Historical Notes: In his scrapbook recording this race Lovelock said that after it `he was mobbed by "kind" but thoughtless enthusiasts, hundreds of whom appeared to want to slap me, none too gently, on any portion of my anatomy they could lay a finger on. It was really serious for they crowded round so closely that they were almost crushing and suffocating me' (Jack Lovelock papers. MSX-2254. Manuscripts and Archives Collection).
