ULiTI I 11 1 Assorted Rallies The British Clerk of the Weather certainly did his very worst from John o' Groats in this year's Monte Carlo event, and it remains to see what we are going to have for the R.A.C. event, for which there are 317 entries.

Vernon Balls' Amilcar was re-handicapped for the first event on account of the new streamline body which was fitted, the new figures...

Frazer-Nashes at Monaco

E.N.V. The suspension and chassis, I gather, will not be altered, at any rate, for the present. Seaman has sold the E.R.A. to Manby-Colegrave, who will be racing in various English and Irish events next season.
