RUMBLINGS

Alfas up again There is always something new from Africa, and those two ferocious Grand Prix races, one in Tripoli and one in Tunisia, which took place last month, reveal a new and more healthy situation in big-car racing.

THE B.M.C.R.C. CUP MEETING.

THE B. M. C. R. C. CUP MEETING. NoTHING very thrilling distinguished this meeting, held on July ioth, if we except an exhibition of frightful wobbles by J. S. Wright, who once more succeeded in going a little faster over a certain distance than anyone has ever done before on a motor-cycle.
