The most wonderful racing feat which has ever been accomplished by the driver of any car was the recordbreaking run made by Captain Malcolm Campbell, on Thursday the 25th. of last month. Driving his 350 h.p. twelve-cylinder Sunbeam, on Pendine Sands, under unfavourable conditions of both wind and course, with the sands so soft that, on several occasions, they acted on the car like most effective brakes, with wet sand being thrown into his face all the time, he averaged, over runs in both directions, the remarkable speed of 146.16 m.p.h., constituting a world’s record.
