    My grandfather took part in the Oases Circuit in February 1937. Fl/Lt. John Heber Percy flew a Puss Moth G-ABOC and was the first home although a complicated formula used to award points meant that the first prize went to a Von Sternburg in a Junkers Ju 86. If you have any more footage of the race I would be very interested. I have a photo showing John being interviewed by a camera crew either before or after the race. Thank you.
