Obituary

It was with a sense of sheick that we heard that Sam Collier had crashed fatally during tlw Watkins Glen sportsear race. Apparently he left the road at a bend aormally safe up to 90 m.p.h. and his Ferrari turned end-over-end. Collier was wearing a safety-belt, but this broke and he received injuries tlutt proved fatal.

Sam Collier partnered his brother Miles Collier at Le Maas this year in the Cadillac which finished tenth. He was one of the founders of the Automobile Racing Club of America, competed in the1939 Alpine Trial, and was founder of the concern of Motor Sport, Inc., sole American importers of M.G. cars. It was at the wheel of M.G. cars that Sam was so frequently placed in those American race meetings for sports cars that have been so popular slime the war. He also finished second at Bridgettampton this year, driving Briggs Cunningham’s Ferrari. Only recently, Sam Collier had written a long article on the Cadillac venture in the last Le Mans race, •which was published in Road and Track. Le Mans, 1931, will not be the samewithout hint.
