From Jon Bills book "Auburn Cord Duesenberg racers and record setters", I learned that the entry fee for the 1921 French Grand Prix was 83,000 francs. As best I can determine from the internet, that would be at least a few hundred thousand U.S. dollars today. With an entry fee that large, I was wondering how much did Jimmy Murphy win for his outstanding victory? Does anybody know? Thanks, Joel
