Whilst looking for something else, I noticed that in Autosport 22 July 1960 in "Coming Attractions" it lists
23 July Swansea Motor Club Race Meeting Llandow
I have not found any report of the event and I thought the first race at Llandow was 1964.
Does anyone know anything about this ?

I don't have anything on the race, if there was one, but I checked The Times Online and found a notification of sale by auction of the former RAF Llandow, which was to take place on Wednesday December 13th 1961. (Source The Times Nov 20th & 27th 1961)

As it had closed in 1957, I suppose it's feasible that it could have been used though.

Swansea Motor Club have a web site (and some "senior" members - one marshal I was talking to a few years ago admitted he could remember Spitfires being based at Pembrey!).
