Books - 100 Years Of The British Automobile Racing Club (Author: Rogers)
Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine The Cyclecar Club was founded in 1912 and in December of that year they organised their first event, a trial through the Surrey countryside. By the end of the 1914-18 war, the term cyclecar was almost an insult as light vehicles had become more sophisticated and a decision was made to relaunch as the Junior Car Club. In 1920 the first Members Meeting took place at Brooklands and soon race meetings were regular and profitable features. The club continued to develop and had a strong membership through the 1930s but activities were suspended again due to war. In 1947 their Jersey Road Race was the first British road race to take place and at the end of that season, the Duke of Richmond & Gordon was elected president of the club and the following year opened a circuit on his Goodwood Estate. The BARC proper had arrived. Today the club operates several circuits in the UK and is responsible for the organisation of race meetings and championships all over country and without them there would be very little going on at the weekends. This well written book tells the story of the club from those early days right through to modern touring car races and even consultation duties on the Indian Grand Prix.
