I have reviewed so many hundreds of motoring books along the years, that I have become accustomed to them in all sizes, shapes, good, indifferent and a few less good. But nothing has made the impact, for a very long time, as did Mrs Elizabeth Bennett's masterful work on the 1900 One Thousand Mile Trial, perhaps the most important landmark in the history of the British motor movement.
