RACING AT WINFIELD TIM Winfield Meeting on October 13th seemed a good excuse for a breath of fresh air before the Show. So, at 4.45 p.m. on the 12th we left the office in the Jowett Jupiter, hound for the far North.

Easter At Goodwood

The Bank Holiday Meeting of the B.A.R.C. promised to be a first-class occasion but, although it was held in sunshine before a record crowd of 55,000, it fell short of that promise. Alberto Ascari and Baron de Graffenried failed to appear, there were many non-starters, and the big race of the day, over 21 laps, had five finishers, only four of whom completed the full distance, while the result was...

PARNELL To be perfectly frank, we went to the Donington Meeeting on August 17' without a great degree of enthusiasm, for the quality of the entry was not up to the standard one has come to expect at the Midland road-circuit.
