The Veterans’ Run.

THE annual run to Brighton for veteran cars will take place this year on November 20th, starting from Moon’s Garage in Buckingham Palace Road, at 9.29 a.m., the cars leaving at one minute intervals.

Anyone wanting to enter should get in touch with Mr. C. S. Burney, at Brooklands Aerodrome, Byfleet, Surrey.

A Rainy Southport.

THE last meeting at Southport this year was ruined as a spectacle by torrential rain, so that it was not surprising that spectators were conspicuous by their absence.

The programme opened with a series of straight mile races, in which P. Stephen-. son (Austin), J. S. Aked (A.C.) and J. Field (Bugatti) all won two races each. These were followed by 3-mile races (1/ laps), in which W. L. Thompson (Austin) displayed some neat corner work to win three classes, while Jack Field won two with the single-seater Bugatti. The 5-mile races produced some good performances by Noel Carr with his 2-litre Bugatti, who won the 2,000 c.c., 3,000 C.C. and unlimited classes, Jack Field and

C. J. Jackson (Sunbeam) being second and third respectively in the last two classes. In the 11-mile races, Stephenson (Austin) began to turn the tables on Thompson and won three classes, while Field did the same to Noel Carr in two classes. Finally, the 25-mile race, which was won by Carr, after a great duel with Field

until the latter fell out with engine trouble, produced some fine racing, classes being won by Parish (Austin), Carswell (FrazerNash) and Carr (Bugatti).
