About quiz #377: 1923 Newton (Ceirano) Brooklands

1923 newton_brooklands_470
Well this was one of those cars that you either know or never haVE heard about.  The car that was subject of  quiz 377 turned up at a most pleasant 'strawberries & bubbles' event at Bicester Heritage airfield

It is the 1100 cc 1923 Newton 200 miles Brooklands racer as developped by Noel Newton. You can read the various knowledgeable additions about the car from the comments of last week's competitors. We particularly liked the comments by Gerry Barrett. Why? As he explained about the name and second name of the car and as you know our 'What is it?" quiz is in fact about namegiving. Gerry added that the car was only to become the 1923 Newton - Ceirano when Newton with business partner Bennet became importers for Ceirano cars. This fits nicely with the the remarks of  Frazer Sloan  son of one of the former owners and Ceirano connoisseur Nick Sloan, who explained us that there are virtually  no Ceirano parts on the car.
Congratulations Gerry! Next week a new chance. Or start chewing on this weekend's post-war quiz car..!
