On 2 May 2012 I showed some photographs of the 24 litre Napier-Railton which did some demonstration runs at the Richard Seaman Memorial Trophy meeting at Donington Park in May 2011. This car was powered by a Napier Lion broad arrow configuration aeroplane engine, and at the same meeting at Donington Park in May 2001 one of the cars competing was the Napier-Bentley, a 1929 Bentley 8 litre chassis fitted with a Napier Sea Lion boat engine which is based on that Lion aeroplane engine. Here are two photographs of the car I took that day.
You can see here the four stub exhausts from the middle of the three banks of cylinders sticking out of the bonnet above the left-hand bank of cylinders......
.....and here you can see the right-hand bank of cylinders. Chris Williams is driving the car and I took the photograph from the inside of Coppice Corner.
