Sir,

My attention has been called to a letter in the June issue of MoToit SPORT wherein I am quoted as having said that my T-type M.G. regularly attained 104 m.p.h. going down to Starkey’s Corner at Donington in the 1937 12-Hour Sports Car race.

Now, maximum speed arguments I abhor, and speeds other than those recorded by dead accurate recording equipment can be most misleading. I would prefer to say that I consider. the figures given by Mr. Biggs, of 80+ unblown and 90+ blown, as being reasonable for a good T-type, and of sufficient elasticity to allow of the inclusion of exceptional performances.

My memory is not good enough I o recall at this date what speed was indicated by the rev.-counter in the cireninstances quoted, but -surely to drag downhill speeds into an argument lays one Open to be gravely misunderstood. The T-type could certainly :give a :good account of itself and was responsive to tuning : when adequately conducted it was even capable of “seeing off” sports cars of many times the cost, as witness the fact that the sports car record at Baekwell is held by a T-type M.G., and in quite good company.

‘Wishing your excellent journal every success. I am, Yours, etc.,
