SOME FACTS ABOUT THE LIMERICK RACE ABANDONMENT

From the Ulster Automobile Club’s “Monthly Review” comes sonic enlightening information about the abandonment of the Irish Motor Racing Club’s Limerick Grand Prix—one of those excellent Irish road-races originally scheduled for August Bank Holiday, thereby causing embarrassment to the J.C.C. It appears that the Limerick Race Committee, which looks after the local organisation, an.d raises the money whereby the race is financed, decided that the event was costing too much—roughly a matter of f,2,000—and it consequently presented an ultimatum to the I.M.R.C., stating that expenses must be limited and insisted that it should handle all race finance, intending, presumably, that the race entry fees should pass into its keeping. The I.M.R.C. felt that such a move would merely result in its being employed by the Limerick Committee to run the race in a purely technical capacity and accordingly refuse& ‘to

sanction the race, informing the A.I.A.C.R. that objection to the J.C.C.’s proposal to use August Bank Holiday for their International Trophy P. ace was accordingly withdrawn. Limerick people, however, must have the credit for being unusually keen on motor-racing, and they want their race. However, according to Harold C. Brown in the Ulster A.C. “Review,” hopes are not promising, although the International date had not, in March, been surrendered to the J.C.C.
