Bristol M. C. & L.C.C. Castle Combe March Race Meeting

Some most exeiting racing took plat. in spite of heavy showers and a very strong wind. Leslie Hawthorne’s healthy Riley Nine had things all its own way in the first race, while Sparrowe’s Morgan ” 4/4,” now unblown, did its unsuccessful best to catch Gibbs’ Riley. Pretty Jean Bode gyrated her H.R.G. and the incredibly abbreviated Robros duelled with Moffat’s ” P13 “-engined M.G.; Jones’ old Alta was a tourist. Heat I of the 500-c.c. race emphasised .I.B.S. 1051 supremacy, Parker winning from Whitehouse’s Coma.r. Hawthorne now affected a I §-litre Riley for the next race and won iust as easily. Mrs. Bluebelle Gibbs could hardly have motored her ” Le Mans ” 11.11.G. more slowly— -perhaps she, like ourselves. was blue witli tile cold ; at all events she did not, ring the bc/fr. Ken Carter retrieved Cooper honours in Ileat 2 of the Formula III race, chased by Jones’ Iota. Boll Gerard was out in Ids. Cooper in this race. 111 the next race two Frazer-Nashs.
