The L.C.C.’s Relay Grand Prix.
SURELY there has never been a time whem the sports car—especially the small sports car—has been so popular ! And what a tribute this is to the design and reliability of the cars themselves. For a small outlay, an enthusiast can now buy a car which, with a little tuning, can hold its own in many Brooklands events. As an illustration of this, Mr. John Yule, the energetic Secretary of the Light Car Club, informs us that he has received
a record entry for the Relay Grand Prix to be held at Brooklands on July 113th. At the time of writing 29 teams, or 87 cars, have been entered at single fees, so that if any more drivers take advantage of the double fees period to enter, the traffic problem at the Fork will be like the parking ground at the Aldershot Tattoo ! The entry list is a representative one, Austin, M.G., Aston Martin, Riley, Frazer Nash, WolSeley and Salm,on all being
entered. Once again, the official Austin team,’ last year’s winners, will take part, but this year the cars will be the singleseaters which raced at the Avus Meeting and at the British Empire Trophy Race, and will be driven by the Earl of March, Barnes and Driscoll.
Some of the teams are very mixed, but this is all to the good, and the 1932 Relay Grand Prix promises to be a highly successful affair.
