1911: “Regardez, les Anglais. Qu’ils sont fantastiques!”

Just added to 1911 is a jolly tale of English riders crossing La Manche for a French hillclimb where they flew the flag against opposition including a 2.6-litre X-four. If you can’t be bothered to trawl through the preceding yarns wordsearch ‘Gometz’. Enjoy.

“A racing monster at the Gometz-le-Châtel hill-climb: Meuriot and the peculiar design of four-cylinder Rene-Gillet machine.”
