The 1924 French Grand Prix was held on August 3, on a road course near Givors, about 20 km outside of Lyon. This was a modified and shortened version of the track used for the race in 1914. The race was won by Giuseppe Campari in an Alfa Romeo, who managed to upset the local favorites Albert Divo and Robert Benoist, who finished second and third in their Delages. The race had been dominated by Antonio Ascari before his engine failed late.
