Last June this 1931 Eustace Watkins Wolseley Hornet Special (GP 7373) was sold via an internet auction site. The photograph of the Hornet seen here was taken in its 50+ plus year resting place which looks to be a farm outbuilding. Few early CF3 versions of the Hornet survive and this one looks remarkably complete. If the new owner reads this please contact email@example.com

The second International Relay Race was held at the Brooklands circuit in 1932. The winning team of three Hornets was made-up of two 1932 Eustace Watkins Daytona Specials and an earlier 1931 Eustace Watkins International model. The International was driven by Edward Erith who is seen here in the same car as he drove that day – GO 6468. In May of that year Erith took his Hornet to Lewes in Sussex having entered the annual speed trials on the downs. Alongside Erith in this paddock shot is a late 1931 Kent registered Swallow Hornet Special while yet more Hornets await their turn behind the leading duo. (LAT Motor Sport negative)
