by David Lowe • A new venue for the Northants LDoY eliminator on Sunday proved to be a considerable improvement on the one used in previous years. The event, which was held in the new cattle market at Kettering, attracted 89 entries and with more than enough room to spare, the organizers hope that next year there will be a much larger entry.

A high standard of driving and the keen competition was particularly reflected in the results for class D which was won by L. Fleming of Shell-Mex and BP Ltd with a loss of only 42 points followed by his colleague Fl. Woolley with a loss of 43 points. Third place was taken by B. Batten who lost only 47 points, three less than the winner of class A.
