So while doing some research on early Frazer Nash cars for my build, I found a picture of Archie himself. Best I can tell is that it is listed as a GN in one picture. Either way, I absolutely love the style of the car! Any help identifying what it was he was driving would be much appreciated. Photos are attached.

Found another photo of it. Might have been called Rikki Tikki.

Is anyone else struck by the apparent composure displayed by him in that airborne shot?

I wonder if these cars at speed spent more time in the air than on the ground. His composure is wild, we need some moving pictures.

My first thought was "he has some serious nads." I used to run around and ramp snowmobiles all the time when I was younger. But, I never caught HUGE air, and, I had a solid vehicle to land in. Archie on the other hand apparently had utmost faith in his car!

The first is a pretty well known photo. There is some stuff on the original Godfather of Cyclekarts site, the Stevensons.

It's as if the man really has no idea he's 3 ft in the air or what's about to happen to him whenever
the comes down. What must that have been like, all out of shape? If one didn't know better they might think they were viewing the last living photo of old Archie!

That photo is at the top of "Test Hill" at Brooklands. He crested very quickly. One of his many specials, I will ask the Fraser Nash club if they can be more specific. Membership application has been done!

Maybe they should be re routing the Orchard track at Tieton to promote some "Air Time" for CycleKarts?

Maybe those guys just weren't as excitable.

Even these two gentlemen appear relatively unconcerned.

I know I got some in Mikes Mercedes at the corner most distant from the pits at the top of the hill, but not AFN like!
