C.F.TEMPLE COVERS 100 MILES in the HOUR.
. C. P. Temple put up a most remarkable record at Montlbery on September 7th, by covering 101.98 miles in the hour during a non-stop, no-trouble run. The machine he used was a 996 c.c. O.E.C. Temple-Anzani, built specially for him by the Osborne Engineering Co. of Gosport.
It is interesting to note that one of the new Constantinesco carburettors was used in this record. For some time past Temple has been basy with attempts on this record, and on several occasions he came quite neat to success, but bad luck has dogged him when previous efforts were made.
C. F. Temple is one of the most prominent speed riders whose performances at Brooklands and elsewhere have always attracted considerable attention, and we add our congratulations to those he has already received on making a historical achievement on the track.
