Race report

Soon in the race Chiron took over the lead from Lehoux, who later got into a long fight with Philippe √Čtancelin for second position. Comotti, Straight and Hamilton were fighting for fourth position. When Lehoux's tyre blew he had to make multiple extra pitstops, which made him fall back in the field. Team mates Straight and Hamilton also struck tyre trouble and at the end of the race Hamilton had to retire with a leaking fuel tank. Lehoux fought back to third position finishing behind √Čtancelin. Chiron, driving an Alfa Romeo Tipo B, completed the required 60 laps the fastest and took victory.
