After the recent Colmore Trial, Ken Wharton was presented with the 1948 British Trials Drivers’ Association Star and a silver-starred lapel badge was awarded to Onslow Bartlett, the runner-up. The marking system is slightly modified for the 1949 Star contest, and only closed invitation trials are recognised. Members of the B.T.D.A. may nominate eight approved trials and their best six will count for Star marking. The approved trials still to be held are: —

M.G.C.C. North West Centre Cockshoot Trial — April 10th.
Lancashire and Cheshire C.C. Derbyshire Sporting Trial — April 24th.
Plymouth M.C. “200” Challenge Trophy Trial — July 31st.
Lancashire A.C. Davis Trophy Trial — September 3rd.
Taunton M.C. Allen Trophy Trial — October 9th.
West Hants and Dorset C.C. Knott Cup Trial — October 16th.
Sheffield and Hallamshire M.C. High Peak Trial — October 23rd.
Maidstone and Mid-Kent M.C. Bossom Trophy Trial — October 30th.
Cheltenham M.C. Cheltenham Trial — November 12th.
Harrow C.C. Cottingham Memorial Trial — November 19th.
Liverpool M.C. Jeans Gold Cup Trial — November 27th.
Kentish Border C.C. Trial — November 27th.
North-West London M.C. Gloucester Trial — December 3rd.
Bristol M.C. & L.C.C. Roy Fedden Trial — December 10th.

This list, incidentally, is a useful guide to readers who may wish to marshal or spectate at worthwhile trials. Details are available from the B.T.D.A. and regular trials competitors who are not members would be well advised to join, especially with so many vexed trials problems looming on the horizon, or already casting a shadow. Membership costs a mere 10s. a year. J. M. Toulmin is Chairman and the Committee comprises Messrs. Appleton, Onslow Bartlett, Burgess, Clarkson, Haesendonck, Holt, Mansell, Ripley and Warburton. Hon. Sec.: D. G. Flather, Standard Steel Works, Tinsley, Sheffield. (Tel.: 50496.)
