Cobb and Alvis

Sir, With reference to your article in Motor Sport. I did not say in my book that my husband and I drove in the 1930 "Double Twelve" at Brooklands.

Charge of the light brigadeIt wasn't all about Outer Circuit monsters: one endurance event proved that small cars could stay the course too Long-distance races at Brooklands were a popular feature as well-established events in the 1920s and '30s, although before the war in 1908 a 100-mile race had been a notable contest, even if it was unfortunately marred by a fatal accident. While avoiding a...
