In view of the entry of a team of Chrysler-engined Cunninghams for Le Mans, the following extract which we found in Dr JD Benjafield’s “The Bentleys at Le Mans,” relating to the 1929 race, may be noted : “One of the more impressive facts in the race was the very regular running of the Chryslers, nor were they slow, and had it not been for some petrol tank troubles they met with on the Sunday morning, there is no doubt but that they would have interrupted the Bentley pattern.”

From a reader’s letter in the Daily Express : “The Government could give a lead to road safety by removing the 75 per cent purchase tax on brake linings . . . I know of one vintage car with the brakes lined with old lino !”

Which only goes to show how well-cooled and generally efficient vintage car brakes are !

The Incorporated Society of Auctioneers and Landed Property Agents have formed a car club known as the Incorporated Auctioneers CC. The club has now received RAC recognition. The Hon Secretary is : WG Field, 7 Gayton Crescent, N.W.3 (Hampstead 3526).
