SO many races this year have been marred by bad weather conditions that it was not surprising that Sunday, August 2nd, the day on which was held the Circuit du Dauphine, should dawn grey and cold, with a steady downpour of rain. In spite of this, however, a good crowd watched an exciting race which was eventually won by Scaron (Amilcar) in Class B, by Toselli (Bugatti) in Class C, and by Philippe Etancelin (Alfa-Romeo) in Class D. In the latter class there was a terrific struggle between the winner and Lehoux (Bugatti), who lead for the first few laps. The record speed for the race made by the late Eddoura of 128 k.p.h. was not beaten, but this was not to be wondered at when one remembers that heavy rain fell throughout the race.
