    The 5th JCC International Trophy Race at Brooklands on August Bank Holiday 1937.

    1st - Raymond Mays (not Mayes) - ERA "R4C"
    2nd - Johnny Wakefield - Maserati
    3rd - Billy Cotton (the band leader) - MG

    Mays' ERA "R4C" still races today as "R4D" - the final development of this car.
