JENKINS GETS BACK THREE RECORDS

Soon after John Cobb and his NapierRailton returned to England from Utah, Ab Jenkins went out to see what he could do about regaining some of his lost records. He drove a Duesenburg ” Union Special,” and the first record to fall was the coveted World’s One Flour, which he took at 152.145 m.p.h. He followed this up with the 200 miles and 500 kilometres, but then a bearing ran on the Duesenberg and he had to stop. Official confirmation has not been received of the records at the time of writing, but here are the figures claimed 1 hour 152,145 m.p.h. (Napier-Railton 152,116 m.p.h.) 200 tulles 161.721 m.p.h. (Napler-Railton 14(1.50 m.p.h.) 500 kms. 151.310 m.p.h. (Napler-Railton 140.80 m.p.h.)
