Race notes:
The entry was remarkable for its diversity. Instead of adopting the GP formula the AvD wisely chose a rather free and easy 'sports car' formula which admitted several thinly disguished racing machines but had the advantage of producing 46 entries. But some cars still raced without mudguards.
Class E started 2 minutes after class D, while the class F started another two minutes later. Grid for the Class F cars is unknown.
Pre-race sessions:
