In the early part of this year there began a movement in Club circles in Great Britain to encourage interest in building and racing single-seater ears. The basic idea was to provide an activity for the man who has built and raced a 750 Formula car, or an 1,172 Formula car, but could not afford, or did not want, to take the big step into semi-professional racing of the 1,100-c.c. sports-car category, or Formula 2 or 500-c.c. racing. Slowly but surely this idea of single-seater racing for Club drivers has been spreading and the Monoposto Register is growing in membership, has a sound working committee, and some ten to a dozen cars are under construction. It is visualised that the first event for these Club single-seaters shall take the form of a short race at Brands Hatch, probably in the 750 Club/Lotus Club meeting in the middle of next summer.

The rules for this proposed addition to Club racing are quite simple in asking for a limit of 1,000 c.c. if overhead valves are used and 1,500 c.c. if side-valves are used. Owner-driver-designer-tuner types of Clubmen are the ones being catered for, so it will not be any good asking Coopers or Lotus to build you a car, and overhead camshafts are barred, so you can put away that Coventry-Climax engine. If you want to join this band of builders, or know more about it, send a card to F. Tiedeman, 46a (rear), Station Road. North Harrow, Middlesex.
