TAX ON RACERS?

Constructors of Formula Junior cars are becoming increasingly worried at the lack of a decision from the Board of Trade on the question of purchase tax for Formula Junior cars. A number of manufacturers have delivered cars to British drivers without charging purchase tax in the hope that the Government will not require the tax to be paid, but the Board of Trade have now requested them not to deliver any more cars to the home market until the matter is settled. Should the Government decide that the tax is payable some of the constructors will amost certainly be put out of business and considerable dollar exports will be lost, as well as ruining Formula Junior racing in Britain. •

In our February issue we stated that the first meeting at Brands Hatch was on April 30th, when in actual fact a meeting is being organised by the B.R.S.C.C. on Easter Monday, April 18th.
