C. W. Matheson - Long Island Automobile Club Sanctions Brooklyn...
Long Island Automobile Club Sanctions Brooklyn Dealers' Run Consent Given for Two-Day Contest to Montauk Point on July 19 and 20 Meeting Next Wednesday to Discuss TwentA-four Hour Race C. W. Matheson on "Miscalled Stock Car EveVits." The Long Island Automobile Club has consented to a sanction being given to the Brooklyn Motor Dealers AssBOClation run, on July 19 and 20, to Montauk Point and return, by a alg-zag route. A meeting of the Long Island Automobile Club will be held next Wednesday evening, at the clubhouse, Union street, when it Is expected that some action will be taken in regard to the A. A. A. issuing a sanction for a twenty-four-hour race at Brighton Beach, without first obtaining the consent of the local organization. The L. I. A. C. has no objection to the holding of such contests, but will strenuously oppose any such race while the course is In ils present unsafe condition. Many motor car manufacturers, accord ing to C. W. Matheson, are coming to a realization of the hopeless handicap un der which they Buffer in competing in so-called stock car events, the operation of the American Automobile Association's rules applying to stock cars being noto rious in the breach rather than in the observance. Mr. Matheson, hitherto a stanch adherent and active supporter of sanctioned contests, is wavering tn his allegiance, as he feels that specially prepared machines are entered and started in what are supposed to be strictly stock car events, and that cars regularly catalogued and sold as stock models have no chance In competition. "It Is the public that Is being fooled with these mis-called stock car events," declared Mr. Matheson, just previous to Btarting on a lengthy trip around the selling centers. "A false standard of quality is created by the car 'run in' as the stock article In events intended for the simon-pure stock machine. The public is under the belief that such cars are simpler in every respect to tho models they would purchase from the agent's floors, but the motor-wise know differently. "It has been pointed out with a great deal of truth that such departures from regular stock model procedure as special Ignition equipment, reduction in the number of piston rings, enlarged lubrication leads, specially constructed camshafts, specially timed valves, systematic lightening, until some cars vary only a pound, or two from the racing minimum of the class; racing rims and tire equipment, radical revision of the system of control and many other variations, are common. The lay mind is badly fooled, and experts are considerably mystified. "The day is not far distant when the motor public will revolt at the deception. and the manufacturers practicing such evasive tactics will reap a bitter reward. In the meantime, it would seem that the wisest thing for the manufacturer, who Is willing to enter cars representing stan dard construction cars taken indiscriminately from stock and sold to customers had better stay out of competition where trickery and technical evasion of ruleB are the predominating characteristics."
