Castrol have introduced four new motoring films which will soon be available for loan to motor clubs. These are “Works Entry,” which deals with the fortunes of the B.M.C. and Ford Rally teams on the 1963 Coupe des Alpes, and the Scottish Six Days’ Motorcycle Trials. A rather uninspiring film called “Journey Without Incident” shows that even the I.A.M.’s Director of Tests has time to admire ancient monuments as he drives along a city street! The fourth film is a documentary dealing with hovercraft entitled “Look, No Wings.” Further details are available from Castrol at Marylebone Road, London, N.W.1.
