History          
Year 1934
Delivered new to Tony Law in Jan 1935, campaigned by Tony in the next two seasons at many of Britain's premier events, including Brooklands. Sold to A.J. Wicke in 1937, who continued to campaign the car until the outbreak of WWII. Imported into Rhodesia in 1953 by E.J.l. Griffiths of Salisbury, who owned the car untill he passed away in 1989. Used extensively in Rhodesia in Hill Climbs, speed trails and rallies. The car was then acquired by another owner in what had now become Zimbabwe and stored, together with Mr. Hampton's (Griffiths changed his name by deed poll to Hampton) Derby Bentley, until it was returned to England in 2001 and auctioned by Coys later that year. Fitted with a TR2 engine.
