almost everyone else gyrated on the now slippery corners-I. Smith’s Cooper more often than the alters-Brown himself, after Erie Brandon’s Cooper had stolen his lead, spun at Stowe, hut kept going. The final result was :

13randon, Leston. The four-lap handicap heats eoncluderl the raring. In the first Parkes’ exScott, twin-S.U. Morgan ” 4/4 ” wore down the handicap advantage of Grimsley’s little Austin after three laps. only to be passed itself on the run-in by Westley’s .).AG. and Lewis’s If..II.G. Coopers mixed with sports ears in the second heat, D. (.01. Taylor’s XI( 120 winning from Newton’s Frazer-Nash and Leary’s Cooper. Downing’s fast Connaught gained its second win in the third heat, the wet course reducing its speed by only 0.39 m.p.h. Swain and Russell were second and third in their XK 120s, and a heart-stopping ” phenomenal avoidance ” happened at Stowe when Hemsworth’s XIK 120 broadsided amid a tight. bunch of cars. Preece applied his brakes and slid forward, just. but only just, missing ramming IfentsNvorth ; and all those behind somehow contrived to

Goodhew’s f,agolula would have been in the running had it been placed, but it was otherwise engaged, at Brighton. As it. was, the Bentley, with rather a generous (1 min.) start, came through to win, so increasing its points to one

less tliall Mzcrgul irs, will only the M.C.C. Meeting to decide the issue ! Poor Margulies, running the Talbot. for the first time since it broke its crankshaft at Ibsley, could get no sense out of it arid was last. Taylor’s XK 120 was seeond, passing Downing’s Cotiumught on the run up to the finish. Sports cars filled the first seven places, in spite of More very determined cornering by LestOn’s J.B.S.
