M. G. Record Attempt.

Hans Horkuleyns, the Dutch ex-motorcyclist, put up some good performances last season with a Q type M.G. Midget. Among other achievements, he won the 750 c.c. class of the Grand Prix de France at Mon tffiery, and for a short time held the standing-start kilometre record in Class H.

A few months ago he had a bad accident in his native Amsterdam, which laid him up for a considerable time. Now he has emerged from convalescence and is hard at work preparing his car for an attempt on the 200 kilometre record in Class II.

Motor-cyclists generally seem to turn to M.G.’sDodson, Handley, Black, Simister, and Herkuleyns, to say nothing of Nuvolari !

A Dozen Cars for the French G.P.

The final and irrevocable closing of the entry list for the French G.P. has resulted in a total of 12 cars. The list with the official numbers of the cars, is as follows :

1. Merc6des-Benz I (Cavacciola).

2. Mercedes-Benz II (Fugioli).

3. Mercedes-Benz III (von Brauchitsch). 4. Auto-Union I (Stuck),

5. Auto-Union II (Varzi). 6. Auto-Union III (von Leittingett)

7. Alfa-Romeo I (Nuvolari).

8. Alfa-Romeo II (Chiron).

9. Mas;erati I (Btancelin).

10. Ma,scrati II (Zehender).

11. S.E.F.A.C. (Lehoux).

12. Bugatti (-).

it can be readily understood that this list has cast a gloom over French sporting circles. A solitary Bugatti and the untried Sefac–against six German cars and four Italians.

The Germans are going to have their revenge for those ironical dicers which greeted the announcement of their retirements last year !
