Midget cars leave the starting-line June 16,in the first Victorian T.Q. Championships. Eleven Interstate and Victorian drivers compete in the final. For the T.Q.'s - three-quarters the size of normal midget cars-skill is the order of the day at Garfield North, near Melbourne, Australia. Ray Foot, of South Australia, in car number three, the eventual winner, manoeuvres his car around the bend.
Next time around, drivers vie for positions. Despite wet conditions, they force their cars at high speeds along the rain-soaked track. Harry King, of Melbourne in car number eight who was to finish second, is in the lead, but soon to lose it. It's a sport of thrills, and one which is becoming increasingly popular throughout Victoria.
One car's out of the race. Officials push it off the track to clear a path for the others. The race is not without its spills. An anxious moment for one driver, but he's apparently unhurt. Pulled free, he'll have to watch the race from the sidelines. With several laps still to be completed, there's no shifting Ray Foot from his lead, and he stays there to win the Championship.
