    GO-KART DRIVERS FROM HOLLAND AND LUXEMBOURG LINED UP WITH BRITISH COMPETITORS AT THE START OF SEVERAL OF THE DAY'S RACES AT BRANDS HATCH TODAY (SUNDAY).

THE EVENTUAL WINNER WAS R. KEELE DRIVING A MATADOR KART.

NEXT MONTH 300 KART DRIVERS ARE EXPECTED TO COMPETE IN A BIG EVENT AT SAFFRON-WALDON IN WHICH THE PRIZE WILL BE THE VACANT TITLE....
