The B.A.R.C. held a closed race meeting at Goodwood on May 30th, a very hot Saturday afternoon. There were nine races in all, run in quick succession.

A 10-lap scratch race for Formula Three cars started the programme and this saw an easy win for Bob Banting in the latest Lotus B.M.C. Chris Irwin (Merlyn Ford) came home in second place but in the final reckoning he was penalised one minute for a spin and was consequently unplaced, Angood and Herbertson coming second and third respectively.

Bob Deverell driving his quick Lotus Seven GT had a disappointment in the race for Grand Touring car up to 1150 c.c. He led until the last lap and then the Lotus got a bit hot and he pulled off the track at St. Mary’s. This put Clive Lacey (Merlyn Ford) into the lead and he had an easy win from Peter Creasey who was driving a Marcos Ford.

Hugh Dibley won the Formula Libre race in the very fast Repco Brabham Climax, and in the sports car event, which he also won, he established a new lap record for sports cars at 100.23 m.p.h. These two races were similar and rather processional: in the first Chris Williams in his Lotus-Ford took second place to Dibley but in the sports car race Williams retired two laps from home with a broken crankshaft – another victim of the heat.

In the 5-lap Marque scratch race Tom Entwhistle in a T.V.R. Gramma led for most of the race after making a good start, but Sharp (M.G.B.) and Kendall (Morgan Plus Four) were hard on his heels. Then on the last lap Entwhistle’s car succumbed to the heat leaving Sharp to take first place.

The 7-lap saloon car race saw Boley Pittard bring the 1650-c.c. Willment Anglia home in first place to chalk up another four points for the Motor Sport Brooklands Memorial Trophy. Mick Cave’s A.40 took the class for under 1,200-c.c. cars and fourth place overall, second and third places going to Nicholson and Baldet respectively in Cortinas.

The handicappers went to work very successfully in the last two races: 5-lap handicaps, one for saloon cars, the other for sports and GT cars. In the first Roger Swanton in a Cortina just beat Pittard’s Anglia to the flag, while the second went to Mike Hawksworth in his Falcon 515.

All these races qualified for the Motor Sport Brooklands Memorial Trophy. Boley Pittard now seems to be favourite for the trophy with 19 points, while John Nicholson and Chris Williams are not far behind with r6 and 15 points respectively.
