WEIGHING OF CARS IN COMPETITIONS.
The Royal Automobile Club asks us to draw the attention of organisers of hill-climbing or other competitions, in which weight is a factor in the determination of the result, to the importance of taking all possible steps to prevent any material alteration in the weights of the competing cars between their being weighed and the hill climb. The ideal arrangement, the R.A.C. points out, is for the cars to be weighed at the foot of the hill immediately before the commencement of the competition, and to remain under the observation of officials of the trial until the moment of starting. When this is not feasible the nearest possible point, for weighing should be selected, and the cars placed in charge of observers until the starting line is reached.
