ENTRIES FOR THE MONTE CARLO RALLY
It is still early to say whether the Monte Carlo classic will receive as great support as in former years. Factory entries, at least from England, are much reduced, while some of the amateurs may be discouraged by the stiffening of the schedule over the last 1,000 kilometres of the road section. However this may be, the change in regulations which has been
made this year should prevent almost entirely those complete overhauls en route Which made it possible for a car damaged or out of tune as a result of the trip ta arrive at Monte Carlo with no evidence of its mishaps, and a win in the 1936 Rally will be a direct indication of the
skill of the drivers and the stamina of the car. The following entries have so far been officially received :—
1. Lahaye and Quatresous (Renault).
2. aean Travona (Hotchkiss).
3. X. W. B. Saunderson (Bentley).
4. Mine. A. J. Cornelius Sybrandy and A. C. Cornelius (D.K.W.).
5. A. C. Stott (Bentley).
6. Leyte and Zeldenrust (Ford).
7. Major Douglas Morris (Ford).
Lahaye and Quatresous won last year’s Rally on a Renault and Jean Trevoux secured first place on his Hotchkiss in 1933. He is again starting from Athens. Other drivers from this point are H. E.
Symons (Wolseley), Murray (2-litre FrazerNash-B.M.W.) and probably T. H. Wisdom (Standard Flying Twenty).
Starters from Tallinn so far are A. P. Good and T. G. Moore on 44-litre Lagondas and S. H. Light (S.S. 100). Probably also Donald Healey (Triumph). Other likely entries are Wrohan (2-litre FrazerNash-B.M.W.) and Aldington on a 14-litre car, from Stavanger. Whalley is again taking his Ford and may also start from Norway. Kenneth Evans (M.G.) is so far the only candidate from England.
