George Wicken wins "Daily Telegraph" Trophy

A crowd of 46,000 watched thrilling racing, splendidly organised by the 500 Club under J. F. Gale, at Brands Hatch on August Bank Holiday. This was an International Meeting, but the only foreigners to appear were Johnie Claes (Cooper-J.A.P.), Lex Beels (Beels-J.A.P.) and Phil and Harry Schell (Cooper-J.A.P.s). The big questions were: Can we beat the foreign opposition and how will Stirling Moss,...

Modern times

The unspeakable event's of September 11th left their mark on everything and everyone around the globe, jerking our priorities into a new awareness of what really matters.

Excellent Racing at Ibsley

The, West Hants and Dorset C.C. ran one of its biggest meetings to date, in suitably sunny weather, on the occasion of the fourth race day at Ibsley, near Ringwood. Due to crop cultivation the former circuit could not be used, but a 1.9-mile lap of the perimeter provided a fine substitute and the old Paddock bend was still the most difficult, involving competitors in some truly phenomenal...
