Created in 1933 at the initiative of Suzanne Deutsch de la Meurthe and the Aero-Club of France, the third Deutsch Cup is a race of pure speed, reserved to the apparatuses of a cubic capacity lower than 8 liters, the goal, to improve the aeronautical techniques by pushing back the limits of the aerodynamics and by improving the performances of the engines.
The course imposed for this event consists of 20 laps of a 100 km circuit starting and finishing at the Étampes airfield and passing through Chartres and Dammarie, i.e. 2000 km with a refuelling point halfway through the course.
For the third event, which took place on May 19, 1935, the competition was fierce between the five qualified aircraft, all of which were produced by Caudron. This time, it was Delmotte who won, on his C-460 with a 330 hp Renault engine, at an average speed of 444 km/h. As stipulated in the rules, the third Deutsch Cup went to the Aéro-Club de France, as the flying club of the winning country.
