In the Grand Prix de France serie, F2, 25 May, Manzon was on the lead at the end of the race but eventually stopped to the pits after 2 h 28m (the race lasted 3 hours), to retire as the "couple conique" (In French as I don't know the technical term in English for "Couple") was broken. He was classified 5th.
In the Salon Cup, for Sportscars, 5 October, Robert Manzon won the race, driving the Gordini T15SS 16S.
