This Year's M.C.C. Exeter Trial

Rougemont Hotel, Exeter, 6.30 p.m., January 1st. We are just recuperating after coming in from the 25th M.C.C. Exeter Trial — as navigator (flattering term!) to C. D. F. Buckler in his decidedly-spartan Buckler. He had, it is true, fitted a very adequate windscreen, but strip wings, if they save avoirdupois, do NOT deflect the mud which was such a feature of this year's M.C.C. classic. Continued...

Reports of Recent Events

Hants and Berks M.C. Blackwater Trial A fairly happy-go-lucky event divided into saloon and open-car classes this trial was rendered unexpectedly difficult by the thaw. The entry, as seen assembled at the start at the "Ely," was a varied one in spite of this being a closed event. Denyer blotted his copybook on Good Earth, unexpectedly coming to rest in his famous Lea-Francis, but Yeats and...

At the end of the long wide straight past the pits a steeply-banked concrete curve was built on a radius of nearly 350 yards, running over the back...

WET COURSE SLOWS DOWN INTERNATIONAL PRESCOTT MEETING P. D. C. Walker (E.R.A.) Proves "Rain Master" on Magnificent Fastest Run THE weather gods were cruel indeed to the B.O.C. on September 12th. Practice day enjoyed perfect conditions, and was enlivened by the astonishing Freikaiserwagen unofficially beating Gerard's course-record, by Leslie Allard equalling Whincop's sports-car record, and, alas...

Mid-Surrey A.C. and V.S.C.C. Grand Cup Trial This famous trial, in its austerity guise, was confined to hills around Pirbright, after starting from a puzzled village in that area. Michael May was the leading light in organisation, rushing hither and thither in his mother's S.U.-carburetted Austin Seven "Chummy" with the brave owner as passenger. Nine observed sections and two special tests...
