    Background: Max Stewart of Australia driving a bright yellow Mildred won the Singapore Grand Prix yesterday (Sunday) after a gruelling race marked by crashes and breakdowns. Twenty-four cars took the starter's flag, but only eight finished.

    The 27 year old Stewart, Australia's Gold Star champion, pulled into the lead on the 19th of the 50 lap race. From then on, he remained unshaken. Other competitors broke down or skidded off the road. Two race Marshals were injured, neither seriously, when one car lost control on an oil slick. It his the two men as they were trying to beat out flames on another racing car which had just caught fire.

    Stewart's time was one hour 43 minutes 29.1 seconds over the 150 mile course. Vern Schuppan, driving a Palliser, came in second, 16.5 seconds later.
