INTER-VARSITY SPEED TRIALS AT SYSTON

CAMBRIDGE WIN BY EIGHT EVENTS TO TWO FASTEST CAR TIME BY R. E. TONGUE (0) ON R-TYPE MIDGET Fine weather, a large and varied entry and the usual pleasant spirit of informality made the Inter-Varsity Speed Trials, held once again at Syston, near Grantham, a great success. Oliver Bertram's time of 28.3 secs. set up last year on the big Delage was eclipsed by R. E. Tongue (27.2 secs.) and also by the...

Letters from Readers

Sir, In order to vindicate my well-known and passionate love of accuracy in technical articles, I felt that I must write and point out two errors which appear in the printed version of my article describing the power unit of Mr. George Symond's Austin Seven "Grasshopper." It may be that the rush to get your January issue out had occasioned these. In the first place, the blower is obviously not...

Silverstone VSCC

Although 'new' cars were thin on the ground at the VSCC's traditional April season-opener at Silverstone, there was a healthy entry for the eleven-race programme and some close-fought finishes. And after Friday's wash-out test day it was a relief to find Saturday 13th calm and sunny all day. A capacity field of 34 starters contested the Brooks 1950's Sports Car Race, with the front row of Frank...

SHELSLEY IN A CLOUDBUST

SHELSLEY IN A CLOUDBURST The Midland A.C. was certainly very unlucky this year, for September 12th must have been one of the wettest days Worcestershire has known for a long time, and apart from the fact that a wet road surface is more detrimental to Shelsley than to any other event, rain at this venue has other bad effects. The" paddock "in the orchard becomes a morass, the path which spectators...

FOUR AIR COOLED 375 c.c. ENGINES IN A CAR FRAME

FOUR AIR COOLED 375 c.c. ENGINES IN A CAR FRAME IT has long been known by racing-car engineers that the air-cooled single cylinder motor-cycle engine has unquestionable advantages from. the viewpoint of sheer power/capacity ratio.

David and Goliath at Shelsley

Raymond Mays retains his title with a 1½-litre E.R.A. Hans Stuck finds his Auto-Union “impossible” on the wet surface. A well-run meeting but few outstanding performances. In 1930 Hans Stuck bore off the Shelsley record on his Austro-Daimler with what seemed to the spectators the greatest of ease, and ever since that date enthusiasts have spoken with bated breath of the return of the Bergmeister...
