“Much of the track design, I understand, was done by the former G.P. driver Tony Brooks, who is on the B.A.R.C. Council. It has since been endorsed by Jack Brabham, though certain features did not exactly please him—which may result from Brooks’s limited experience of driving contemporary rear-engined racing cars.”— Maxwell Boyd writing about the new Thruxton circuit in The Sunday Times. This seems to be a case of courses for horses, which in our opinion is putting the cart before the horse.
