Felix Millet showed a 5 cylinder rotary engine built into a bicycle wheel at
the Exposition Universelle in Paris in 1889. Millet had patented the engine in
1888, so must be considered the pioneer of the internal combustion rotary engine.
A machine powered by his engine took part in the Paris-Bordeaux-Paris race
of 1895 and the system was put into production by Darracq in 1900. (wiki)
