THE weather could hardly have been more miserable on Easter Monday morning, but the men got out their duffle-coats, the girls gay umbrellas, and a crowd of 45,000 set off for Goodwood, over roads rendered unexpectedly slippery after a dry spell. The B.A.R.C. had a splendid programme of six races, for saloons, Inter-Continental Formula, Formula Junior, Formula One, Sports Cars and G.T. Cars, so that no car appeared in more than one race and the entry closed at 141. Only one of these races was dull, the sports-car event in which inĀ 15 laps there was only one change of place amongst the first ten cars. The spectators must have been delighted at the excellent racing and no doubt enjoyed themselves in spite of the heavy rain, which relented for a time during the afternoon.
