After the unequivocal success of the 1934 T.T. race, the R.A.C. have wisely decided to leave the regulations for this year’s event practically unaltered. In brief, the principle adopted by the organisers is to bar camouflaged racing-cars and to make the race an informative test of standard sports cars. Superchargers will again be banned.
The T.T. will take place on 7th September, over a distance of approximately 487 miles. It will last for six hours, and the scratch cars will have to cover 35 laps of the 13+-mile Ards circuit. The handicaps have been slightly adjusted in the light of last year’s experience, and have been fixed as follow:
The second ” Cotswold Hundred ” trial started from the Red Horse Hotel, Stratford-on-Avon, and attracted 27 entries. The first hill, Stanton, was in a slippery condition and caused a good deal of trouble,
but everyone cheered up at the lunch interval, which was held in ideal conditions at the Appletree Inn. Old Stanway was rough but easy, and
this was followed by an amusing acceleration test, in which competitors had to sprint to their cars before moving off. The finish at the Queen’s Hotel, Cheltenham, was combined with a successful dinner. dance, at which Mrs. H. A. Smith presented the prizes.
The results of the trial were as follow : Gloria Challenge Trophy.-(for the best performance irrespective of class). K. G. Newnham Bowl (for the best per. formanee by a woman competitor) : Miss Joan Richmond. Club Tankards (for the best performances): Private owners: N, Mason (Gloria Six Class), F. R. Stone .,
