BRISTOL BACKWELL HOUSE HILL-CLIMB

John Bolster’s ” Mary ” Makes Fastest Time

This year the go-ahead Bristol M.C. and L.C.C. was lucky in that no accident marred. its hill-climb at Backwell House, where Mr. Garnett has very sportingly spent 000 on improving the course.

Amongst the merely sporting cars Miss Joan Richmond made best unblown time in 29.7 secs., although her H.R.G. was not in the very finest fettle. The Halford-Cross-Rotary appeared in the racing class, but was not yet on form. The C.A.P.A, Austin Sevens put up a generally good show for exceedingly inexpensive cars. Their place in the scheme of things was explained in a letter published last month. Two of them had h.c. heads and double carburetters. John Bolster, after an epic drive, made best time of the day in “Mary in 23.3 secs. D. Fry’s Freikaiserwagen upheld the ” Shelsley Specials” with a

fine run in 24.7 secs., and Denis Evans’s Montlhery M.G. won the 750 c.c. and 1 i-litre racing classes in 25i secs. R. A. .1acdermid’s T-type M.G. Midget, with blower, was the most rapid sports-car, in 26.6 secs. This hill-climb is the real thing, in the very best tradition, and should receive the support of all true sprint exponents next year.
