It has come to our notice that not all our readers have been able to identify the pictures which, since March, 1942, have been appearing on the front cover of Motor Sport. Overseas readers who have never seen the cars portrayed have been badly baffled in certain instances, and as some people may keep their back issues by them, or may, indeed, decorate Services quarters with these pictures, we present herewith a complete list of what they represent. How many can you recognise without this aid?
