Good News

The London C.C. announces, in connection with the future of the Crystal Palace and grounds, that the L.C.C. Parks Committee have been asked to investigate the possible use of the racing track. With the co-operation of the R.A.C., a “live” test was arranged for the afternoon of June 26th, to enable the members of the Committee, who toured the immediate neighbourhood, to judge for themselves the extent of any noise problem which might arise from a revival of racing on the track. The Committee considered that, although there would inevitably be some inconvenience to a few local residents from the noise of the racing, this factor is not so serious as to stand in the way of further investigations into the suggestion for racing there on a reasonable number of occasions. No commitments whatever have been entered into at this stage. Ken Carter, who took part in the test, sacrificed himself and his Cooper in this good cause and was taken to hospital.

Sports Cars In Colour

British sports cars featured again in the American Press when This Week Magazine appeared last May. The front cover, in colour, showed Erwin Goldschmidt in a very air-borne M.G. and inside was a colour-section illustrating Goldschmidt’s Allard, a Lea-Francis-engined B.M.W., and the start of the 1951 Watkins Glen race which attracted 200,000 spectators. Adjacent was an article by Raph Stein, in which he cites Crosley and Cunningham as the only all-American sport cars but concludes: “Thus far, Detroit hasn’t considered the sports-car market important enough to bother with, but if demand keeps zooming, look out, Europe!”

Price Slashing

A 1924 Rolls-Royce got itself into the daily Press last month because it had been reduced in price from £80 to £60. We foresee a new low-level in secondhand car prices this autumn and keen competition amongst vendors.
