History :

Caudron C-461 and C-561 were built as French participants for the Coupe Deutsch de la Meurthe 1936.

The two aircraft C-461 derived on the C-460 using the same engine Renault 456.

The single C-561 followed the type C-560 installing the engine Renault 446.

The special design of these two types was the idea of a cockpit totally integrated in the fuselage.

 

The 1936 edition was won by a C-450 with Yves Lacombe piloting, though.

The C-461 came in on second place piloted by Maurice Arnoux.

The C-541 suffered from technical problems and its start to the 1937 race. This should never happen, as the 1936 race was the last event of the Deutsch de la Meurthe and also the end of the Caudron racer history.
