A fantastic opportunity for a world-wide motor racing trip is being offered exclusively to Motor Sport readers in October by Worldmark Travel Ltd. An exciting itinerary covering six countries has been devised by the Motor Sport staff and will cover many different aspects of the sport as well as providing plenty of time for sightseeing.
The trip, which will last a month, will start from London and the party will fly to New York and then onwards to Watkins Glen for the United States Grand Prix. After the race the party will travel to San Francisco where other forms of American racing, including a night drag meet, will be visited. The week in San Francisco will be concluded by a visit to the Laguna Seca Can-Am race. This fascinating course can always be relied upon to produce one of the most exciting races of the year.
From the United States the World Tour will then fly to the Orient for a stay in Tokyo. Six days will be allowed in the Japanese capital and a visit to one of the major motor manufacturers will be organised. From Tokyo the party will move on for three days in Hong Kong and then on for a similar stay in Singapore. Flying from Singapore to Australia the party will pause for three days in Perth before leaving for Johannesburg, South Africa, for the final major sporting event a the tour—the Kyalami 9-Hours. This race, which finishes at night, has long been one of the most popular sports car races on the calendar.
The Motor Sport party will leave London on Friday, October 6th and return on Monday November 6th. All flights will be on scheduled airline services, mainly Quantas, and first class hotel accommodation will be provided throughout as well as continental breakfast and some other meals. Also inclusive will be all excursions and tours, admittance to the various events and all airline and airport charges.
The departure of the tour will be dependent upon raising a party of 20 people. The cost for this once in a lifetime tour is £780.
