What Do You Know About Cars ?
Report on Problem No. 4. THE photograph appearing in our last issue of MOTOR SPoRT caused more difficulty than any of the previous competitions. Actually, only 26% of the entries received were correct, namely, the 3 litre Alfa Romeo raced by Lanfranchi at Brooklands some years ago. The first to be opened on June 15th was that submitted by : A. H. Habberfield-Short, North Lodge,
St. George’s Hill, Weybridge.
to whom we have sent a cheque for one guinea.
Vauxhall was a much-favoured, make, and others with many adherents were Sunbeam, Riley, Miller, 0.M., Fiat and Arab. One competitor decided that we had published a ” mirror-image ” of an Arab. If this were so, of course, the cars would be starting in the reverse direction at Brooklands and the Alvis standing next to the Alfa Romeo would have left-hand steering ! The variety of makes suggested was
really astounding, and demonstrated a wide divergence of opinion. Here are some of the solutions : Peugeot, Invicta, Duesenberg, Hispano-Suiza, Lancia, Frazer Nash, Salmson, Hortsmann, Matto, Bentley, Vernon Special and Alvis.
