Those readers who for reasons geographic, domestic or financial have to forgo the pleasure of a visit to Le Mans may like to note that on June 11th the National Traction Engine Rally organised by the N.T.E.C. and sponsored by Philips Electrical, Ltd., will take place at Bridge Farm, Appleford, near Abingdon, Berkshire, starting at 2 p.m.

This event, a change from motor racing, includes a parade, obstacle race, flat race, timber-loading demonstration, threshing-set working, relay race, tilting, ladies’ challenge trophy, tug-of-war and an elegance contest, it is hoped with more than two-dozen engines competing. In addition, there will be a display of model traction engines, and probably roundabouts and swings for the children.

The event will be opened by Raymond Glendenning, who is scheduled to arrive by helicopter. Admission costs 2s. per person, or 3s. for admission from 10.30 a.m. onwards and cars containing up to six persons can park for 10s. each, motor cycles 5s. each, these charges inclusive of admission. As the proceeds go to the Corneo-Plastic Unit and Eye Bank, the Girl Guides and the Appleford Sports Club, no grumbles should be beard. Advance tickets from: F. Stephens, N.T.F.C., 52, Bedford Row, London, W.C.1. or A. Dacre Lacy, P. & E. S., Ltd., 34, York Way, London, N.1.
