The Lwow Grand Prix.

The Grand Prix of Lwow is a "round the town" race and is the chief motoring event in Poland. On June 11th there were two separate races, one for 1300 c.c. machines, and the other for care of unlimited capacity. Both were over 100 laps of the 3.041 kilometre circuit giving a total distance of 304 kilometres.
The small class attracted 10 starters, made up of Ripper, Mme. Itier, Simons, Veyron, Mme. Kozmian, Burggaller and Holuj on Bugattis, Landi aid Mme. Orsini on Maseratis, and Ruesch on an Alfa Romeo. Pierre Peyron led the field from start to finish, finishing well ahead of Burggaller. As was to be expected, this French victory over a German driver was vociferously applauded by the Poles.
In the unlimited race, a great duel took place between Wiktor Widengren and Bjornstadt, both on 2.3 litre Alfa Romeos. There were actually eight starters, as follows : Kubicek, Wustrow, Morand and Nadu on Bugattis; Bjornstadt, Widengren and Balestrero on Alfa Romeos, and Karl Ebb on a Mercedes Benz, but the race resolved itself into a fight between Widengren, Bjornstadt and Balestrero. Widengren led until near the end, but took so long over refuelling that he was passed by both Bjornstadt and Balestrero.
1. Bjornstadt (Alfa Romeo), 3h. 40m. 38.6s. 51.72 m.p.h.
2. Balestrero (Alfa Romeo), 3h. 43m. 53.3s.
