Matters of moment

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...
