Driving his first race since his accident in the Belgian GP, Stirling Moss won the 75-kilometre sports-car race at the Swedish Karlskoga meeting in the new 2-litre rear-engined Lotus Nineteen. Moss seemed fit as he ran to his car for the Le Mans type start but Joakim Bonnier, driving a Tipo 61 Maserati, was first away, and these two had a ding. dong battle until half-distance, when Moss began to draw away. He finally won by 6 sec, at an average speed of 67.87 mph. Third was David Piper (Lotus Fifteen) and fourth was Graham Whitehead (Lola).
Preliminary negotiations are going on preparatory to forming an HRG Association for both pre and post-war HRGs.

Kent, or Ian Dussek, Elmhurst, Farnborough Park, Kent.
In addition to carrying quite a large competition programme. the Land-Rover Owners’ Club have offered to do some de-ditching work at trials or similar events, and they are willing to supply a recovery team at Club events. Club Secretaries who are interested in this service should contact ECF Harding Esq., Land-Rover OC, Meteor Works, Solihull, Warwickshire.
