THE HOUR RECORD.

All honour is due to Denly and his Norton for capturing the 500 c.c. hour record at Montlhery recently. Denly actually covered 100.57 miles in the 60 minutes, beating his own record, which he established only a few days before, by over 5 miles per hour.

There was an outcry when Temple put the 1,000 c.c. hour record to 101.98 m.p.h., but now this speed has almost been equalled by a machine of half the size. Terrific flying kilometre speeds are all very well, but there is something very convincing in the hour record. It is sheer design, workmanship and riding which win a record of this type, and the Spring-Denly-Norton combination may well feel proud.
