Monica Whincop

I am deeply saddened to hear Monica Whincop has died, but peacefully in her sleep after a long illness.

When I knew her she had her 1924 A7 Chummy ‘Abdul the Damned’ and built the GN-based sprint car ‘Chatterbox’. After marrying A C (‘Twink’) Whincop she drove his Bugattis at Lewes and Prescott, and was a regular official at Bugatti OC events. In post-war years she owned a Fiat Ballila and her immaculate 1100cc HRG ‘Hergi’, which was taken to her funeral.
