Wolseley Hornet Specials no.88

By March 25, 2024Triple M corner

The North West London Motor Club were the organisors of their Lawrence Cup Trial, which in the late Thirties was held on MOD land at Bagshot Heath, Surrey. This photo of a 1933 Wolseley Hornet Special (AXC 181 driver unknown) was taken on 20th May 1939 and shows the car cresting a climb with just a solitary marshall in attendance. Had this been a scene from a trial held just a few years earlier huge crowds would have lined the course. However, with war imminent, controversial trial regulation changes in place, public appetite for these events had rapidly faded.  (LAT Plate C17330 – Courtesy of Motorsport Images)
