On May 29, 1933, in the early morning, the planes were ready for this first race. Potez lined up two identical planes, powered by 250 hp engines, while Farman presented two different planes, one powered by a 400 hp Farman, the other by a 170 hp Renault Bengali, and finally Caudron equipped with a Renault Bengali engine and piloted by Delmotte.
Only three aircraft finally succeeded in running the event from start to finish. The Potez 53 flown by Georges Detré was ranked first with an average speed of 322.800 km/h, compared to 317 km/h for Delmotte's Caudron, which took second place. The Comper "Swift" came a long way behind, with an average speed of 240 km/h.
