The race was postponed in mid-June to have more hours of light. The hot heat caused many withdrawals, including the Lagache and Leonard’s Chenard & Walcker winners the year before due to the engine in focus. The Anglo-Saxon team this time brought home the victory. In second place the Lorraine Dietrich n.6 driven by Stoffel and Brisson with a gap of only one lap, while in third place the Lorraine Dietrich n.5 of De Courcelles and Rossignol also distanced a lap from the winners.
