Why Nice?[edit]

2nd para currently reads:

"In 1932, Louis Chiron won the Nice Grand Prix aboard a Bugatti T51, closely followed just 3.4 seconds behind by Raymond Sommer in an Alfa Romeo Monza with third place going to René Dreyfus, also in a Bugatti T51. In 1933, the race was won by Tazio Nuvolari in a Maserati 8C, followed by René Dreyfus in his Bugatti and Guy Moll in an Alfa Romeo Monza. In 1934, the race was again won by an Italian in an Alfa Romeo Tipo B, none other than the best driver of the season, Achille Varzi. The last season to feature a Grand Prix at Nice was in 1935, when the Alfa Romeo Tipo Bs dominated the circuit in the hands of Tazio Nuvolari and Louis Chiron, who placed second, and René Dreyfus, who took third."

Why are these four races being covered so prominently in the article? According to the list later in the article, these were not the first Formula Libre races, since there's reference to them in 1928. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 83.151.252.36 (talk) 11:31, 5 September 2016 (UTC)

1962 Indy race[edit]

USAC held a famous Formula Libre race at Indianapolis Raceway Park in 1962

What was famous about it? It's not explained here, nor in Indy's article, nor in USAC's. Loganberry (Talk) 00:45, 30 October 2006 (UTC)
