German Grand Prix Entries.

Among British entries in the German Grand Prix to be held at the Nurberg Ring are two supercharged Frazer-Nashes to be driven by H. J. Aldington and A. P. F. Pane, who last year performed so well at Brooklands on a supercharged Salmson, and who has now got one of the latest Frazer-Nashs. His car is the first of the present type O.H.V. cars to have a blower, and the whole engine is specially modified for this. The Powerplus supercharger is chain driven from the front of the crankcase and mounted alongside the cylinder block, giving a very short induction pipe. The car was entered for the Whitsun meeting, but as it was not run in, he wisely refrained from running it. Aldington’s car will be of the same type. Both drivers are afterwards running in the Alpine Trial, an event for which a Frazer-Nash should be particularly suitable owing to its high power.. weight ratio and extreme handiness on twisty roads.
