The abolition of the basic petrol ration is bound to reduce the number of news items and matters of topical interest available. The Editor’s increasing war-work duties and Home Guard obligations render his task of producing Motor Sport more precarious than ever before. An appeal is made to voluntary contributors to continue to submit for publication articles and news items of interest to readers of Motor Sport. Rough drafts are quite permissible. Incidentally, we have many “Cars I Have Owned” articles in hand, but would appreciate more of these contributions at the end of the summer.
