For the 1912 Grand Prix de France the ACF drew up simple regulations with
only the car width restricted to 1750mm. With these rules the popular 800kg
voiturette racers would race against the titanic Grand Prix cars over 2 days on
a 47.8 mile course to the northeast of Dieppe.  The Fiat S74 was one such
Grand Prix car with a 14.1 litre 4 cylinder engine!

A team of three of the giant red S74 race cars were entered to compete with
the new cars from Peugeot. An S74 at the hands of David Bruce-Brown was in
the lead at the end of the first day however a split fuel line and then borrowed
fuel led to disqualification. The sister S74 of Ralph DePalma was also
disqualified leaving the S74 of Louis Wagner to come in a distant second to
the
winning Peugeot of George Boillot well ahead of the 3rd placed voiturette
Sunbeam of Victor Rigal.
