In reply to the question raised by your correspondent Mr. Worthington-Williams in the April issue about a possible family connection between Gustav Hamel and the one and only Hammel car that completed the Brighton run in 1954, I would like to strangle any myth in birth.
The Hammel car was a one-off built in the Copenhagen works of A. F. Hammel—spelt with double M—and the spelling alone precludes any connection.
