INTERNATIONAL 500 MILES RACE.

FULL details of the regulations for the forthcoming International 500-Miles Race have now been issued, and several interesting features are included, particularly the system of handicap which will be employed. Last year, the cars were handicapped purely on a class basis, the zero speed for each class being the existing record in that class ; this year the unit worked on is the speed of the winning car of each class in last year’s 500 Miles Race. Thus :—

is penalised on last year’s handicap with the exception of the 749 c.c. Austin, which has the advantage of over 31i minutes on its last year’s handicap.

As was the case last year, the British Racing Drivers’ Club is giving a bonus of 25 to every entrant whose car starts in the Race and completes one lap within the first ten laps of the Race at the qualifying speed of 80 m.p.h.

After careful consideration, the Committee of the B.R.D.C. decided not to impose any additional handicap upon the supercharged entries, as they were desirous not to take any step which might have the effect of dissuading fast cars from entering.
