  • Description

    In Syracuse, Sicily, they are busy preparing for the 10th Syracuse Grand Prix on Sunday, March 20. Mechanics are making last-minute adjustments and tests on the cars, and the circuit is echoing with the roar of engines as the world's leading drivers make trial runs. The race - for Formula 11 cars - is one of the World Championship events.

    Britain's Stirling Moss March 17 set up a new lap record during trials - a hopeful sign in view of the bad luck he's had recently in his quest for the world title. His time was 1 min. 58.5 secs. - an average speed of 103.8 m.p.h. Australia's Jack Brabham, the World Champion, went round at a more leisurely speed. Eighteen cars are entered, and of these, ten are British Coopers.

    Among other top-flight drivers in Syracuse getting ready for the race are Gregory (Britain), Trintignant (France), Flockhart (Britain) and Schell (United States).
