Trophy and the 200-Mile Race—are: to be organised at Brooklands this year. In the International Trophy, the popular_ new features of last year’s event are to be repeated. First, the layout of the course is being used again, and it may be remembered that this particular circuit, which combines portions of the Campbell Road Circuit and the outer Track, gives spectators in the public enclosures the best possible views of all
aspects of long distance racing. Then again, the brilliant spectacle of a rolling mass start will be a feature of the ‘138 race. The ingeni( ws handicapping system is the special attraction of the Inter national Trophy. An arrangement of ” handicap ” corners enables cars of differing engine sizes to race side by side and on equal terms over the same distance. Although a true handicap is provided, the race has all the advantages of a scratch event.
Ile International 200-Mile Race will be run on August 27th and it. is probable that the “Campbell” circuit will be used.
