THE 500 c.c. HOUR RECORD.
G. E. NOTT and the Rudge
set up new figures.
The Hour Record in the 500 c.c. class is undoubtedly the most coveted of all motorcycle records, and is being continually attacked. Since it was first established it has been raised from approximately 40 to over 100 miles an hour. It has just fallen once again, the new holder being G. E. Nott. On the 19th November, riding an Ulster model Rudge-Whitworth at Montlhery, Nott succeeded
in covering 1061 miles in one hour. At the same time he broke the 100 miles record. His machine was of the type which is sold to the public, with a speed guarantee of 100 m.p.h., for 05.
It will be remembered that Nott was the first man to cover 200 miles in 2 hours, which, on a similar machine, he did at Brooklands a year ago.
