Crowds Storms Lancia After His Finish

With the first two places decided, the battle for third place was heated between Lancia’s F.I.A.T. and Tracy’s Locomobile. After Hemery completed his winning run, spectators packed the road near the grandstand. Lancia was forced to bring the F.I.A.T to a crawl before he crossed the finish line. He was stormed by a horde of admirers for his amazing race in what the New York Times called a “hurricane of cheers.”
