The action of the Royal Automobile Club in refusing to sanction further hill climbs and speed trials on public roads cannot be said to create much astonishment, in view of the attitude of a certain section of the spectators for some time past. In fact, had not the governing body of automobilism taken action on its own account, it is probable that a higher authority would have done so.
It is an ill wind that blows nobody good, however, and the banning of road events for the time being is certain to create an added interest in the famous Brooklands Track, as has already become obvious by the increased attendances at the smaller as well as the more important meetings.
Practical evidence of the appreciation of this Journal as a medium for the sporting motorist is to be found in the list of names on this page. The gentlemen named have associated themselves with us in a scheme whereby the BROOKLANDS GAZETTE should make a still further appeal to the clubman, and to all who are interested in motor sport.
