COTTINGHAM MEMORIAL TROPHY TRIAL
The first 1:airicted Trial organised by the Harrow Car Club took place on the 24th November over a familiar course in the Berkhamsted district. 48 entries were received, from the N.W. London, W.A.S.A., Great West, Berkhamsted, and the United Hospitals Clubs, but the team, prize went to the organisers, the Harrow Car Club, The Cottingham Trophy was
won by W. L. ,Jackson (Harrow).
Owing to the heavy rainfall of the last few weeks most of the Sections had alayer of slimy mud over a normally loose’ surface. Matters were rendered more difficult by a regulation barring competition tyres. The first hill was Spinning Wheel, near Hudnell, aptly named as it failed 27 cars. Tunnel Slide was deleted owing to a land-slide, while Jacob’s Ladder, just outside Berkhamsted, accounted for no less than 32 failures. Then followed a brake-and-time test at Bellington in which S. H. Allard (r.T. Ford) was easily the
best. Hawridge Hill was not really troublesome, and best time on the driving test which followed was made by D. K. Buckle. Paine’s End accounted for 18 failures, and by the time the survivors arrived at the Howard’s Park Hotel, near Tring, they were quite ready to call it a day. W. L.
