  • Description

    SYNOPSIS: The place is Detroit and the occasion is the Memorial Trophy Race. Five American and one Canadian boat compete in this annual event for unlimited hydroplanes as thousands watch from the shore.

    In the final heat, Miss Thriftway covers the three-mile course on the Detroit River at an average speed of about ninety-eight miles-an-hour. The Canadian contender, Miss Supertest of London, Ontario, places second with an average speed of more than 94 miles-an-hour.

    The Memorial Trophy returns to the United States, where the driver Bill Muncie will guard it until next year's race.
