A day of races was held on the 10th October 1901, the most famous race being that between Henry Ford and Alexander Winton. Everyone was so sure that Winton would win that race, that the cut glass punchbowl prize was chosen from one that Winton wanted. After all, Winton was in the more powerful car. However, although Winton initially led by some 200 yards, Ford started to catch up before Winton's engine started to let go. Ford thus overtook him and won the race, promptly declaring that "once is enough" when asked when he would race again.
