In 1930, the race was held at the new Anfa Circuit (official denomination "Anfa Grand Prix"). It claimed the life of driver Count Bruno d'Harcourt during a practice run. All winners, in touring cars, were either French or Monegasque.
There was no race in 1933 nor between 1935 and 1953. When it returned in 1954, it was held on a circuit at the city of Agadir for sports cars, and French dominance was interrupted by an Italian driver, Giuseppe Farina.
The following year the race was officially sanctioned and was held on October 19, 1958. The race was marred by the death of Stuart Lewis-Evans (second in the 1957 race) who died in a London hospital of burn injuries six days after crashing heavily at the dusty circuit. His Vanwall engine seized (possibly because of dust) and sent him lurching into barriers at high speed, igniting his car in flames. This was the last Grand Prix organized in Morocco.
