The restriction on Grand Prix cars for 1913 included an 800 kg (1,764 lb) minimum weight and an 1,100 kg (2,425 lb) maximum weight, as well as a 14 mpg‑imp (20 L/100 km; 12 mpg‑US) fuel consumption limit. The buildup to the race and the race itself were marred by three fatal crashes. Bigio was killed testing his Itala before the race. In a separate incident before the race, Paul Zuccarelli was killed when his Peugeot crashed into a cart, and a spectator was killed when Kenelm Lee Guinness's Sunbeam crashed into a river. This made Amiens's fatality tally rise to 5 in the span of less than two months- 2 other people had been killed while testing on the roads being used for the circuit in May. After this race, this circuit- which included an 8-mile (13 km) long straight (which is now known as the D934)- was never used again for motor racing.
