Wolseley Hornet Specials no.51

By November 1, 2020Triple M corner

Cynthia Labouchere‘s name can be found on many rally and concours event entry lists during the early thirties. Although she drove a Singer Nine in 1934, she very actively campaigned a 1932 E.W. Hornet Special throughout the latter half of the 1932 and 1933 driving seasons. Her first recorded event in 1933 was the Monte Carlo Rally, where she started from John o’ Groats’, although sadly failing to finish. This LAT Autocar photoscan shows her Hornet, GY 3131 being inspected prior to the start of the rally, possibly at the Eustace Watkins premises in Chelsea, SW3. (Photo courtesy of Motorsport Images).
