Background: The 24-hour race of Montjuich is staged for the seventh time. 43 machines participate. The drivers who participate in this international endurance and speed test, take the start. N2 12 is greatly delayed. The Pena Motorists Club has been the organizer of the event.
When 12 hours had transpired, 11 machines had given up the test, and after the 15th hour this number progressively increased. The lights pierce the shadows of night.
During the 24 hours all records are beaten in spite of this feet that the winning team, made up by the English Price-Darvill, slowed down their speed thinking that, taking into consideration the laps they had in advantage over their nearest pursuer, the victory was theirs.
The Italian-Spanish team Rippa-Fargas won in the 250 cc category and the Spaniards Bordoy-Traver in the 125 cc.
The winners receive the laurels.
