TWO BIG RACES AT BROOKLANDS
The J.C.C. International Trophy
THli most successful race held at Brooklands last year was undoubtedly the J .C.C. international trophy. For this event, it will be remembered, an entirely new system of handicapping was used, the different classes having to negotiate corners of varying severity, according to their size and speed.
For the 1934 International Trophy, which will be run on baturday, April 28th, the same handicapping method has been retained. Starting in the old Finishing Straigat, the cars will immediately take their respective paths wnich will be indicated by low fencing. They then proceed round the Bylleet Banking and up the Railway Straight, turning into the Finishing Straight and winding through ant’ ” bend before coming to the handicap-corners once more.
The only difference in the course from last year is that the smallest cars will have to make a slight deviation instead of having a straight path, as before.
