I have been a very satisfied reader of MOTOR SPORT for nearly 10 years and I have rarely been strongly opposed to any of your views. Now, however, I must take you up on your editorial in the January 1964 issue. You are able to watch (and hear!) RollsRoyce cars on the road, drive some models from time to time, and read detailed descriptions of their technical features, and, I imagine, from these assess their performance. Even so you say in your Editorial that you cannot comment accurately on their claim to make the Best Car in the World.
However, you say in the same Editorial that you are willing to acknowledge the superiority of their engines in the air.
I suggest consideration of the advance designs of engines now being developed and built by Bristol Siddeley for such aircraft as the Vulcan Bomber, the TSR 2 Strike/Reconnaissance aircraft, the Concorde Supersonic airliner (jointly with SNECMA of France), as well as the engines for the revolutionary Hawker P.1127 and P.1154, VTOL fighters, will leave you in similar doubt about superiority in the air.
