At the Formula II race over the small circuit at Aix-le-Bain, in France, the H.W.M. team covered themselves in glory and upheld the magnificent record so far attained this season by the “equipe.”
As is usual at this meeting the race was run in two heats and final; in the first heat John Heath secured third place and in the second Stirling Moss won by over half a minute from Robert Manson on a “works” Simca.
In the final, which was over 57 laps, Moss finished a fine second to Rudolph Fischer, the Swiss driver of a 2-litre Ferrari.
1st : R. Fischer (Ferrari), 1 hr. 15 min. 14 sec, 49.68 m.p.h. ; 2nd : S. Moss (H.W.M.), 1 hr. 15 min. 26 sec. ; 3rd : A. Simon (Simca), 1 hr. 15 min. 37 sec. ; 4th : F. Cortese (Ferrari), 1 hr. 15 min. 39 sec., 1 lap behind ; 5th : A. Gordini (Simca), 1 hr. 15 min. 59 sec., 3 laps behind.
