Sir,
I hope that Motor Sport, which I have been reading on and off since 1926, will quickly refrain from casting “nasturtiums” at the DAF Daffodil. In my untuned DAF on cooking petrol I regularly cruise at 70 m.p.h. on the A1-M (Darlington by-pass) and increase to 75 on the uphill section of A1 after the M going to Scotch Corner.

Included in the jibe of being incapable of exceeding Fraser’s top speed was the Fiat 500D, re, which, you yourself in June wrote : “Long runs with the accelerator flat on the floor, speedometer needle off the dial (it records to 70) . . .”

Trimdon Station. D.H.C. Rudd (Rev.).
[We can only remark that the timed speed of the DAF Daffodil is under 65 m.p.h. The Fiat 500D’s speedometer certainly indicated over 70 m.p.h. but its true top speed was 62 m.p.h. Both, though, are excellent of their kind—incidentally, we hope this reverend gentleman is never apprehended for driving his DAF at the furious speed of 75 m.p.h. in modern Britainl—Ed.)
