THE RECORD SEASON REVIEWED—(continued from page 135).

been Freddie Zehender, driving a singleseater 3 litre NIaserati. It was rumoured that he intended to have a shot at the world’s hour record. but he seemed content to put in a lot of practice at a speed of anything up to 130 m.p.h. At last on November 23rd he announced his intention of breaking records, and in the space of three-quarters of an hour he annexed four records in Class D at a speed of from 130 to 132 m.p.h. These had been held by Diva’s Bugatti at some 2 or 3 m.p.h. slower.

Eyston and Maclure set out on November 25th with the streamlined 6 cylinder Riley in opposition to Veyron’s Bugatti records. They beat three of them, the 500 miles and kilometres, and the 3 hours, at 110.53, 112.37 and 112.42 m.p.h. respectively. Finally, de Gabardie and Duray got going under appalling conditions at Montih6ry with the intention of annexing long distance records in Class G. The weather was bitterly cold, but the drivers persevered and completed their scheduled 24 hours run. Their ” bag” consisted of 5 records made by the

type M.G. Magna earlier in the year, and their speed for 24 hours was 85.05 m.p.h.

This then, is the history of the records broken during the year 1933—at the time of writing. But so diligent are those who carry out this high speed work that it is possible in the few days left of this year that some fresh figures may be set up.
