It is not without humour that the organisers of the Vintage Revival Montlhery are offering another event at the Chateau de Lantilly in the heart of the Nivernais region on 25th and 26th of June. Their slogan is "Saucisson sec, red plonk and Charentaises (the felt tartan slippers)". It sets the spirit in which the participants are invited to bring the most improbable cyclecars and infernal machines to compete in a race of slowth and other challenges under the watchful eye of Lord Ramillon, the host of the event on the Saturday and test their navigation skills in amphibious vehicles at the Lake of Baye on the Sunday. By now, you might have guessed that it is inspired by the now famous British event and is a friendly and satirical wink to the Goodwood and Chantilly festivals. Many of the original creators will actually cross the channel and attend in support of the first international edition.

The remains of a cyclecar shown in last week's Quiz 418 were not very easy to recognise. The big 'giveaway' in this case was of course the 'Brescia' like radiator. Long time visitors may remember the TB Radiator Mystery. We had loads of response back then, but it must be said that this earlier photo had the TB logo showing which is quite helpful... The project showing last week was photographed years ago by Michael Ware. He had to climb on top of the office in the Black Country Living Museum, in Dudley,UK. Quite possible it's gone now. And maybe even on wheels again! Who knows?
We had four competitors who all came up with the correct make and lost of useful information. Including the wonderful postcard sent by competitor Luc 'tricycle' Rijckaert. Thanks a lot for sharing Luc! However neither Luc nor Robbie Marenzi, nor Graham Arrondelle are winners. These three gave good but general information regarding all TB cyclecars. While our question always is which specific car is pictured. Again the radiator was a giveaway. It is clearly not a fake but a watercooling radiator. So the TB project must have had the Blackburn or British Anzani engine. So it was built in or after 1921. Only Anders Svenfelt was courageous enough to pinpoint the car based on this simple feature. By doing so he is not only winner of the quiz but also a new jurymember. This was his third win since 2006! Congratulations Anders. Please provide your mail address and current size.
