The first Empire Trophy race was won by John Cobb in the 10-1/2-litre Delage on the Brooklands Outer Circuit at 126.36 m....

Miscellany

Matthew Freddenberg’s Negative Gravity is the story of Miss Beatrice Shilling, who raced her Norton to Gold Star speeds at Brooklands, did valuable research on wartime aero engines at the RAE, and with her husband raced a very special Lagonda Rapier after the war.
