LADIES’ LAP RECORD BATTLE

Some rem:ILI:able performances were achieved at 13rooklands last month in a duel between Mrs. K. Petre (Delage) and Mrs. Stewart (Derby) for the honour of holding the Ladies’ Lap Record.

In practice for their ” Match Race ” at the August Bank Holiday Meeting Mrs. Stewart improved on Mrs. Petre’s previous record Of 129.58 m.p.h. by covering a lap at 130.17 m.p.h. The same afternoon, however, Mrs. Petre regained the coveted record by clocking a marvellous lap at 134.75 m.p.h.

The match race saw no improvement on this figure, but on the following day Mrs. Stewart went out once more and eclipsed all previous figures by covering a lap in 1 minute 13.27 seconds at a speed of 135.95 m.p.h. There the matter rests at the moment. Mrs. Petre cannot hope to beat this speed with the old Delage, and until she can secure the use of a faster machine the last word will remain with Mrs. Stewart. The Derby, incidentally, has been left at

Brooklands, and there is little doubt that the fastest woman driver in the world can still further improve on her present record.
