THE NEW FORMULA LATER STILL
News is to hand that the abolition of the body dimensions regulation of the 1938-lo Formula no longer holds good. Apparently the Bureau Permanent des Constructeurs d ‘Automobiles has had to re-introduce the original clause about bodywork because several American cars had already been completed for the Indianapolis Race, which is a Formula race this year. These American oars may also run in some of the European Formula Grands Prix. E.R.A. had skeletons of
the narrower bodies ready but will now revert to the older designs.
The German Grand Prix will, after all.
be a Formula Race. If the Cork G.P. anaterialiges it will be the first race under the new .Formula and there will be fourteen 1938 Formula classics in all. Donington may stage a Formula Libre event to attract Germany by allowing her to use her _old cars, but if such support is assured under Formula ruling We should like to see our premier race so run .
