CHATEAU-THIERRY HILL CLIMB

CHATEAU-THIERRY HILL CLIMB

pOOR weather conditions failed to affect the Chateau-Thierry which was run off before a large crowd and produced many fine performances. Once more the fastest time of the whole event was put up by a motorcyclist, Georges Motmeret, on a 1,000 c.c. KoehlerEscoffier. In the car classes the best time was put up by Druck (2 litre Bugatti) at an average speed of 63.5 m.p.h.,

which was also a new record in the 2 litre class.

Giraud-Cabantons, on an 1,100 c.c. Caban, was second in the general classification, and set up a new 1,100 c.c. record for the course. Sommer, on the Chrysler which he drove in the Paris-Nice, beat the existing 5 litre sports car record, while Mary on a Ballot, another Paris-Nice competitor, won the 2 litre sports class.

Robert Senechal's big Minerva put up a new record in the 8 litre class, though a long way behind Druck's new 2 litre record. Rosengarts gained two firsts in the hands of Jacob and Simon respectively. At the end a demonstration of fast commercial vehicles was given by Colin on a Saurer, and Lamberjack, on a Saurer-Diesel, thus finishing off a well run event.
