Introduced in 1933 “Grand Prix de l’Albigeos”, (Albi) soon became one of the classic pre-war Voiturette races. It was raced using the fast three lined ‘Les Planques’ public roads course beside the river Tarm, bumpy and narrow triangular circuit with the pits and the start on the shortest of the straights, the one closest to Albi.
A.C. Cars Ltd. is the oldest British car manufacturer with continuous production since 1901. The marque has enormous prestige and an extraordinary history – seemingly more fiction than fact.
This 4.724 mile circuit was situated in the new public roads of the Ain-Diab suburb of Casablanca, Morocco, the desert road towards Azemour and the coast road through the Sidi Abderhaman forest and two races were held between 1957 and 1958.
