Lemon-Burton’s 3.1 litre supercharged Grand Prix Bugatti, and R. J. Munday’s 2.7-litre Diesel-engined Thomas Special. Visitors to The Motor Show will find this meeting a pleasant change from Olympian crowds.


Count Trossi’s astounding new racing car, which has a radial engine at the front of the chassis, has been most carefully designed, and is expected to give a good account of itself when properly tuned-up. The unusual form of engine is supercharged with two M.160-type Zoller compressors, which give a swept-volume of 25,000 litres per minute when running at maximum speed. On this basis the engine may be expected to develop considerably more than 300 b.h.p. The compressors were supplied by Messrs. M. A. McEvoy, Ltd., of Derby.
