A similar sort of thing seems to be happening in the...

DREYFUS SCORES HIS FIRST VICTORY FOR FERRARI Dreyfus and Chiron Win the Two Heats. Good Performance of Lewis and Martin.

The Brooklands reminiscences of G.P. Harvey Noble

Recounted to the Editor in a recent interview I think that George Harvey Noble has every right, with the late J. G. Parry Thomas, to be remembered as "Mr. Brooklands". He spent so much time at the Track at Weybridge that he had to give up two lucrative businesses. He raced a great variety of cars there, did almost daily stints of test driving, and knew every bump and contour, curve and angle of...
