The S.C.C. of S. Australia will hold the Australian Grand Prix on January 2nd, at Nuriootpa, in the Barossa Valley, some 50 miles from Adelaide. The race will be over either 100 or 150 miles on individual handicap, but the winner of the G.P. will be the car making fastest time, for a prize of £170, the handicap winner to receive the same amount. Prize money totals over £700. It is hoped to run two scratch races on the same day, one for cars up to 1 1/2 litres, the other for cars over 1 1/2 litres, and a handicap race for cars not eligible for the Grand Prix.

The circuit is roughly square, with several additional corners and the pits will be situated on a four-fifths-mile straight, the opposite leg being the main street of Nuriootpa.. The lap-distance is about 3 miles, and the lap-record stands to the credit of A. Davidson (“2.9” Alfa-Romeo), at 74 m.p.h. Details from: S.C.C. of S.A., Verco Buildings, North Terrace, Adelaide (Tel.: Central 2904).
