Report on Problem No. 14.

The question of whether you recognised the car in Problem No. 14 depended largely on the length of your acquaintance with Brooklands racing. To many the car was obviously the Charron-Laycock, to others it was-well, the list of alternatives will follow in due course. This car was a regular competitor at the Track about a decade ago, in the days when B.A.R.C. races finished in the Finishing Straight. The first correct solution to be opened was that submitted by Mr. Paul Bird,

8, Harwarde Court, London, N.W.6.

to whom we have sent on a cheque for one guinea.

The number of correct solutions polled only to per cent. of the total entry, which shows that a photograph does not necessarily have to be taken from an unusual angle in order to ” fox ” people. By far the largest number of competitors wrote “Morris” on their entry forms. Next came Charron Laycock and Gwynne, closely followed by Hillman and Wolseley. Other makes which were suggested in varying quantities were Alfa-Romeo, Alta, Amilcar, Austin, Crouch, Deemster,

D.F.P., Duesen berg, Fiat, Halford, Horstman, Jackson, M.G., Napier, Opel, Sunbeam, Talbot and Vulcan.

The one on this page is likely to be a teaser. Anyway, you are given a carte blanche view of the car, engine included. Study it long and closely. You may spot some vital clue which clears the whole thing up, and leaves you the only one to have guessed correctly. It will be interesting to see how many people get it right !

Rules for ProbTem No. 15.

1. Write your name and address and solution in block letters, and send it to MOTOR SPORT (1929), Ltd., 39, Victoria Street, London, S.W.I, in a sealed envelope, marked ” Competition.”

2. Entries must reach this office not later than the first post, July 13th, and a prize of one guinea will be awarded to the sender of the first correct solution opened on that day.

3. More than one entry may be included in one envelope.

4. No letter must be sent with the entry.

5. Any alterations or defacements on the entry will automatically disqualify the entrant.

6. The result will be published in our August issue.

7. Employees of MOTOR SPORT (1929), Ltd., are not eligible to compete.

Send Us Your Picture Puzzle!

A prize of half-a-guinea is offered every month for the photograph used in this competition. The picture on this page was submitted by Mr. Robert A. Waddy, t8, Seafield Road, Hove, Sussex, to whom we have sent a cheque for that amount.

If you have a photograph in your collection which you think would puzzle readers, let us have a look at it. It may be worth half-a-guinea! A modern sports car taken from an unusual angle, an old sports car, little known, or an old type of racing car-they all offer scope for different puzzles.

Incidentally, photographs submitted must be actual photographic prints, not cuttings from newspapers, from which it is impossible to make printing blocks.
