AN ECHO OF THE MONTE CARLO
THERE was a remarkable sequel to the performance of Donald Healey’s Triumph car in the Monte Carlo Rally. Certain French competitors, it appears, refused to credit that the speed in the tests could be achieved by a car of
this capacity, and lodged a protest alleging that the engine was not of the size stated. In accordance with the regulations the engines of all the successful cars were measured by the Rally authorities, and Healey’s engine was found to be entirely
in order, being in fact a standard type.
The protest, in an event which is primarily of a sporting nature, was unfortunate but it can also be considered as a foreign tribute to the performance of this British light car.
