Differing Styles. — John Cooper’s Cooper 1,000 (69), with wheels exposed, and Poore’s all-enveloping Veritas at Goodwood. Poore easily caught Crook’s Veritas, to finish second in the Third September Handicap.

Out in Front. — Starting from the 34-second mark, Kenneth McAlpine had the First September Handicap to himself. His ex.”Bira” Maserati is here seen at speed.

Held, Sir! — Eric Brandon in a spot of bother at the September Prescott meeting, trying to go faster than Moss, who beat him by 1.05 sec. in the 1,100-c.c. racing class.

F.W.D. = F.T.D. — A. J. Butterworth smiles the victor’s smile at Brighton, where his four-wheel-drive, air-cooled 178 A.J.B. made fastest time.

Allard in Action. — Guy Warburton’s post-war 4-litre car climbing Prescott in 50.76 seconds.

The Duellists Again. — Parnell seizes his chance and passes the E-type E.R.A. as Walker slides wide at Woodcote Corner.
