Bira in a Simca-Gordini T15 entered by Equipe Gordini.[2] At first he was striped of his victory. This was due to the start, in which Prince Bertil had provided help by push-starting B. Biras car.[3] First a year later, B. Bira was officially acknowledge winner again.

The circuit was 1.37 miles (2.20 km) long and had five turns in an overall triangular shape.[4]
