Coach House Chronicle April 2021


From Military Drums to a Jappic Racing Cyclecar, Read all about it in the April edition of the Caoch House Chronicle


Recently attendees at Smoko were treated to a wonderful surprise, a Jappic Racing Cyclecar, designed and built by Garth Thomas, over 2014 to 2018!
Advertised in racing literature as the ‘World’s Smallest Racing Car’, it was de-signed in 1925 by H M Walters, and built by the coach building firm of T B Prestwich and driven by Walters. The car was pow-ered by a 344cc JAP motorcycle engine and lapped the course at 66.8 mph. Jappic also secured several other UK and World class records.
