THE 200-MILE SIDECAR RACE.
THE 200–MILE SIDECAR RACE.
Since the Sidecar T.T. in the Isle of Man has been discontinued, the only important long-distance event for combinations is the Brooklands 200 miles sidecar race. This was contested recently, and the results were illuminating.
The race demonstrated, for one thing, the superiority of single-cylinder machines, each class-350, 600, and 1,000 c.c.—being won by a single.– The 360 c.c. class provided the closest finish ever known in a long distance Brooklands event, for Hicks, the Velocette expert, won by 2/5th sec. only.
Nortons won the 600 c.c. class. Three of this make started and they finished first, second and third.
