. WILAT PRICE ALTA. ?

Sir,

I think your reference to the ” crawling ” Alta in your report, of the British Grand Prix is very unfair. The Alta’s best lap time of 1 min. 59 sec. compares with that of Parnell’s B.R.M. of I loin.

53 see. The latter’s driving ability surely accounts for most of this difference, which is less Mut the seven seconds between Farina’s fastest lap and that of the B.R.M.

Given a fraction of the B.R.M.’s financial support, I am quite sure an eight-eylinder Alta could have been produced to be up amongst the leaders, given a front-rank driver. After all Stirling Moss has lapped in 1 min. .58.5 see. with an imblown Alta engine giving not-I:melt more than half tine power of Kelly’s, whose car incidentally was running-in a new set of pistons. I am, Yours, etc.,

Se.nd. C. E. Tavton.
