NOTES OF CASES. - Automobile Races.
The Virginia Law Register
Automobile Races.—A spectator at an automobile race illegally conducted on a city street, who is injured by an automobile swerving in its course and leaving the street, is not precluded from recovering for his injury because he knew the race was illegally conducted, according to the decision of New York Court of Appeals in Johnson v. City of New York, 78 Northeastern Reporter, 715; but the injured spectator cannot recover merely on the ground of the illegality of the contest. He must prove negligence on the part of the defendant. See Canlong v. Wedger, 156 Massachusetts, 462, 31 Northeastern Reporter, 642, and Frost v. Josselyn, 180 Massachsetts, 389, 62 Northeastern Reporter, 469.
