Alta Voiturette

Collection Item

Alta Voiturette

This Alta raced at Brooklands with a Robin Jackson designed body.

This car is the second of four single-seaters of this type built by designer and builder Geoffrey Taylor in the 1930s. Its original owner, Hugh Curling Hunter, sent the chassis to Robin Jackson who built a more streamlined body for it in this shed.

Hunter competed in races on the Brooklands Campbell Circuit in this Alta including the 1938 International Trophy. In this car, he also won the coveted Brooklands 120mph badge. The badge is on display with other personal items in the Hunter Study in the Campbell Shed, bequeathed to the Museum by his long-term partner Derek Orgles.
