CC Wakefield gave a preview of the Castrol films in London on January 3rd and many were the notabilities who sat in judgment on them. The motor-cycle films dealt with the championship events throughout Europe, and Wakefield’s wisely chose Graham Walker to give the commentary. The motor racing films were by Habershon, with a commentary Castrol’s Competition Manager. They, too, dealt with the leading races, although a Prescott Hill-Climb was included but Barcelona omitted. The filming was good steady stuff rather than sensational, with plenty of shots of winners and celebrities, and fine views of the various circuits. All credit that the two “Cs,” crashes and Castrol, did not figure anywhere in these films, although this excellent oil assisted in the victories depicted. We noticed that Moss was acclaimed the only driver, with Nuvolari, to have twice won the TT, as has been stated elsewhere, but, as a correspondent points out, this honour belongs also to Charlie Dodson.
