In the 1954 event, sports cars <1300cc - the fourth placed finisher had fewer marks than the third place. Is this a typo, or some unexplained weirdness in the scorings and placings?

Thanks for pointing that out - it was a typo - I've fixed it!

These events organised by Midland Automobile Club - I've contacted their archives at Shelsley Walsh for more info.

Also there are 1955 pics at Revs.

Comments: I haven't been able to find anything on the winning T.A. Gold/Miss J. Martin Triumph TR2? I think she became Mrs Gold?

Some drivers earlier announced in the Birmingham Post in different cars e.g. John Sprinzel (Austin), L.S. Stross (Bristol 401).

Also F.M.B. Watkins (Alvis) does not appear above.

Eight cars disqualified: "two secret checks were operated."

#33. B. Harper/Miss. V.M. Holmes (Triumph TR2) - is this Velma Holmes, later worked for the B.A.R.C. in London, went to South Africa?
