Timed Trials

Timed Trials

Commonly we use the measurement “0-60” to show the time duration to reach that velocity from a standing start. Timed trials were popular in England and measured the ability of a car to speed up quickly, much the same as drag racing today. The “Blower” Bentley shown here was the winner of the Isle of Man Time Trials in 1930. It is a supercharged model, and they made only 50 available for sale to customers. This car is one of the few that keeps its original body.
