A LUNCHEON TO SEAMAN
On Tuesday, September 27th, the R.A.C. will give a luncheon in honour of R. J. B. Seaman, in recognition of his great victory in the German Grand Prix, which he won for Mercedes Benz at 80.61 m.p.h. over 22 laps, or 3114 miles of the Nurburg Ring. Seaman also put up the fastest race lap, at 83.71 m.p.h. He is the second Englishman to win a classic Continental G. P. race—the late Sir Henry Segrave won for Sunbeam at Tours fifteen years ago. We know that Seaman will appreciate this recognition of the R.A.C. of his latest achievement in a fine driving career and we know that all who meet him at the luncheon will be pleased that this country has such a
modest, typically English young man for a Continental ambassador—but Dick Seaman deserves more than one luncheon from us. The date of September 27th indicates that the Mercedes-Benz team will definitely compete in our own Grand Prix on October 1st.
