Jim Russell gives his views on the future of British racing, and refers to Stirling Moss. He thinks there are good signs of finding new talent for the future. Peter Townley, who has an interest in racing, asks how aspiring drivers can join one of the training schools. Jim Russell promotes his own racing school, stating that there is a one day's trial before commitment on either side. The cost to the driver will be about £5.00 per month.
