Sir,

The remarks regarding the recent 1,000-mile Rally cannot be allowed to pass without comment.

Surely as a restricted event, organised for the benefit and enjoyment of the invited clubs, the Rally well and truly achieved its purpose, and Motor Sport would hardly, in good taste, have ruminated on the Rally in such a ashion if this had been understood.

After all the Rally, very rightly, was made up with a mixture of family ears, sports cars and specials, even vintage ears, driven mainly by novices in competition events. If the event was so absurdly easy, it is strange that so many eminent drivers failed to tie for awards. Beery uart and Secret, although not running as competitors, failed to finish the course, and other well-known British names failed the “Oh! so simple” final tests.

The report contained elsewhere in the December issue that a competitor was said to have ascended BwIch-y-Groes at 70 m.p.h., passing other ears, is a further instance of an apparent lack of knowledge. Conditions as well as the regulations made such a ” feat ‘” impossible.

Finally, as one who participated, I would humbly point out that there is a difference between a rally and a reliability trial and in neither event is sheer speed necessary or desirable.

I am, Yours, etc.,

Crawley. L. JENNER.
