Formal speech-making was therefore dispensed with and, after Colonel Giles had proposed the King, Colonel Sorel, genial representative in England of the Molsheim factory, undertook to distribute the prizes won by members during the year. The Victor Ludorum for the highest all-round performance was a gift from M. Bugatti and took the form of a silver model of a 2.3-litre racing car. It was won by Mr. K. W.
