It produced many thrills. C. F. Temple, on his British-Anzani engined Montgomery, accomplished one of the best performances of his track career, by winning the five lap scratch race for unlimited machines in record...
In this interesting contribution L. S. Daniels very convincingly states the case for the old "90" and "105" Talbots, as modified by Fox & Nicholl. Before we asked him to write of "Talbots he has owned," we had experience of his present car, and were very favourably impressed, not only with its general performance, but with the owner's skilful handling of it. Mr. Daniels was for a time with...
