Placed Is Road Race
Success came to L. W. Fox, Mount Gambler-road racing motor cyclist, at the week end.
After several unsuccessful rides in leading road races over a period of the last two years. Fox (250 Triumph) ran second in the lightweight event at Darley, near Bacchus Marsh, on Monday.
Twenty-three riders had entered for the race which was won by J. Hudd. It was Fox's first placing on the road in a 250 c.c. event.
This entitled him to participate in the Invitation Race for the first three machines in every class raced at the meeting. Fox finished 11th in a field of 20, no disgrace for such a light machine among larger entries. Winner was George Morrison.
Bruce Pederick (500 B.S.A.). also of Mount Gambier, entered in the Senior Clubman's event, which was run in three heats. He started well and was in front for the first lap until he overshot a corner. This reduced his placing to third until he overshot another bend and dropped to sixth place to miss a position in the final by
Break-Away Club Formed
Eight motor-cyclists, who are dissatisfied with the administra tion of the Mount Gambier Motor Cycle and Light Car Club met privately on Tuesday night and decided to form a new club which they have called the Bar-None Motor-Cycle and Car Club.
Their chief claim against their old club was that it did not cater for motor cyclists who did not take part in races. They hope the Bar-None club will satisfy the touring, as well as the racing, motor cyclist.
Their aim is to give general satisfaction to the motor cyclist and car driver. They will try to improve the standard of motor cycling by educating riders in the proper care for their machines.
The new club has started a motor cyclists' library. Orders have been placed for a regular
influx of books.
Members have been invited to submit designs for a club badge at the next meeting which will be on Tuesday evening.
President of the Bar-None Club is Mr. J. R. Wilkinson and Sec retary Mr. J. Nicholls. No com mittee officers have yet been elected. Intending, new members should contact either the Presi dent or Secretary.
Mr. Wilkinson said yesterday that there were several items to
which club members would have to give their first consideration. They were - trials, club runs, hill climbs, speed trials, and dances to
aid club funds.
