Relay Race - Brooklands





Relay Race - Brooklands, July 25, 1931

Sixty-six machines started in this event, held at Brooklands for the first time on July 25, 1931. The cars ran in teams of three, each machine under handicap, and the fastest cars in each team covered thirty laps before the driver’s sash was passed to the next car, which then took up the running. The idea of the race was very original and, in spite of a heavy rain-storm and a water-logged track the event was most successful. Captain Waite’s team of supercharged Austins won at an average speed of 81.77 m.p.h., driven by L. Cushman, J.D. Barnes and C. Goodacre.
