1 mile – World Record Attempt Herbert W.Fletcher De Dietrich 45.0s Joe Tracy RenaultThis set a World Record Time, but it was not recognised by the European authorities on the matter. Tracy’s time was within three-fifths of a second of equalling the record for middleweight machines set by Hemery in Ostend in November. Two other Cuban drivers also attempted the mile. All of these records were held on a stretch of road between Guanjay and Artemisa, 30 miles from Havana.

The same Havana-San Cristobal course was used for a race on the 22nd October. There were no finishers in this race – one car crashed into a culvert, one had a broken axle, and another was stopped by police after an exchange of shots, although there were no casualties.
