Mentioned elsewhere in this Forum is a post that I intended to build a 1927 Delage GP car as run by a relative of my wife's - WB "Bummer" Scott who died in 1981. He raced at Brooklands, had some drives for the works Bentley team and set loads of endurance records at places like Monthlery. It is for his Brooklands exploits that he is best remembered and we are currently getting memorial plaque put up for him in the Brooklands Memorial Garden once we can agree the wording. This is part of this tribute and I have tried for years to work up the skill and enthusiasm to build both a brass chassis and make a decent job of the body. Having failed at both, I have passed the project over to Martin Field who is working on this model for me and so far, we have this.
These are the Goodwood pics
and this is a very poor picture of Bummer himself who I am trying to write brief history of from the family perspective.

William Scott seems to pop up in my various researches every now and then. A look at the 'Racing Sports cars' and Kolumbus sites make reference to Scotts racing, both successful and otherwise. Boddy's second Brooklands volume makes exactly 31 references.
He also apparently owned one of the 2LCV cars for a short time.
