However, predicting the winners did not have to involve gambling. Programmes for the Brooklands Racing Drivers Club meetings in the early 1930s provided details of a ‘Forecast Competition’ in which:


‘The above prizes (first £5, second £3 and third


£2) are offered by the BRDC for correctly forecast- ing the numbers and finished order of the first four cars in the Road Race. The first prize will be awarded to the competitor submitting the most accurate forecast and the other prizes will be awarded in order of merit. In the event of more than one correct forecast being submitted, the forecast giving the speed most correct of the winner will be awarded the first prize, or in the event of no correct forecast, the most nearly correct will be judged the winner.’ A page in the programme could be filled in and then ‘...placed in one of the Receiving Boxes not later than 4.00pm on the race day, when they will be sealed and removed.’ Programme for the BRDC meeting 17th September 1933


Nevertheless, for many at Brooklands the age- old question still applied. How can you win a small fortune at a BARC meeting? By spending a large fortune!
