NEW RECORD FOR HEAVY-OIL CARS.
Ever since G. E. T. Eyston broke the record for heavy-oil engined cars, it has been expected that a challenge would come from America. The last American record was just over 100 m.p.h., made by Cumings with a specially built car. On two occasions since then the record has been raised by Eyston, his highest speed being 120 m.p.h.
Now comes the news that Dave Evans has beaten this figure with a speed of 125.065 m.p.h. for one mile, flying start.
