SUNBEAM REGISTER SANDHURST RALLY (Sept. 20th)
Hun as efficiently as ever by Officer-Cadets of the R.M.A. Motor Sports Club. the Sunbeam Register Rally at the Royal Military Academy. Sandhurst, saw a straight fight in the driving tests between Roesch Talbot and Wolverhampton Sunbeam ears. Although the former were outnumbered, T. J. Mockeridge won first prize in his smart 1937 Talbot 105 saloon, watched by Georges Roesch, its designer. The runners-up were W. G. Halliday’s 1930 Sunbeam Twenty and B. Burgess driving R. C. Carter’s much-travelled Sunbeam Sixteen saloon. The Concours d’Elegance, judged for appearance, comfort and equipment by G. B. Millard-Thompson, 13.Se., A.Inst.P., A.M.1.E.E.., was a close thing between C. F. South’s 1913 12/16 Sunbeam, E. May’s healthy-sounding 1934 Speed Twenty Sunbeam and Mockeridge’s Talbot, but again it was the Talbot which scored. No doubt the Sunbeams will be keen to avenge their defeat next year.
