Once again Coy’s was an overwhelming experience, but this year for me it was the year for the Talbots.
As an ex-owner of one of the 1932 Alpine team cars I have been disappointed that Talbots have never been as competitive in historic race meetings as their illustrious past deserves. Now Messrs Schumacher, Burnett and Bradfield have revived the marque and shown what the cars can do.
Great driving and road-holding on Saturday’s streaming wet track was supplemented by a clearcut winning performance in dry conditions on Sunday. This suggests power output that would have brought a happy smile to the face of Georges Roesch had he been able to see it.
I am yours etc,
