GORDON BENNET ! The mysterious case of the Gordon Bennet case

My old friend dean Clewes has some interesting old things, he recently acquired this old leather suitcase, inside there is an engraved brass plate which reads. Presented to tho,s f dodd esquire by the Manchester cycle &  motor trades party, Gordon Bennet race, July 4th 1903.

 Astonishingly there is a film of the event, moving pictures had not long been invented or for that matter the motor car. at the time of the race, there were no more than 400 cars in the whole of Ireland,  most of the locals had never seen one before.
 This battered old leather case is a relic from one of the very earliest international car races, the grand prix of a hundred years past. hair raising speeds of 50mph were recorded but the cars were piloted through the villages, by boys on bicycles to avoid accidents.

 while researching the mysterious case i came upon this nice little article,which explains the origins of the race, and a little of the wild hell raising  lifestyle of its reckless millionaire benefactor.

 I suspect not many people know exactly why, but his name still crops up regularly in England, particularly the south, To proclaim GORDON BENNET ! usually means youve had some sort of unexpected surprise, and not necessarily a nice one.
