    Shelsley Walsh Hill Climb on 5th September 1931.

    "A racing car is given a push start at the beginning of its attempt at the Hill Climb" - this is R.G.J. "Dick" Nash in his Frazer Nash, "The Terror."
    00:58 – Basil Davenport’s Shelsley special “Spider” on its first run up through the Bottom “S.”
    01:41 – Davenport’s second run through the “Esses” and on to the finish straight.
