Albert Guyot, and the 1921 Corsica GP circuit.
The Automobile Grand Prix of Corsica is a unique Grand Prix for sports cars (SportsCars), essentially of Grand Tourism, which was held on April 21, 1921 in the center-east of Corsica (current south of Haute-Corse ). It is the only event of this type to have been organized on the Isle of Beauty.

History[edit | edit code]

Organized by the then nascent Automobile Club de la Corse1 and its President Noël Pinelli, it celebrates the centenary of the death of Napoleon I two weeks in advance.

The event takes place between April 18 and 21. The first day is devoted to scrutineering, and the second to qualifying on a five-kilometre course from Cateraggio to Prunete, where candidates must exceed the hourly average of 100 kilometres. After a day of rest, the hostilities really begin at 8:30 a.m., to end definitively at 4 p.m. All the crews are French; of the nine entered in Grand Touring, six managed to cross the finish line.

The route, roughly triangular and inland behind the Diane pond, follows a Casamozza route, Golo valley, Barchetta, Ponte Novo, Ponte Leccia, Francardo, Caporalino, Soveria, San Quilico pass (566 meters ), Corte, Tavignano valley -with its deep gorges-, Cateraggio, Prunete and Folelli (in straight lines that run along the coast, i.e. one third of the route favoring top speed near the sea, for two thirds of sinuosities also at overcome), with a return to Casamozza, the village where the departure and arrival are ordered. It is at the crossroads of the RT 50 (ex-RN 200) and RT 10 (ex-RN 198).

Turcat-Méry, from Marseilles, presented four vehicles (in the hands of de Bary, Henri Rougier, d'Avaray and François Repusseau, all these drivers reaching the finish), Chenard & Walker three (for d' Auvergne, André Lagache and Rouvier), and two Bignan Sport (with Albert Guyot and de Nougue), i.e. nine starters in Sport with three teams equipped with 3-litre engines, all the vehicles being four-seater (the two rear ones will be ballasted for racing balancing) and with all their original bodywork accessories. Bignan aligns the 3 L version of the car due to its engineer Némorin Causan.

Along with de Bary and Rougier, Turcat-Méry set the two fastest qualifying times on day two.

A Tourist Prize (seven entries) and a Light Car Prize (three competitors) are also awarded, both awarded after a single lap of the circuit.

The winner Sport Albert Guyot receives 50,000 francs from the race committee, 25,000 francs from the general council of Bouches-du-Rhône, and his car 25,000 francs from the general council of Corsica. The winners of the other two prizes after a loop are only awarded 2,500 francs each (Sady Lecointe on Rolland-Pilain in Tourism, and Pierre Delaunay on Bignan 1.4 l in lightweights).

Among the officials on arrival are the Minister of Public Works Yves Le Trocquer, and the deputy of Corsica and former Minister of the Navy Adolphe Landry.

The competition is tainted by the death of Delaunay (loss of control of his car on a speed bump, which also leads to the death of his on-board mechanic). A stele on the RN200 is there to still remember the event.
