The Relay Grand Prix

ON 25th July the Light Car Relay Grand Prix was held at Brooklands under very adverse weather conditions when a tremendously heavy rain storm rendered the track waterlogged. Nevertheless sixty-six—the full entry list—took part in the event, and considering the heavy going, the speeds put up by many of the competitors were very good. The race was won by Captain Waite’s team of blown Anstin Sevens with an average speed of 81.77 m.p.h., and the second team to finish— comprising an Austin, a Lea-Francis and a Riley—averaged 80.14 m.p.h. Three unsupercharged Austins came third at 65.01 m.p.h.

65.01 m.p.h.
