On Easter Monday we shall get some motor-racing at all events, for the V.S.C.C. is running speed trials at Luton Hoo, near Luton, Beds, in aid of the National Institute for the Blind. An ambitious course, 1.4 miles long and permitting speeds of well over 100 m.p.h., will be used, and entries of some 65 methanol-burning cars are expected, while an entertainments petrol allocation may permit the Edwardians to exercise them selves as well.
Obviously everyone possible will wish to attend, especially as the course is easily accessible from London by rail from St. Pancras and “Green Line Coach.” Entries close on March 11th and can be accepted, tilI the limit is reached, from members of the V.S.C.C., B.R.D.C., J.C.C., B.O.C., C.I.T.A.C. and 500 Club. We understand that entrants who contact Dunham & Haines, Langley Street, Luton, can have cars collected at Luton Station, garaged, taken to the course, and returned to the station, for £2 per car.
Club secretaries should busy themselves now, organising visits. Spectators enter Luton Hoo Park by the Park Street entrance : there will be a motor auction sale at 12 noon, profits over reserve prices to go to the Institute for the Blind, and racing commences at 1 p.m. Full details from T. W. Carson, “Mellalia”,– Pack Lane, Kempshott, Basingstoke, Hampshire.
