A cable received .by the Continental j Rubber Co. giving the final results of the French Grand Prix—the world's great- ■ est .motoring event—reports an averagej speed of S3 miles an hour maintained by che winner (Bablot, on a Delage,) over a course of 569 miles, aad gives the first eight places to riders on Continental: tyres. The banlop K.ubber Co. thinks that there has been a misreading of the cable, which may have referred to 6ome minor event, the Grand Prix having been tieid on July 12m. and ^particulars pub lished in the press on July 14. The winner's average speed, as then recorded, was 72 miles an hour. The distance from Lands End to John o' Groats (890) was recently covered by a Mr Davies in a small Singer cycle-car shod with Dualqp tyres, in 30 boats 39 mins.
