An important trial

75 years ago  I have been reminded that it was 75 years ago this month that an important trial took place, which is usually regarded as having set the seal to the fame of the Laurence Pomeroy-designed 20 h.p.

We saw a beaded-edge-shod "8/18" Talbot two-seater and a Charron-Laycock two-seater recently, and encountered a "hip-bath" Gwynne Eight in Chiswick.
