THE BRIGHTON COURSE RECORD
On page 829 we draw attention to the casual attitude of the Brighton St Hove MC. over who holds the absolute course-record for Madeira Drive. The Club gave the record in the programme as 21.67 see., established by C. Rout (Moto-Vincent) in 1960, and announced officially that E. A. Woods (Norton-J.A.P.) had broken this with a tun in 21.62 sec. Reports in The Motor Cycle and Motoring News confirm this, The Motor is noncommittal and Autos/wt quotes only the car times, Motorcycle News., Motor Cycling and The iintocar, however, agree with MoTiat SPOR1 that the record belongs to Basil Keys (NortonJ.A.P.), who clocked 21.59 sec. in 1959. It is very important that the position be clarified. Perhaps MON next September the organisers will tell us who doer hold the Brighton course-record.
