THE SINGER CAR CLUB.
A successful gymkhana was held at the Barnet Grass Speedway last month, when several hundred owner drivers and their friends assembled to partake and watch the many amusing events. After heavy rain, the surface was very spongy and the efforts of the competitors to make a quick get-away resulted in a deal of wheelspin. The musical chairs event was very popular and spectators were treated to an exhibition by Mr. Burton of broad.siding a G.P. Bugatti as competitors circled round the ring of chairs.
During the afternoon Messrs. Sout Fire Extinguishers gave a demonstration of their product on two blazing MorrisCowleys.
The secretary of the Singer Car Club is Mr. A. Waite, 59, Wroughton Road, S.W. 11, who will be pleased to send particulars of membership to all Singer owners who will get in touch with him.
