IS RACING WORTH WHILE?

Tlihs, Ulster T.T. has been attacked in the Press as waste of time and money. The lessons learnt, states one critic, are of no value to the vast majority of motorists. “It is significant,” he remarks, “that firms like Rolls-Royce maintain their supremacy, without ever being represented . on the track.” Before the War, however, RollsRoyce regularly competed in motor races. They are still closely inter

ested in air racing ; whilst Lord Wakefield’s Miss England III has two of the Rolls-Royce engines that were used in last year’s Schneider Trophy contest and Stainforth’s successful attempt upon the world’s air speed record. “The experience gained in these attempts,” states Mr. A. F. Sidgreaves, Managing Director of the Company, “has taught more in a few months than would have been learnt with

ordinary aircraft in 10 years.”

This view is held also by Mr. Kimber, Managing Director of the M.G. Company. “The rivalry,” he says, ” between different firms in striving for track supremacy encourages research leading to new discoveries which are passed on to the average motorist. The success achieved by the British light car throughout the world can be attributed to records obtained on the track.”
