The Paris–Bordeaux–Paris Trail of June 1895 is sometimes called the "first motor race" although it did not conform to modern convention whereby the fastest finisher is the winner. It was a triumph for Émile Levassor who arrived first after completing the 1,178 km race in 48 hours, nearly six hours ahead of the runner-up. However, the official winner was Paul Koechlin, who arrived third in his Peugeot, exactly 11 hours slower than Levassor, but officially the race had been for four-seater cars, whereas Levassor and the runner-up drove two-seater cars.

  • La course Paris-Bordeaux-Paris du 11 juin 1895 est considérée comme la véritable première grande course automobile de l'histoire, bien qu'un mois plus tôt, le 18 mai en Italie, 5 concurrents prennent le départ de la course de Turin à Asti, un aller-retour de 93 km, et qu'en 1894, un concours automobile de Paris à Rouen, ait eu lieu mais n'était pas une course. Elle est aussi considérée rétrospectivement comme étant le Ier Grand Prix automobile de l'A.C.F..
