EIGHT DAY HIGH SPEED TRIAL AT MONTLHERY.
Of late years the reliability test round France, known as the Tour de France, has failed to interest makers, probably because it was too costly for the returns it gave. In consequence, this year it will be replaced by an eightday reliability trial, known as the French Tourist Trophy, to be held from April 2nd-l0th on the Montlhery circuit. The competitors will probably be required to put up a high average for ten hours a day on eight consecutive days, with penalisations for irregular running and mechanical work on the cars. At the end of the day the machines will be placed under lock and key, and there will be two drivers allowed per car.
