With reference to the paragraph in your November issue about my Company’s Benz Dogcart, I would like to correct your statement as I have been its driver in Brighton Runs for the past five years (not this year).
The fire occurred at our Tonbridge Branch Rolls-Royce and Bentley Workshop not Tunbridge Wells. The car is an 1899 Benz not 1896. It was quite badly damaged, particularly the woodwork, but not destroyed. It is being rebuilt and should be ready to run in next year’s Brighton and so add to its previous 30 plus completed entries.
