Hot off the Press

Tim Dyke has kindly sent us this article written in 1934 by Bill Boddy (WRB) in The Motor magazine, October 1934. Bill was a very young man, aged 21, starting out on what turned out to be the most illustrious career as a "Muttering Rotter" (Motoring Writer) - of course the least appropriate nickname one could saddle him with. He became editor of Motor Sport Magazine. Enjoy the article and the road is perfectly motorable these days by car or bike...The Unmotorable Road [PDF]
