It's my father-in-law Stan on his 100th birthday yesterday, at the tiller of a 1901 Lanchester that once belonged to Rudyard Kipling. He is, as far as we know, the oldest surviving apprentice of Lanchester, who built the first British petrol driven car in 1895. The car was brought to Sutton Park by the Jaguar and Daimler Heritage Trust, and has a 4 litre, 2 cylinder engine with epicyclic gearbox, no steering wheel, no foot brake and a foot operated bell. Stan remembers test driving such cars in the Malvern hills in the early 1920's. We think he really enjoyed his birthday surprise."
