In the VEV section of the February issue, mention is made of a mysterious single-seater Brescia Bugatti. This car was discovered by me in Gerrards Cross last October. It had been re-stroked, not linered down, to 1,100 cc. It had practised once only at Brooklands, in 1929, with a chain-driven supercharger, driven by its first and only owner, who said that the car reached 100 mph, and that it had not failed mechanically.
The owner was then posted to India, in 1929, and the car was dismantled, put in the loft, and never reassembled. The full story will appear in Bugantics.
Could any of your readers help with an early picture of my T46 Bugatti, Registration No RB4, which was owned by Cynthia Turner in Scarborough for 30 years, Any help will be much appreciated.
