A CORRECTION

In the May issue, commenting upon the remarkably fine performance of the Type 328 Frazer-Nash-B.M.W., which had covered over 100 miles in one hour mules R.A.C. observation, driven by S. C. H. Davis and running fully equipped, we were led. to remark that it seemed very probable that one of those cars would cover the greatest distance during the M.C.C. One-Hour High-Speed Trial next September, at Brookland.s, to win a prize offered by Mr. Percy Bradley. It still seems highly probable that a Frazer-Nash-B.M.W. will gain the honours of making fastest time of the day, but definitely it will not win such a prise as

we suggested, because Mr. Bradley has not offered any form of award in connection with this event, and we were in error in suggesting that he had. Last year the magic average of 100 m.p.h. was missed by a mere matter of 1,48 m.p.h. by H. J. Aldington’s 2-litre Frazer-Nash-B.M.W., and eight other cars averaged over 85 m.p.h. Afterwards it was a freely expressed Opinion that several drivers intended to exceed 100 m.p.h. in the 1037 event. However, it must not be overlooked that the M.C.C. sets definite schedule speeds for this event and that often as much credit is due to those who only just achieve special

awards as to those who set up sensational averages. Moreover, look at it how you will, there is a certain element of danger in driving at over 100 m.p.h. in a sports car when the track is largely occupied by novice drivers, mainly in much slower cars.

Consequently, while the exploits of the 100 m.p.h. men will be followed with interest and admiration, naturally Mr. Bradley, the Clerk of the Course at Brooklands, is very anxious that we should make it clear that his prize was a pure figment of the Editorial imagination. We offer him our apologies.
