Events on this day

Interesting and notable events from the history of motor sport.

1898 11 October 1898 The first Russian Motor Race took place. The course ran a distance of 26 miles along the predominatly straight road (Volkhonskoye Shosse) that runs from Strelna up on the coast to Alexandrovskaya. The road is 13 miles long and the competitors travelled the full length before turning round and travelling 13 miles back again. There were six entries on what was a snowy day with the race being won by Pavel Belyaev riding 1.75 hp De Dion Bouton powered Clément tricycle, who completed the up-and-back course at a stately 16.9 mph.

1990 Alessandro Nannini had his right arm severed while trying to land his helicopter in the grounds of the family villa near Siena, the ground began to give way causing the crash. Ten hours of micro-surgery successfully re-attached the limb.
