The A.D.A.C. 1,000 Kilometers

Adenau, Germany, May 27th. THE A.D.A.C. 1,000-kilometre race, run over 44 laps of the famous Nurburgring, is fast developing a character of its own, in as much as it is becoming a super International Clubman's event, or stepping-stone for the amateur driver of sports or G.T. cars to branch out into the world of serious motor racing. With its 22 kilometres to the lap the Nurburgring can easily...

Stanley Sears' Trophy meeting

Snetterton,  May 14th IF you speak of "glorious Goodwood" it is presumably permissible to refer to "scruffy Snetterton," but at the Norfolk circuit you can enjoy informal racing, run with great enthusiasm and attracting a pleasingly varied entry. Oliver Sear says his aim is to apply the same light-hearted club atmosphere as was found at Brooklands pre-war—a very laudable aim, although it should...

The B.O.A.C. 500

The B.R.S.C.C. do it again Brands Hatch, England, April 7th Last year, when the B.R.S.C.C. and the British Overseas Airways Corporation combined to put on our first decent long-distance race for many years, and it proved to be a great success, they started planning the 1968 event but even the most ardent supporter could not really believe that a second six-hour event for Group 6 Prototypes and...

Whit-Monday at Crystal Palace

With a 2,000 guineas prize as the main attraction, the majority of Formula One drivers were to be found at the Mallory Park Circuit over the Whitsun holiday, and the entries for the B.A.R.C.'s Whit-Monday National Open Meeting at Crystal Palace consequently suffered, with most teams splitting their entries. Among those who elected in favour of the "London G.P." was last year's winner, Roy...
