ON GETTING INTO THE GAME

Sir, I read with interest the article “On Getting Into the Game” in the May issue

Of MOTOR SPORT.

One point, however, I think your contributor omitted. The best school of ordinary motoring is undeniably the motor-cycle, and hence the best school of motor racing is motor-cycle racing.

For a very small outlay the would-be racing driver can convert at home a touring motor-cycle into a serviceable racing machine. He can compete nearly every week-end in the small grass-track meetings that are held all over the country. These provide good, clean, interesting racing very cheaply ; and without the circus-like atmosphere of the dirt-track.

The experience they give in racing tactics, tuning and the curbing of excessive exuberance is invaluable, and blow-ups are more instructive than expensive.

Of course, a good deal of fast work on a car is also essential, but a season of this type in preparation for the real thing would, I think, be considerably more beneficial and interesting than consistent lappery on one’s own and other people’s sports-cars. Something after the grass-track style for cars would, I think, be a welcome

innovation. There must be many enthusiasts with modified Austin Sevens etc. who would jump at a chance to race in small events like this, and who could never afford serious racing or sprints. I am, Yours etc.,

SPECTATOR. Bromley,

Kent. *
