Christmas Trial (Closed) (Dec. 20th)
The trial started from Whelpley Hill, Chesham, and finished at Beaconsfield. There were 28 entries and one non-starter. The 40-50-mile course embraced five observed sections and tests; five bonus marks were awarded to saloons and one mark for each passenger carried. Of the two hills — Northchurch and Kingshill, the latter included a restart on gradient, any roll-back being automatically shown on a light signal. A Christmas dinner was partaken at the Royal White Hart, Beaconsfield, and the afternoon devoted to a quiz and “brains trust.”
Premier, G. R. Lindsay (Sunbeam-Talbot).
First-Class Awards: J. G. Hardee (Austin Twelve saloon) and S. L. Pipe (Ford saloon).
