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.

Tne entries will be divided into three groups, (1) supercharged 750 c.c. and unsupercuarged up to 2,000 c.c. ; (2) supercharged 1,150 c.c., and unsupercharged over 2,000 c.c. ; (3) supercharged over 1,750 c.c. The entry fee is £16 16s. 6d. per car, with a 10% reduction for second and a 20 y, reduction for thud cars, up to March 31st. The final closing date is April 12th, and £21 per car will be charged during this period.

The race is open to cars of any type of car in racing trim, fitted with an open body deemed suitable by the Club for a race under road conditions. The length of the race will be 100 laps of approximately 2.6 miles, and the cars will be sent away in a massed start at 2.30 p.m. The awards are in keeping with the importance of the race. The first man will receive £500 presented by Lord Nuffield and a £100 Trophy presented by Lord Wakefield. He will also receive for one year the S.M. & M.T. Challenge Trophy. The first British car to finish will receive
