Modifications to the International Trophy Circuit.

Owing to the rather different sealc of performances of the • most up-to-tlate racing cars, it has been found necessary to modify the course used by the J.C.C. for their annual International Trophy Race. The usual ” S” bend in the Finishing Straight will be retained unaltered, but there will now be four, instead of three, ” channels ” at the Fork The four groups, in the order of

channels,” are as follow : Group 1, 750 c.c.. (S) and 1,100 ‘c.c. ; Group 2, 1,000 c.c. (S) and 2,000 c.c. ; Group 3, 2,500 c.c. (S) and 4,000 c.c. ; Group 4, 4,000 c.c. (S). Owing to the varying length of the laps to be covered by the different groups, no definite distance can be given for the race, but it will be100 laps of approximately 2.6 miles.

In conformity with Continental practice, the starting positions will be decided by the fastest officially observed lap speeds. The start will take place just before the “channels.”

Thanks to the generosity of Lord Nuffield, really worth while prize money is offered. For example the winner will receive £500 in cash and the S.M.M.T. Trophy. The awards to be given cover the finishers up to 8th place. By virtue of its automatic handicap

system the International Trophy is the easiest to follow of all the long race at 13rooklands. The leading car is the winning car, and the spectator is therefore relieved of the necessity of consulting handicap tables and complicated formulie.
