Praises Le Mans Course.
The New York Times
March 5, 1911
PARIS, March 4.—W. J. Morgan of New York, a representative of American automobile men, has examined the celebrated triangular course at Le Mans, in La Sarthe, where, after an interval of three years, competition for the Grand Prix de France are to be resumed next July.
He says that the course is splendidly suited for the purpose and will report in favor of it to the American team contesting for the prize.
So great is the enthusiasm over the coming event among the farmers of the Department of La Sarthe that they have contributed largely to raise a fund of $20,000 for the contingent expenses of the meeting.
Mr. Morgan proceeds to London with letters to the Chancellor of the Exchequer Lloyd-George, with whom he will seek to arrange for his entertainment by the Press Club of New York when the Chancellor visits America this year.
