SPECIALISTS IN HIGH SPEED TUNING.

Some interesting work in progress at the premises of L. T. Delaney & Sons, Ltd.

AT 115, Carlton Vale, Maida Vale, London, N.W.6 is situated a workshop which would be the delight of every enthusiastic motorist. It is run by the firm of L. T. Delaney & Sons, Ltd., and at a recent visit we saw that many sports car owners are taking advantage of the experience of the members of the staff in obtaining the last ounce of power from their machines.

That they do so is hardly to be wondered at, for the wonderful performance at Brooklands of the Lea-Francis raced by C. T. Delaney is sufficient proof of the firm’s ability to ” deliver the goods.” This car is largely constructed of parts taken from the ” Leaf” with which Kaye Don won the first T.T. race in Ulster. It has won many Brooklands races, and has attained a speed of 110 m.p.h.

The head of the firm, Mr. L. T. Delaney, has been long associated with motor-racing and the motor industry. It is not generally known that he drove in the ParisMadrid race of 1903, and was the first man to bring a Bugatti car to this country. In those days it was known as the Bugatti-Hermes. Later, he became Managing Director of the Delauney-Belleville Company, and after the Great War occupied a similar position with the Lea Francis concern. At Carlton Vale the famous Silver Bullet reposes, the future plans for this car being as yet undecided. Finally, we inspected the new compression ignition

car which is being built for George Eyston by L. T. Delaney & Sons, Ltd., under the supervision of E. A. ‘D. Eldridge. With this car it is hoped to beat the world’s speed record for this type of automobile, at present held by the Cummings car of America.

So complete is their equipment that Delaneys are in a position to construct complete cars. Altogether, the premises display a high standard of careful workmanship, and sports car owners can be sure of really expert attention to the tuning of their steeds.
