Twelve months ago, the first issue of THE BROOKLA.NDS GAZETTE made its appearance, and this is, therefore, our First Anniversary number. During the past year we have endeavoured to run the journal in the interest of all sporting motorists, and to throw our pages open to form a kind of universal club organ. This has naturally been a more or less difficult task, especially when one considers the uphill struggle to produce a new periodical where so many already exist. But we feel from the appreciation of our readers that we have a place to fill in the sphere of motoring literature, and to many THE BROOKLANDS GAZItTTE is something to look forward to each month. The views of some of our readers will be found elsewhere in our issue this month,
The T.T. Races have now become a matter of history, and after all the months of preparation the fate of the entrants has been decided in a few strenuous hours. We congratulate the winners upon their wonderful successes, and sympathise with those who, after gallant attempts, failed to gain the coveted honours. It is interesting to observe how British machines ridden by British riders triumphed in this event, and doubtless the lessons of the race will go to still further improve the excellence of our own machines, the supremacy of which is admitted wherever motor cycles are ridden.
Whilst the interest in sporting events is bound to be at its maximum during the summer months, we take this opportunity of reminding our readers that we have a live programme for what some sporting motorists describe as the “dead season,” and we can assure our friends that our pages will continue to hold their interest throughout the year without any “flat spots” or falling off of ” h.p.”
