We consider it well worth-while (in view of the recent increase in the cost of petrol) to dispel the bogey in the minds of many people that “sports” cars are expensive to maintain, particularly as regards petrol consumption—this is most definitely an erroneous impression at any rate as far as the Frazer Nash is concerned, even remembering its outstanding hill-climbing abilities, amazing acceleration and high maximum speed. Figures obtained by us during the above mentioned events will doubtless be of interest.
Fully equipped, the Alpine car averaged 35 m.p.g., maintaining a strict schedule under extremely difficult conditions.
In the Tourist Trophy race the Frazer Nash ran stripped, with the exception of the rear wings, and averaged 29‘m.p.g. for the race.
In the M.C.C. One Hour High Speed Trial at Brooklands, the Alpine T.T. Frazer Nash averaged 24 m.p.g. fully equipped for the road.
We should very much like to congratulate the makers of S.U. carburetters (fitted to the Alpine-T.T. Frazer Nash, and to all our cars as standard) because there is no doubt these carburetters played an important part in obtaining such excellent petrol consumption figures under abnormal conditions.
