THE FLORIO CUP.

THE race for the Florio Cup was held at St. Brieuc in Brittany on Sunday, 17th July, and was won by 2. Laly on a 3-litre Aries. The Aries has distin3. guished itself this season by winning the Burgundian 6-hour race on 26th May, and the 3-litre class of the 1. Belgian Grand Prix on 9th and 10th July. This victory comes as a good recompense for the very hard luck 2. experienced by the Aries firm in the Grand Prix d’EnduranCe, when the last minute breakage of the overhead 1. camshaft driving shaft robbed them of second place.

Second place was gained by Wagner on a 3.8-litre 3. Peugeot, whose builders were organising the race. The Peugeot actually won the race on time, but did not 1. win the Cup which was competed for on a formula basis similar to that used for the Rudge-Whitworth Cup. 1.
