THE LONDON-GLOUCESTER TRIAL

RECORD ENTRY AND PERFECT ORGANISATION ENSURE SUCCESS OF THE N.W.L.M.C.'s ANNUAL TRIAL THE North West London Motor Club deserve every success with their annual London to Gloucester Trial.

Pen-y-Bryn is a tricky hill with three-quarters of a mile of slippery surface, which eaussd four failures. Treveriog was not troublesome and the whole entry sailed up, and Glynceiriog stopped only one car, though it had some nasty bends. The...

England and India

Lieut. B. Gordon Graham, R.I.N.V.R., recalls the cars he used before the war in Ceylon, and on home leave in England. I regret that I cannot lay claim to having begun my motoring career at some phenomenally early age, although the interest and keenness has always been there. Nor can I claim to having owned any very extraordinary motor-cars – except my own home-built "special"! So this is just the...

After Mutton came Quarhouse, a straight-forward hill with an unpleasant

surface of leaves and another shelving right-hand bend on which Hutchison's Ford was brought to a standstill. N. G. Watson (Frazer-Nash) and Denis Evans (Magnette) were very neat at this point, and Evans also went very quickly over Ham Mill's rough surface, which caused nasty things to happen to the transmission of both W. L. Jackson's FrazerNash and M. Chambers' Vauxhall. Next on the list was...

ALL IS NOT GOLD " " DRY WEATHER MAKES THE " GLOUCESTER " HILLS EASY, BUT THE BISMORE ACCELERATION TEST CAUSES MANY FAILURES. AFEW years ago the London to Gloucester .Trial had a reputation of the most fearsome character, its route meandering up and down the muddy Cotswolds to such an extent that the gaining of a premier award was a real test of both car and driver. Note the word "muddy," for it...

THE "LONDON-GLOUCESTER"

THE twenty-first trial of this series, which took place on the 12th of last month, was chiefly of interest in showing that, although cars have improved in the last few years, the standard of driving has not been raised. In fact, a large proportion of the entry showed a lack of knowledge of the requirements of trials work which was surprising. It is said that we live and learn, but in some cases...
