•••••■••• G.P. OF PORTUGAL (SPORTS)

(July 26th)

Bonetto and Gonzalez were driving the new open two-aeater Lancias, with V6 engines of 2.9 litres. Unfortunately, Gonzalez crashed in practice and, while not seriously hurt, had to return to Italy and was also unable to race again for a few weeks. The only real opposition to Bonetto came from Stirling Moss in a 3/-litre Jaguar XKI 20C, but after taking the lead at half-distance Bonetto had little difficulty in keeping the Jaguar at bay.

SPA 24-HOUR RACE-BELGIUM

(July 25t11/261h)

Run under the shadow of ill-feeling due to the last minute withdrawal of jaguar, Aston Martin, Lancia and Gordini, the 24-hour event at Spa was rather a flop. The entry ranged from works 4/-litre Ferrari coupes, a 3.4-litre works Alfa-Romeo and privately. owned Jaguars, down to stock ears. Running factory sports cars and amateur-driven standard saloons proved exceedingly unwise and the whole race was fraught with -danger. After the retirement of the Fangio-Sanesi Alfa-Romeo quite early on, and later the Ferrari of Maglioli-Carini, the remaining 4-litre coupe driven by Farina and Hawthorn had little difficulty in winning.
