On reading today’s The Spectator, I came across a glorious piece by Rowlinson Carter on Czechoslovakia’s love affair with the motor car. It struck me that it bears retelling to my fellow readers of Motor Sport.
“Czechoslovakia is crazy about motor cars and motor sport. There are some marvellous private collections of pre-war cars, and races or rallies almost every weekend. Even the racing fraternity must occasionally pay its party dues, as in an event being staged in Zernovica in August, `The Slovak National Uprising Golden Helmet Motor Cycle Road Race’. Perhaps Brands Hatch should consider laying on ‘The Repeal of The Corn Laws Moss Bros Grand Prix’.
