Lagonda Reconstruction.

Following on the encouraging figures for the last year’s trading, comes the news that Lagonda, Ltd., have materially strengthened their finances by the completion of an arrangement with an influential private syndicate.

The syndicate will be strongly represented on the Board of the Company, and will take an active interest in its management and policy. The present officials of the Company will remain unchanged, and the policy of production will be continued with the current range of models.

Circuit of Bray Preparation.

The successful Cuairt Bhre, or Circuit of Bray Race, will be held once again this year by the Irish Motor Racing Club. It will take place on Saturday, 18th May, over 40 laps of the Bray Circuit, which measures 3 miles 345 yards. The total distance will be approximately 128 miles.

The rate is a handicap event, and is opento any type of car barring saloons or coupes. The question of removing the mudguards from sports models is left to the discretion of the entrants. Any type of fuel may be used, but all special fuels, as opposed to standard fuels on sale to the public in the ordinary way, must be specified as to their ingredients on the entry form. There will be one official practising day, on Thursday, 16th May, between the hours of 5 a.m. and 7 a.m., when the course will be closed to other traffic. All entrants must complete three practice laps, one of which must not be slower than 40 m.p.h. The race itself will start at

3 on Saturday, and the cars will be sent away in groups, according to their handicap times. The handicap, incidentally, will be by a combination of credit laps and time allowances. Entries, at £7 per car, must reach the offices of the organisers at 1-2, Foster Place, Dublin, not later than mid-day,

April 27th. Team entries, at 43 3s. Od. per team, will close on the same day. No entries after this date will be considered, whatever the circumstances may be.

A goodly array of awards and cash prizes has been amassed, and the cash figures given below represent a minimum for each award. It is hoped to increase these, and further information on this point will be available at a later date. The winner will receive the Meath Trophy (perpetual), and Replica, together with £50. The second and third finishers will receive £30 and £20, respectively. An interesting award is the O’Boyle Trophy presented by Mr. Frank O’Boyle, the Irish driver, and replica, which will be awarded to the best Irish-born and

Irish-resident competi‘or. A similar award, called the Manby-Colegrave Trophy and presented by Mr. G. F. A. ManbyColegrave, will be contested in the Phcenix Park races, run by the Irish Motor Racing: Club later in the season.
