Among the many stunning carsattracting
interest on New Year’s Day was an eye catching
1922 AC with Brooklands’ provenance
that has recently been acquired by the Brooklands
Motor Company. Proprietor Steve Gray explained:
“Our polished aluminium car left the Ferry Works
factory in 1922. It has its original body, chassis,
engine and gearbox/axle and is a matching numbers
car. AC Cars provided a 70mph
Brooklands certificate for this model after the
world records set in 1922.
It has the Anzani1,500cc engine, rear-only brakes,
artillery wheels and a lightweight sports body
with racing screen.
This is the only 1922 sports model surviving and
is featured in the AC heritage publication by
Simon Taylor and Peter Burn. The car will be on
display and used in Brooklands and VSCC events.
It was owned in the 1990s by David Brock-Jest
and competed in Monte Carlo events. Kind
thanks to Bill Bately who allowed us to purchase
it from his private collection.”
