The minor Picardy Grand Prix near Péronne was overshadowed by two fatal accidents involving notable international drivers. During practice Louis Trintignant crashed against a kilometre stone when swerving to avoid a gendarme on the track. During the race itself Guy Bouriat, who was fighting for the lead with Philippe Etancelin, crashed into a tree after losing control while lapping a slower car. Etancelin in a private Alfa Romeo Monza won the ill-fated race from Raymond Sommer and Marcel Lehoux.
