A FAMILY TEAM
It is unusual, to say the least of it, for three members of a family to take the same interest in motoring events, but the success of Miss Doreen Evans and her two brothers, Denis and Kenneth,
should encourage more ventures of this sort. All the members of the team drive M.G. Midgets, and have numerous successes to their credit. Miss Doreen Evans won the Ladies Cup in the London
Gloucester this year and the Ladies Award at the J.C.C. Brooklands Rally, and with her brother, ” Ka,” was a member of the team which were the runners-up for the team prize in the Gloucester. The team have also won three more ” golds ” on the LondonEdinburgh trial.
Denis Evans and his brother Kenneth are directors of the Bellevue Garage, Ltd., and their firm has had some striking successes in the preparation of M.G.s for racing and reliability trials, and the supercharged 750 c.c. car driven by Mr. D. N. Letts, which won the 1st Walton Sprint Handicap this year at a speed of 92.78 m.p.h., and also took the 850 c.c. Racing Class at Shelsley, with the remarkable time of 45 4/5 secs., was tuned by their firm. They also prepared the K.3 Magnette for Mr. P. L. Donkin, which put up very good performances in both the Mannin Beg Race and the B.E. Trophy.
Mr. Kenneth Evans, who last year won two mountain races on M.G. cars, has acquired one of the latest” Q “type supercharged M.G. Midgets, and will drive it in the major events for the remainder of the season.
