Sir,

Having read with interest the article featuring Clive Gallop (November issue), and noting the reference to the Frazer-Nash win at Boulogne in 1925, I wondered whether you might care to reproduce the enclosed photograph, as I know that MOTOR SPORT is always interested in the “historic” angle.

You probably have the facts, but if not and you want to mention them, the “gen” is as follows:

The Boulogne Grand Prix des Voitures Légères was won by Captain (now Lt.-Col.) Clive Gallop, driving his s.v. Anzani-engined Frazer-Nash, in 4 hours 22 minutes, with two other Frazer-Nashes third and fifth. The famous Boulogne circuit was a difficult course – 280 miles of rough, hilly and tortuous roads. Teams of the finest English and continental makes of cars competed, but, in 1925, as again in 1926, Frazer-Nash won the Team Prize. Captain Gallop was also awarded the Gold Medal for the fastest lap (68 m.p.h) ; he twice broke the lap record.

I am, Yours, etc.,

W. H. Aldington

A.F.N., Ltd.

Isleworth

[We are delighted to be able to recall this excellent bit of driving on the part of Clive Gallop. – Ed.]
