VERS LE BOUT!

VERS LE BOUT! COLD AND ICE MAKE THE TWELFTH MONTE CARLO RALLY• THE MOST STRENUOUS EVER HELD. THIS year, as on previous occasions Athens was the most distant, and therefore the most highly marked of the starting places for the Monte Carlo Rally. Fifteen starters presented themselves, but the going was too hard for nearly all of them. The last to give up was Rupert Riley, who had successfully...

The cars of "Archie" Frazer-Nash

Described to the Editor in a recent interview. "Archie" Frazer-Nash, M.I.Mech.E., well known in motoring circles as the "N" of G.N., subsequently achieved fame in other spheres of engineering and served his country well in respect of gun-turrets for tanks and aircraft and other projects of this nature.

Aston Hill

Sir, Almost every account written of the origin of the name Aston Martin (originally with a hyphen) links Lionel Martin with the "Aston Clinton Hill-Climb", where he is attributed with many successes on one of his 10hp Singers. In your piece A Family's Cars (Motor Sport, December 1987), there are two references to "Aston Clinton". Every contemporary reference I have seen, until at least 1922,...
