This event was marked by a crash which
put seven cars off the road at the same time. Run off on July 26,1931, simultaneously with
a race for machines of over 1,500 cc it resulted in a win for Earl Howe, driving a five
year-old Delage. His average speed was 73.2 m.p.h. and he was third for the general
placing of the combined race. He was delayed by a wheel change on the first lap, but took
the lead on the twenty-first circuit and held it to the end. Delorme was second on a
Bugatti, the third being Wagniez on another machine of the same make.
