In reply to Mr. Neve’s letter, the ex-Cyril Paul Beardmore was owned for a short time by my grandfather, George Hepworth. He bought the car from Cyril Paul around 1926 and raced it at Southport and in speed events in the Yorkshire area. The car was very fast in acceleration but was always troubled by the Morse timing chain, which jumped a cog at peak revs. I believe this problem was overcome by fitting a roller chain. The car was sold around 1928.
