Correct solutions polled 56 per cent. of the total entry, which shows that our readers are well up to the racing history of the last ten years. A hint was given as to the car’s Continental origin by the single-seater Maserati parked in the background.
The Alta entries comprised 25 per cent. of the total, but the alternatives were by no means exhausted with this make. In smaller numbers various people put forward the following suggestions : AlfaRomeo, Alvis, Austin, B.N.C., Delage, Felix Scrivin, Fiat, Maserati, M.G., Napier, Squire, Sunbeam, Thomas, and Voisin.
