MISS ENGLAND

AS stated before in these pages Wakefield of Hythe is not his setback in the last B.!. races at Detroit as anything but an tive to further effort. It has now definitely decided that there shall be Miss England III and that the record holder should be retired. Wakefield delayed his final decision his designer, Mr. Fred Cooper, was able to state that it was possible incorporate in the new craft a degree of safety than in the though she was a remarkably stable and at the same time to aim for a

of 135-140 m.p.h. At the present things have progressed just beyond costings stage and it is stated that price of a shot at the record and Harrnsworth Trophy is very near £50,000. Miss England III is to be powered two of the successful Rolls Royce type engines (of Schneider fame) will put the brake horse power figure the power plant at something 5,000. Miss England H was powered 3,800 and achieved the record speed 110 m.p.h. As the American, Gar is now stated by his native press to

equalled the figure of 110 m.p.h. in Miss America IX, recently re-engined by Liberty’s, it may be necessary for Kaye Don, Lord Wakefield’s pilot, to have to go record breaking seriously in the near future. That the opportunity is given to this country to defend this record is due solely to Lord Wakefield. and I am certain that all those with a glimmering of pride in their country’s prestige will accord him most hearty thanks. Thornycrofts, who have the contract, state that Miss England III will be completed about next March, so that she should be in time for the International Meeting on Lake Garda.—p.
