wights turned out for 34 HARDY Club’s Night Trial

on November 26th, but of these machines only 11 were ” Bugs.” Starting from “The Spider’s Web” on the Watford By-Pass, at 10.30 p.m., competitors made their way by devious lanes and roads to Kop, where a timed hillclimb was held. Fastest time was made by C. Smith (Bugatti 2,261 c.c. S.) in 31.3 secs. while in Class B, for small cars, F. S. Hutchens, the Secretary of the Hornet Club, gained the honours with his Daytona Hornet in 38.3 secs.

On through the night, the next obstacle was a check “by a hay-stack” which was fortunately located by all, and where an acceleration and braking test was held. After this, with much route finding on the part of stiff-fingered passengers, came the observed hills of Stancombe (where an O.M. and Richards-Brown’s Chrysler failed), Sheepscombe and Portway, the latter being difficult to find through a slight error in the route card, and causing much congestion of revving Bugattis down cul-de-sac lanes. The finish was at Broadway, and the

last 20 miles stretch was cunningly arranged over narrow lanes with gates (fortunately open). At least two luckless individuals were caught in this trap, “pausing too long” to admire the dawn, and being unable to make up time on the last stretch to the ” Lygon Arms.”

RESULTS. Mrs. K. Martin (Wolseley Hornet), H. S. Nungali (Alvis) and K. Hutchison (Ford)
