IN the aviation notes of your paper, I see that the subject of gliders is touched upon, and as one who is deeply interested in this form of aircraft, I have sought, but without success, to discover where one may obtain a machine in this country.
It seems very odd, to me, that so fascinating a sport as ” motorless flying” has been neglected here while the practicability of it has been demonstrated for many years in Germany. (We hop to make an announcement regarding an interesting development connected with gliding in this country in the near future.—ED.)
I observe in the November issue that there was no mention of dirt track racing, and as this is now admittedly a popular feature of sport” on wheels,” I hope that you are not going to neglect it, as I am sure many other readers would also be interested.
I certainly feel that your paper is just what the enthusiasts want, as one gets rather tired of the stereotyped utility motor paper, and I take this opportunity of wishing you every success.
I am extremely glad to see that ” MOTOR SPORT” has been revived again, and am glad to see that it includes air and boating sections. I think most sportsmen are in. erested in this even if, like myself, they cannot yet afford to own a plane.
One of the features which I thought the most interesting in the old days of the paper was the series known as ” Great Racing Marques,” in which the history of famous makes in the early days is outlined, and as several makes have not been done, I hope they will appear later. IMPECUNIOUS. Chelmsford.
