Footage found of race between car, horse jumping fences in 1927
On Twitter today, we came across a link from UK’s The Gardian that showed a video of a horse and a car jumping fences in a race that took place in France 1927. Our guess is that ramps were probably set up for the car, but you can’t see any indication of that in the video.
Not much is known about the race or how it came to be, but the opening title says:
A Novel “Grand National” Despite bad weather conditions, car beats horse in unique race on the La Chapelle racecourse.
Check it out, and let the “horsepower” puns begin …
