COMMENT: LETTERS; Younger models can’t take the pace

I can’t blame Quentin Bell for tagging along with the London to Brighton Veteran Car Run, but someone should tell him that the event is for cars made before 1905. His 1930s Austin Seven doesn’t qualify as a legitimate entrant. A veteran car would have completed the run. He must have felt that bodily refreshment was more important than getting to the coast. A failed PR stunt if ever there was one!
