* * Sir,
I should like to point out two errors which appeared in the table of lap records on page 237 of the May issue of MOTOR SPORT.
Firstly, the lap record for the Brooklands Mountain Circuit to no longer held by R. 0. Shuttleworth driving an AlfaRomeo, but by R. Mays driving an E.R.A. at 84.13 m.p.h.
Secondly, you state that the lap record for the Tallaght Circuit is held jointly by I. P. Connell (Alfa-Romeo) and D. Campbell (Aston-Martin) at 68.05 m.p.h. The year before last Austin Dobson lapped this circuit driving an Alfa-Romeo at 70.52 m.p.h. and last year, driving a Frazer-Nash, I lapped it at 71.95 m.p.h. I am, Yours etc.,
Corston Lodge, Near Bristol. * * *
