A Lucas NTT2 magneto was used by Graham, West and Monneret on the 500-c.c. parallel-twin A.J.S. motor-cycle with which they established new records at Montlhèry in the 500-c.c., 750-c.c. and 1,000-c.c. classes for 2, 3, 4 and 5 hours, 500 kilometres and 500 miles, at speeds of 107 to 111 m.p.h. The machine used petrol/benzole fuel, not racing dope, and beat the existing records, established by a Belgian F.N., by a handsome margin.

The Lucas racing magneto, for single or two-cylinder engines, will spark consistently up to 10,000 r.p.m., while its light weight and small dimensions make it especially suitable for the purpose for which it is intended. The magneto body is cast in Electron and embodies an Alnico magnet of special nickel-aluminium-cobalt alloy possessing exceptional magnetic properties and being particularly resistant to de-magnetisation. The armature runs on large ball-bearings and the magneto is effectively waterproofed.

Lucas provided the ignition equipment on the world’s fastest car and before Christmas they delivered the first ignition set for the B.R.M.
