The opening meeting of the Half-Litre Club was held on the coldest Easter Monday of the twentieth century, but as all the engines were air-cooled, none of the cars froze-up. The meeting was well attended by the great British sporting publie, but as the Half-Litre Club chaps had not completed their full preparations for the 1953 season a rather poor turn-out of cars was seen and breakdowns were frequent. The racing was spirited, and there were some exciting moments after a heavy and sustained deluge of rain. Once again Master Don Parker showed his superiority not only through his driving ability, but in the excellent mechanical condition of his mount. Master Daniell in his Emerson showed us how to corner really fast on a wet and greasy track.   We hope that the Half-Litre Club will be blessed with hotter weather for the remainder of the 1953 season. —  C. M.
