The Peking to Paris motor race was an automobile race, originally held in 1907, between Peking (now Beijing), and Paris, France, a distance of 9,317 miles or 14,994 km.
The idea for the race came from a challenge published in the Paris newspaper Le Matin on 31 January 1907, reading:
- "What needs to be proved today is that as long as a man has a
car, he can do anything and go anywhere. Is there anyone who will
undertake to travel this summer from Peking to Paris by automobile?"
