THE DO NI NGTON GRAND PRIX OCTOBER 2nd

We have seen some classic races contested at Donington. this season, and it isfitting that F. G. Caner should close the racing year with the Donington Grand Prix, most important race at this circuit—a pukka International Sciatch contest for racing-type cars over a distance of approximately 310 miles. Enthusiasts are to our knowledge already arranging to meet at Donington for this race on October 2nd. The new ” T.T. ” circuit with the Melbourne Leg is to be used, covered 100 times. Tlie. field, limited to

thirty starters, will undoubtedly contain the pick of our racing men and cars and strong Contin..ntal opposition is expected. It will be recalled that last year Dick Seaman partnered Hans Ruesch with the 3.8-litre Alfa-Romeo, winning at 69.23 m.p.h. and putting the lap record at 73 49 m.p.h. The winner gets the perpetual Donington Park Trophy and replica and 050 in cash, the second entrant £120, third 05, fourth £50, and fifth £25, and all also receive Donington. statuettes. Entries closed just as we went to press on September 4th. A scratch race of this nature is worth going any distance to see, as all who saw the ” 200″ will agree, for the fascination of watching famous cars and drivers’ fortunes chop and change and of finally seeing the issue develop, until one is timing the leaders’ advantage in the closing stages of an historic contest, can surely never fade. Again we can say—see you at Donington,

on October 2nd. Particulars from : The Derby and D. M.C., Coppice House, Castle Donington, near Derby.
