1912 Brooklands Class C

1912 Brooklands Class C Record – 2 nd August Map Key 14 Cecil Bianchi in the driving seat photographed with Hubert Woods to his right. Brooklands introduced new capacity rated classes in 1912, Crossley were in a position to contest class C and so the Crossley team travelled down to Brooklands in early August to establish the new Class “C” Brooklands records with the 15 hp. Class C cars were limited to a maximum capacity of 2458cc and a maximum weight of 1600 lbs with driver. Bianchi as usual drove the 15 hp and his record speeds were as follows: Half Mile One Mile Kilometre Ten Lap Average 73.8 mph 73.29 mph 73.51 mph 72.46 mph `

1912 Pateley Bridge 10th August Map Key 15 Sunbeam Coupe de Auto with Coatalen at the wheel at Pateley Bridge As usual Yorkshire Automobile Club Held the Pateley Bridge hill climb, on the day Coatalen's GP winning Coupe de Auto Sunbeam and Higginson's Great 80 hp La Buire tied for Fastest Time of the Day. Woods 20 hp Crossley did not attend, but would have made interesting competition for those who did, having beaten the la Buire more than once previously and was to beat both Coatalen's and another works GP Sunbeam before the month was out. Woods had previously failed to start on a technicality in the 1911 Pateley Bridge event having not weighed in on time, so it is easy to surmise that he had issues with the organisers which may have discouraged him from entering the Crossley works cars in 1912. Of the nineteen runners in the open class the 15hp Straker-Squire of Mr R. H. Witchell won, with the 15 hp Crossley entered by W. M. Letts driven by Bianchi coming second. `
