VSCC Lakeland Trial

The first sight which greeted competitors on leaving the Bridge Hotel, Buttermere, on the morning of the trial on November 5 W. Adrian Liddell's Vauxhall 30/98 being exercised up and down by its crew in an attempt to start its engine. The only other non-starter in an entry of 70 cars was G. S. Haigh's MG M-type due to the fact that its flywheel had fallen off.

Janet Blake passengered her husband John, in their 1928 Boulogne Frazer Nash, to win the short chassis class and the whole trial with a loss of only four points. Also outstanding in this class were the smart Cup Model Austin 7s of Messrs Downes and Evans, which are far from being trials specials.
