G.E. Ansell’s E.R.A. had its internals lubricated with Essolube for the British Empire Trophy race, which it won, and ran on Dunlop wheels and tyres. This car and the next three finishers in this race had Lodge plugs fired by Lucas ignition equipment, and were slowed for the corners by Ferodo-lined Girling brakes. The winner and 3rd and 4th home had Luvax-Girling dampers to control the suspension systems of their cars. Nixon’s Riley which won the Manx Cup race did so on Shell oil and Dunlop tyres and wheels, had Luvax-Girling shock-absorbers and, like the 2nd and 3rd cars home, Ferodo-lined brakes, while Lucas again looked after the ignition. Johnson’s Alvis, 3rd in the Manx Cup, had Luvax-Girling dampers and Girling brakes. Bear’s Bugatti, which was victorious in the Castletown Trophy race, relied on AngloAmerican oil, Dunlop tyres, Lodge plugs, de Ram, Andre and Luvax-Girling dampers and Ferodo-lined brakes.
