CIRCUIT DUST

By BARRI.; LYNDON. Most of us have a healthy liking for I ‘seeing the wheels go round” whether it is merely to see a new horn fitted to our car, or to follow the hidden struggles which take place in every motor race. The best place for appreciating the unfolding of events in the latter is a seat in the control pit alongside the team-chief, and this is the position which the reader Of “Circuit Dust” occupies. The period is the 1933 racing season, and the pit is M.G., but the exploits and successes of

their friendly rivals is not neglected. The book brings together a wide range of events, from the Mannin Races in the Isle of Man to the Masaryk Grand Prix in Czechoslovakia, and the Pescara Race in Italy, while the interest of the accounts is further enhanced by first-class plans and fine photographs. The conception, the teething troubles and the development of the M.G. Magnette are revealed quite candidly and are typical of any other racing car, though the

first tests on the ice-bound roads of Northern Italy were more spartan than the average racing-car constructor has to face, but the cumulative effects of all the trials were fittingly crowned by Hall’s win in the 500 Miles Race at 106.5 m.p.h.

The book concludes with a suggestion that the M.G. Company may some day turn its attention to the building of fullsized Grand Prix cars, in which case Mr. Kimber may rely on the whole-hearted support of British sportsmen.
