DEATH OF E. A. ELDRIDGE

We regret to announce the death of Ernest A. Eldridge, at one time holder of the Land Speed Record on the famous old Fiat Mephistopheles. Mr. Eldridge had several spectacular accidents in the course of his racing career, notably when his Miller car overturned at Montlhery some years ago. Except for taking part in occasional long-distance attempts on records in conjunction with his friend George Eyston, Eldridge of late years devoted himself principally to tuning and

designing, and was responsible for the lay-out of the front drive car ” Speed of the Wind ” on which Eyston put up no less than fifteen world’s records only a month ago at Salt Lake, Utah.

His sudden and untimely death from pneumonia was a great shock to his many friends, and his funeral which took place on the 29th October, was attended by many of those who had been associated with him on his record-breaking attempts.
