The wheel ruts in front of the front tyres and the dust being raised suggest that it may have ceased forward motion and be rolling back for another go? Front drive on gravel on a steep hill = lack of progress!

The Auto's caption: "P C Ralli fails hopelessly to get wheel-grip on Bwlch-y-Groes". It was also reported that Mr Ralli had a difficult night "damaging his radiator by pushing a sheep, then visiting a ditch and finally getting his con rods through his crankcase at Glyn Ceitiog".
