I WEEKLY MOTOR NOTES. One sometimes hears motorists say Fanny that lAchelin have given up racing." But there is a reascul for this retirement from the racing world, which every motonist wftl appreciate. To go back to the beginning, Michelin only wmt in for racing because there was something to learn from it. This was in the good old days before racing tyres were the monstrosities they are to-day. There was to learn that which would improve the quality of tyres for general purposes and as long as racing could be useful to Miehelin in that direction, just so long did Michelin continue to take part in races. That these lessons bore fruit was demonstrated by the conspicuous success achieved year after year by Michelin over all other competitors— and not only on the race-circuits but on the roads of the world at large, where motorists were finding out how great a difference lay as it lies to-day-between Miehelins and tyres of other makes. Eventually, however, there was nothing more to learn, from racing tests, to the ad- vantage of tyres for general purposes. Speed had so increased that it became necessary to build abnormal tyres, "faked" monstrosities which could stand terrific strain for four or five hundred miles but which could not, even under ordinary running conditions, do the greater distances which the tourist demands. Consequently Michelin retired from the race- track, well satisfied with the knowledge gained and with the emblems of victories achieved. Michelin left it to others to spend time and money in constructing racing freaks, and con- centrated upon the further improvement of tyres for use by the motoring public. The result is that Michelin Quality has gained a longer lead than ever and so confident are Michelin of the vast superiority of their tyres over all other makes that they are now pro- viding motorists with the means of comparing the work done by their Michelina with that of any other tyres they ma y fit. A postcard addressed to the Michelin Tyre Co. Ltd., at 81, Fulham-roa d, London, S. W., will bring a complimentary copy of this Record book by return. I BIBENDUM.
