Wolseley Hornet Specials no.39

By January 28, 2019 Triple M corner

GX 8765 is a 1932 London registered Wolseley Hornet EW Daytona Special. The car is being driven here by F.S. Hutchens who at that time was the Sales Manager for Eustace Watkins (as well as being secretary of the Hornet Car Club) and who had seen plenty of competitive success at Brooklands and elsewhere driving his employer’s products.  Here, he is seen competing at the Brighton Speed Trials of 1932 and was to follow this up in January of 1933 by taking part in the Monte Carlo Rally, also in GX 8765.
