Sir,

Further to the letter from Robt E Newell in the issue of Motor Sport for October re Sqn/Ldr JRM Boothby and the various people who make nasty remarks about the Austin Seven, may I suggest that it is only necessary to look around a “Rembrandt ” gathering to see how important is the role played by the Seven in the education of the real motorist.

Surely it is obvious that the Austin Seven has provided an introduction to “real” motoring for the aspiring enthusiast for nearly a quarter of a century, and in the shape of such cars as the Gordon Bretell single-seater will continue to do so for many years to come. I am surprised at the lack of comment on the excellent suggestions by Holland Birkett for “750” competition after the war.

Perhaps the hosts of enthusiasts building “750” specials are not interested in competition motoring.

I am, Yours, etc.

A Rumfitt,  Oxhey, Herts.
