From Motor Sport April 1928: "Particular comment was forthcoming - chiefly from the ladies - regarding the colour scheme adopted by Mr Llewellyn, who rejoices in the soubriquet of 'Ginger'. This gentleman howled up the hill in his blue 6-cylinder Amilcar, clad in boiler suiting of light blue, the whole surmounted by a brilliant shock of, shall we say, very auburn hair."
