July 1922
Felice Nazzaro came out of retirement as a driver and took his Fiat 804 to victory in the 8th A.C.F. Grand Prix. The race was held for the first and only time on an 8.3 mile circuit of public roadways around Strasbourg. Nazzaro covered the 60 laps, 498 miles in 6 hours and 17 minutes, for an average of 79.198 mph. Nazzaro finished a bit more than 58 minutes ahead of runner-up Pierre de Vizcaya’s Bugatti T30. Nazzaro’s win was marred by the death of his nephew Biagio, who died when his Fiat broke an axle and crashed on the final lap. It was the second A.C.F. Grand Prix win for the veteran Nazzaro, having won the 2nd running 15 years earlier in 1907.
