The Leinster Trophy

(July 9th)-Dunboyne-193 Kilometres

The annual Irish race over the road circuit outside Dublin was once again sponsored by the Martell Brandy concern, and as always proved an entertaining meeting for the locals and those who went over from England. The 120-mile race was run on handicap, open to a wide variety of cars from Naylor’s J.B.W.-Maserati Formula 1 car to Lotus-Fords.

THE EIFELRENNEN (July 10th)-Nurburgring-155 Kilometres

Held on the 7.747-kilometre southern section of the Nurburgring, the annual Eifel races included a Formula Junior event amongst the motorcycle events. Run over 20 laps of the twisty and hilly circuit, the field contained a good entry and variety of cars, but bad weather slowed the tempo of the race considerably.

WESTBROOK HAY HILL-CLIMB (July 9th)

This annual event, run by the Herts County Auto & Aero Club on the private estate near Berkhamsted, once again counted in the British National Hill-Climb Championship, and naturally received a first-class entry. Rain clouds threatened the meeting continually, but by reason of a good speedy organisation everyone had their first runs on a dry course, the rain starting to fall just as the last class returned down the hill. In consequence records were broken in all but one of the sports classes, the record breakers being Richmond (Lotus-B.M.C.). aided by Downton tuning and Weber carburetters, Peter Boshier-Jones (Lotus Eleven), Fielding (Cooper-Climax) and Randles (Cooper-Monaco). There was every prospect of the big sports-car record being broken by Scragg, with his beautiful Lister Jaguar, but over enthusiasm caused him to spin on the first bend. In the racing classes Hughes (Cooper-Norton) broke the 500-c.c. class record and then in the 1.500-c.c. racing class the outright record for the hill was well and truly demolished. First to do this was Patsy Burt, who took her Cooper-Climax up in 25.04 sec., just 0.01 sec. better than the record, then Boshier-Jones did one of his usual shattering runs with the green and red Cooper-.J.A.P. and reeorded 24.06 sec., and he was followed by David Good. who recorded 24.56 sec., improving on the old record for the hill but unable to challenge the Welshman.

In the 1.500-c.c. class a first appearance was made by the latest Emery Special, a new F.2 car built by Paul Emery, using a Climax engine, a Colotti 5-speed gearbox from the Walker Team, and the usual standard layout of space-frame, rear-engine, coil-spring wishbone suspension, etc. It was driven in turn by Emery and Fielding and recorded a best time of 26.80 sec. In the 2,500-c.c, class the class record was broken by Owen with his Cooper-Climax and Keylock with his supercharged single-cam Cooper-Climax, while in the unlimited class Frank Norris did a very determined run in his supercharged Alta Special to clock 25.07 sec. to set up a new class record and come very close to the old course record.

With the rain falling there was no possibility of improvements in the second runs, but nevertheless the meeting continued smoothly and concluded with the runs for the Championship, these being in addition to the class runs. Times were all very slow due to the wet conditions, and throttle-control was more important than hill-climbing ability. On the first run J. Berry with the ex-Mays E.R.A. R4D very nearly beat all the Coopers, only Boshier-Jones being slightly faster, and on the sceond runs Berry was again fastest until the Hill-Climb Champion from Wales made the last run of the day and again just beat him. Their final times in the Championship runs were Berry 31.59 sec., Boshier-Jones 31.44 sec., so once again the Champion proved his worth despite difficult conditions. – D.S.J.
