1902 Paris to Vienna Race – 9.2 Litre Mors


This is Baron Pierre de Caters’ 1902 Mors Z-Type, a French-made racing car with a wooden chassis. The massive 9.2 litre four cylinder engine used side valves and magneto ignition to produce 60HP at a leisurely 960 rpm.

The Mors’ wooden wheels were driven through a double chain drive and the car was stopped via a foot-pedal transmission brake and a hand-lever operating rear wheel brakes.

In the 1902 Paris-Vienna race, Baron de Caters drove his Mors to 18th place, finishing some 4 hours behind the winning Renault of Marcel Renault.

It would normally have one driver with a stack of tyres in the back, which I have omitted. The wheels were a nightmare to draw as they have to be oval and in perspective.
