TRIP TO TEST MOTOR CARS.

The New York Times
April 24, 1900


Seventy-five Vehicles Start from London to Edinburgh and Return.

LONDON, April 23.—About seventy-five motor cars of all sorts and sizes started from the Hyde Park corner this morning, on a trial journey of a thousand miles, to Edinburgh and return, under the auspices of the Automobile Club.  The trial is not intended as a race, but as a test of the usefulness and strength of the vehicles.

Great interest was manifested in the start, and thousands of persons witnessed the processon, which was followed by hundreds of cyclists, as the motor cars departed in the direction of Bristol, where the participants are scheduled to spend the first night.
