H W Purdy (Laystall Special) and Dudley Froy in Miller's pre-WW1 'Blitzen' Benz. The Autocar commented re the latter: "the race included that colossal relic of the old days, a Blitzen Benz, rather comical with a 4-seater body. Such an indignity it drearily resented, first by making great noise and smokle, then by trailing its undershield contemptuously on the track".
