Me and Harry went to Te Aroha this weekend to have a look at an annual motor show they have. It was a good outing for the Renaults clocking up 203 miles there and back and not missing a beat.
Most interesting vehicle was the Darracq. This vehicle has been restored and it is one that has taken part in the Grand Prix of 1906. The driver, Anne Thompson, is a classy lady that can put the Darracq side ways on a race track. Asked how fast it was she replied that recently in England she passed an Austin Healey that was clocked at a 105 mph. It has a 14.25 liter 4 cylinder engine with twin spark. What is new today? Mechanical brakes on the rear wheels only.
