THE MO MILE SIDE-CAR RACES.

This year’s” 200″ sidecar races were rather dull and uninspiring, as this event usually is. It was enlivened by a long duel in the boo c.c. class between Le Vack (New Hudson) and Denly (Norton), until the former blew up. The Byfleet was the scene of two rear-crashes Kempster had the front down tube of his McEvoy come in half, and Baldwin’s sidecar became unattached standing on end amid a cascade of sparks.

The big twins, as usual, were very disappointing, and the 600 c.c. winning speed was nearly five miles an hour faster than the i,000 c.c. Results as under :

350 c.c. RACE.

1. P. G. Hicks (348 Velocette), 70.84 m.p.h. 2 hr. 50 min. 39 4/5th secs.
