LEWES SPEED TRIALS

LEWES was a chilly but dry spot on June 17th. Ned Lewis made fastest time of the day, handling Baron’s ” 2.3 ” Bugatti in most expert and determined mannner. Lycett had wretched luck, when, after a noticeably rapid start, even for the 8-litre Bentley, a gear selector :lambed, and it proved impossible to move the gear-lever. McKervie did well with his blue 41-litre Bentley and Monkhouse was really rapid with Connell’s Darracq. Eason Gibson drove a new, Singer-engined 11-litre H.R.G. and Miss Wilby had the big Atalanta, with 7-litre V12 Lincoln engine. Symond’s R-type M.G. gradually misfired less and less until it went quite fast, and MacLachlan did his usual fast, if snaky runs in the Austin. Appleton lost something vital, which eventually turned out to be the complete head of a valve and was blown out through the exhaust pipe of the Appleton-Special, after one

very fast run, and A. D. Whitworth had a nasty moment when the offset, white Riley hit the bank beyond the finish and, the driver braking, spun completely round in the road amid clouds of rubber smoke. The Meadows-engined StaffordSpecial, which is for sale at 1,120, motored very nicely, and Mortimer was good with the Alta. RESULTS
