rr E CORIC INTERNATIONAL CAIRI A CE
On May 22nd, a Saturday, we have the second race at Cork—one of those excellent Irish road-races. This year the handicapping departs from B.A.R.C. traditions and is based on engine capacity, the 1,100 c.c. unblown cars being set a lap speed of 75.42 m.p.h., up to 89.62 m.p.h. for blown cars of more than 3,300 c.c. The Carrigrohane Circuit will be used, which measures 6 miles 154 yards to a lap, and thirty-three laps will be covered, or thirty-four laps by Class A cars, giving the popular total distance
of just over 200 miles. Practising takes place from 6.30-8 a.m. on May 20th and 21st. The race starts at 3.;() p.m. Entries finally closed on May 3rd. a maximum of thirty-five being accepted. The prizes include the Millfield Silver Trophy, replica and I:150 for the entrant of the winning car, the Merchants Silver Trophy, replica, and L75 for second place, Masters Silver Trophy, replica, and p50 for third place and 05 and silver plaque for fourth place. In addition, £275 and various prizes are divided in various ways
amongst other finishers. The race is organised by the 1.M.R.C. with the cooperation of the Cork and District M.C. English enthusiasts should note that special sea facilities are offered by the City of Cork Steam Packet Co.’s Fishguard-Cork motor vessel service. The open sea passage lasts seven hours.
Last year R. E. Tongue (E.R.A.) won at 85.53 m.p.h. and out of twentysix starters eighteen retired, the fast nature of the circuit finding many weaknesses.
