THE ” DEWAR ” TROPHY.
The Committee of the R.A.C. has awarded the ” Dewar” Trophy for 1925 to the Rover Co., Ltd., Coventry, in respect of a trial of a 14/45 Rover Car. This trophy, which was first awarded in 1906, is given annually by the R.A.C. for the most meritorious performance in a Certified Trial by the Club. The performance which secured the Trophy for Messrs. Rovers was fifty continuous ascents and descents of the well-known Welsh test hill, Bwlch-y-Groes. The hill is about
miles long and has an average gradient of i in 6.99. This is the first occasion since the Trophy was presented that it has been awarded for a Trial which was confined exclusively to hill climbing.

Mockford, Raleigh. $, (best performance out
side a winning team) L. C. Bentley, B.S.A.
