Rex Judd's Brooklands' re-union

On the evening of April 27th another of Rex Judd's re-unions of Brooklands' motorcycle riders took place, appropriately, at the "Hand and Spear," Weybridge, close to the Track that is now out-of-bounds to those who wrote its history.

THE HUNDRED-MILE RACE AT SOUTHPORT After weeks of unpleasant weather the Saturday of August 8th dawned without a cloud in the sky, and a hot sun, tempered by a cool breeze from the sea, lit up the vast expanse of sand at South port. Very early, vans of outwardly ordinary aspect but actually carrying extremely valuable racing-cars, began to arrive at the Palace Hotel, where the Southport Motor...

Donington Park racing

Once again Tom Wheatcroft is going to try and get motor racing going again on the revised Donington Park circuit, with the first meetings scheduled for this spring. Twice in the past it has looked as though racing was going to start, but unforeseen legal hassles and planning problems have held things up, so let us hope that it is a case of third time lucky. At the moment the plans are that the...
