National Benzole Co Ltd, have issued No 3 in their series of beautifully-produced books illustrating and briefly describing aspects of our national life. This one deals with sport and covers car rallies (rather naughtily illustrating a timed climb of Park Rash!), flying, gliding, hill-climbing, motor-cycle racing (a wicker-work-sidecar outfit is seen ascending the Brooklands Test Hill in 1911 in comparison with modern combinations cornering at Brands Hatch), and veteran-car rallies, as well as every non-mechanical sport you can think of. Write to Wellington House, Buckingham Gate, London, SW1, about your copy, mentioning Motor Sport.

The Roads Campaign Council of the British Road Federation has issued an edition of “Roads Matter” covering Scotland. It contains in 20 art pages, those pictures of traffic jams on inadequate main roads that are fascinating to study but which depict a national scandal.
