Model Renault




Please find enclosed photo, which may he suitable for showing in MOTOR SPORT, it shows my 5-year-old son driving his copy of a 1910 AX Renault car I made for him.

The car is powered by two 12-volt fan-heater motors driving through a 30:1 gearbox with a 12-volt car battery under the bonnet. This gives a speed of about 2 m.p.h. and 6-7 hours’ running time.
