over the Ards Circuit, near Belfast
A Running Commentary by F. J. FINDON at the Starting Point
JOHN SNAGGE at Newtownards and HENRY McMULLAN at Comber
(Copyright. See notice on page 518)
Forty-one entries, representing some of the finest British sports cars, are due to take part in the R.A.C. Tourist Trophy Race over the Ards Circuit, near Belfast, today. They will be handled by the cream of British drivers, though all followers of the race will regret the absence of Tazio Nuvolari, the Italian ace, who won the race last year in an M.G. Magnette at the record -peed of 78.65 m.p.h.
The race is for standard sports cars in full touring trim. Spectators and those who follow the race by means of the broadcast commentary will thus have an opportunity of seeing how the best sports cars that Britain can produce fare in a strenuous road race occupying approximately six hours.
An important alteration in the regulations this year excludes the use of superchargers, and this is likely to reduce speeds materially, but the race will be a thrilling one nevertheless, and will have the added interest that the cars running are practically the ' same as you can buy
The arrangements for this broadcast are described in an interesting article by H. W. McMullan , one of the commentators, which appears on page 479.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
