Another street circuit victory for Trossi

Entries:
The first and only Vichy GP was run in two 30 lap heats and a 60 lap final on a tight city track. As it was raced the same day as the German Grand Prix several of the top drivers were missing but Scuderia Ferrari was there with Trossi and Lehoux and was challenged by a whole bunch of private Maseratis.

Étancelin took the lead followed by Lehoux. The tight winding track took its tolls as the Ferrari driver hit a kerb and had to do a pit stop. After one lap Ètancelin held a 12 second lead over Trossi with Straight, Dreyfus, and Falchetto following. Dreyfus pulled his Bugatti up to 2nd place and Straight passed Trossi as well. Soon however Trossi started to speed up and the Ferrari driver repassed both Straight and Dreyfus. As the race went on Étancelin's car developed serious brake problems. At the 34th lap the French driver could only look on as Trossi and Straight passed. So in the end it was yet another victory for the Ferrari team.

(Note 1)

The final developed into a fight between Lehoux and Étancelin. The former took the start followed by Chiron but the Alfa driver made a mistake at Saint Aubyn and hit the bank hard. So Lehoux led after the first lap followed by Étancelin, Staniland, Penn-Hughes and Scaron. Étancelin followed the leading Alfa closely and was soon by only to be repassed almost immediately. The top duo continued to swap places but it was soon clear that Étancelin on this track had the upper hand as the Maserati had higher top speed and he could pass the Alfa Romeo as he pleased on the straights. On the 23rd lap Lehoux had to make a pitstop for new plugs leaving the Maserati driver in front with a two minutes lead. So Étancelin made up for his frustrating defeat the week before by taking a fine victory over the Ferrari team, Howe being third in his private Maserati.

Rest of grid unknown.

Albi ended a seven week pause in Voiturette racing. Several cars overheated while waiting for the start flag to fall and Seaman (MG) stalled and got a 100 Fr fine for being push started. While leading, Veyron had to stop to change plugs but was later able to retake the lead from Leóz Abad and win.

July 22th was a busy day for motor racing as there were the Coppa Ciano in Italy and two Grand Prix races in France plus the first Voiturette race for almost two months, all on the same day! That also meant that the entry lists suffered quite a bit. At Albi Team Straight dominated, Hamilton leading before having to do a pit stop leaving his team mate to win in an old Maserati 8C. Veyron finished 3rd in the GP race after winning the Voiturette race.

Footnote:
1. Le Figaro gives total length for voiturette race as 160.338 km indicating course length of 8,909 km but 128.644 km/h speed would give 8.911 km. See also 1935 Albi GP footnote.
