Lap speeds well over 80 m.p.h. are expected over the 4.9-mile circuit at the Curragh Military Camp in Co. Kildare, thirty miles from Dublin, when the Irish Motor Racing Club run their International meeting on September 10th. There will be two events, both of 100 miles, one a scratch race for which £300 in prize money will be offered, and the other a handicap race with £180 prize money attached. Any type of car will be eligible for the scratch event, and any car and driver not entered for the scratch race may run in the handicap. The roughly triangular circuit will be covered left-hand-in and comprises a 1 2/3 straight along the main Dublin-Cork road, followed by another straight of nearly a mile and then a winding section through the Curragh Camp, followed by a downhill drop to the start. Proceeds will be in aid of the Army Benevolent Fund, and military co-operation is promised.
