THE COLMORE CUP TRIAL. A Severe Test in the Cotswold Hills. By our Midlands Representative.

The dominant...

The Remaining Easter Events

Bristol M.C. & L.C.C. Lulsgate Race Meeting The day's sport at Lulsgate was just the thing that club members and their friends crave, and it is difficult to see why more such meetings cannot be held on similar disused airfields. The organisation was first class, even to public address and a beer tent, the racing most interesting, and they even had fencing to keep onlookers from the fastest...

CHAIN CHATTER by "CARROZZINO" NOW that the Spanish Grand Prix, the first of the World Championship classics, is over, it might be interesting to take stock of what has happened. The Italians attended in full force while not one single English factory machine was present, and though many people felt it rather foolish to throw away points so easily, it turned out differently. Thanks to some of...

This Year's M.C.C. Exeter Trial

Rougemont Hotel, Exeter, 6.30 p.m., January 1st. We are just recuperating after coming in from the 25th M.C.C. Exeter Trial — as navigator (flattering term!) to C. D. F. Buckler in his decidedly-spartan Buckler. He had, it is true, fitted a very adequate windscreen, but strip wings, if they save avoirdupois, do NOT deflect the mud which was such a feature of this year's M.C.C. classic. Continued...

The Harrow C.C. Cottingham Memorial Trophy Trial

In fog conditions on November 19th, the Harrow C.C. ran off a most effective and stiff trial, the sections, mostly long slippery grass slopes, subdivided and marked accordingly, and all located within an economically small radius; 54 entries were received and the event counts towards the B.T.D.A. "Star." From the "Lambert Arms" at Aston Rowant a run of two miles brought cars to the first section...

Rally of the Thousand Lakes

It has often been said, by ourselves as much as by anyone, that experienced, professional rally crews who have had the opportunity to practise and to make notes will be more than a match for those relying only on local knowledge, provided that the professionals concerned have enough car-sympathy to hold themselves in check on long, rough events so that the cars will not succumb to prolonged...
