Hopes to Set Six Records and
Possibly 24 at Daytona
By the Associated Press.
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla., February
13 —A grand slam In world records
may be essayed here by Sir Malcolm
Campbell of England In his forthcom
ing automobile speed trials.
The intrepid 47-year-old driver,
who has been rolling race cars down
the road for years, hopes to set six
new records and possibly 24.
Primarily, he is here to raise his
present mark of 245.773 miles per hour
over the 1-mile route and 246.086 over
the kilometer, as son as beach and
weather conditions permit.
Conditions Are Factor.
If successful in those atempts, there
is a possibility he also will seek new
records for 5 kilometers, 5 miles, 10
| kilometers and 10 miles. Whether he
goes after the other marks, however,
is problematical.
"I would like best in the world to
set new records for those distances,"
the British driver declared. "There is
nothing definite, however, regarding my
plans, and I will have to wait and see
what conditions are when I go for the
mile and the kilometer.
"The whole thing depends on the
condition of the beach and whether I
find it long enough to try for records
for distances up to 10 miles. The big
gest concern is whether I will be able >
to puli up to a stop, even on the pres
ent course, which has been lengthened
to 12 miles.”
Total of 24 Records.
Should Campbell decide to try for:
the new records for six distances from
one kilometer to 10 miles, and be sue-1
cessful, they would become six new,
international marks for cars of un- '
limited piston displacement automatic
ally. They also would become new
American records for unlimited dis-;
placement, international records for
class A cars with piston displacement ;
of 488 cubic inches and above, and
American records for that class, making :
a total of 24 records.
Campbell had planned to take his,
Bluebird car onto the beach today to ;
permit cameramen to photograph it, but
was prevented from doing so by threats
of rain. He expects to have it on -the
beach tomorrow.
Whether he will make a practice run
then depends entirely on the condition
of the beach. If it is favorable, he
probably will make a short run to test
out the motor and determine whether
the car is in general shipshape,
