    The BRDC 500-Mile Race at Brooklands (Outer Circuit) on 12th October 1929.

    The winners, sitting on the 4½-litre Bentley, are Frank Clement (left) and Jack Barclay (right).

    Frank Clement worked as an engineer for Bentley. Jack Barclay established a Bentley dealership in 1927 which still exists today.
