Mr. C. G. Vokes, director of C. G. Vokes Ltd., the well known motor accessory manufacturers of 95-97 Lower Richmond Road, Putney, London, S.W.15, has written suggesting the formation of a Lagonda Car Club.

In a letter to MOTOR SPORT he says: " Judging by the fair number of entries of Lagonda car owners in the various rallies and sporting events of the year, it would seem that there would be quite a considerable measure of support forthcoming for a Lagonda Car Club."

Mr. Vokes adds that as a Lagonda owner he would be only too pleased to assist in the formation of such a club with a view to organising it on modem lines, and he would be glad to receive the names and addresses of those who would be willing to belong. Those Lagonda owners who would be willing to serve on a temporary informal committee, pending complete formation, are asked to get in touch with Mr. Vokes at the above address.
