(Sept 22nd)

In contrast with the previous big race meeting at Oulton Park the weather was fine for the September 22nd meeting. Generous prize money was offered. Coopers took the main event, Salvadori in the Formula II model being the winner of this Gold Cup race sponsored by the Daily Herald. This event resulted in a big contest between Lotus and Cooper cars, the Lotus exponents being very hard pressed by their Formula II rivals, four of these being entered in all. The Autosport Production Sports-Car Championship final went to R Fitzwilliam and R Carnegie in an MG MGA, with KN Rudd in an AC-Bristol in second place. This was a three-hour Le Mans-type start event. The Formula III race resulted in a fight between Stuart Lewis-Evans and Jim Russell, the latter finally making the winning post with a little in hand over his opponent. Finally came the saloon cars with a separate Gran Turismo class. Tony Brooks, driving Rob Walker’s 300SL led from start to finish, pursued by Ivor Bueb in an XK140 hard-top. Unusual entrant was Cordes’ Plymouth, which rolled considerably on corners.

Mid-Surrey AC.

Meetings to be held on the first Thursday and third Friday in future, at the club’s new headquarters, “The Sugar Bowl,” Brighton Road, Burgh Heath, Surrey, 8 p.m.

BARC Members’ Meeting (Sept. 22nd)

In this, the final meeting of the year, Graham Whitehead won the main event, the unlimited sports-car race of 10 laps duration. He succeeded in taking first place in his Aston Martin DB3S some way ahead of MW Head in a Cooper-Jaguar.

The Motor Sport Brooklands Memorial Trophy goes to PJS Lumsden (Lotus-Climax).

Sunbeam Register Sandhurst Rally (Oct. 7th)

The annual driving-tests and Concours d’Elegance of the Sunbeam STD Register were held in the beautiful grounds of the Royal Military Academy, by permission of the Commandant. The Concours d’Elegance was judged by Brig DS Gordon CBE, DSO, and the tests were marshalled by officer-cadets of the RMA Motor Sports Club under Capt Reynolds. Thirty-one cars competed, numbering 18 Sunbeams, of which two were twin-cam 3-litres, and 12 Talbots.
