The Motor International Six-Hour Saloon-Car Race

Long-distance races have not, in recent years, attracted very much interest in this country; and with the steady down-grading of the Tourist Trophy race into little more than a shortish blind for G.T. cars round a Sussex airfield circuit, the sole remaining long-distance event in Britain until twelve months ago became the 750 M.C.'s Six-Hour Relay Race on the Club circuit at Silverstone—and this...
