I thought that the term 'Grand Prix' referred to a race of some sort that is part of a series, such that the points allocated at each event are all added up and at the end of the season whoever has the most gets the 'big prize'.

Yes, I think the earliest use of Grand Prix was a horse race with a fair bit of gold as the first prize.

The young lady involved in the shunt, although in a neck brace, has walked out of hospital and is on her way home.

I held is that LeMans was referred to as 'The Grand LeMans'.  So that is where I got it from.
