THE KENT & SUSSEX L.C.C. A VISITOR At Prescott we were pleased to meet again James Allison, home on a month's leave from India, and very happy to be back. Allison did very well at Club speed events and trials last year with the ex-Marcus Chambers' 4i-litre shortened Bentley. In India he runs a Red-Label 3-litre Bentley and says you go on climbing a Pass for a week on end, when even a Ford V8...

The High Speed Trial

The High Speed Trial THE J.C.C.'s DAY AT BROOKLANDS IN theory the J.C.C. high-speed trial is a reliability affair. In actual practice it is a perfectly good opportunity for a glorious blind.

HIGH SPEEDS AND GOOD RACING AT BROOKLANDS AFEW years ago the season always opened at Brooklands with the Easter Meeting, held on the Bank Holiday. In recent times, however, an earlier start has been made, but judging by the comparitive attendances, the Easter Meeting is still the real beginning of motor-racing at Weybridge.

EASTER MONDAY AT BROOKLANDS HIGH SPEEDS BUT FEW CLOSE FINISHES. MRS. PETRE WINS A RACE AT 118 M.P.H. AND OLIVER BERTRAM ONE AT 124 M.P.H. GOOD "MOUNTAIN" RACES. BROOKLANDS is a queer place.

At other times the handicapping is indifferent-and yet everyone is enthusiastic at the finish and leaves...
