Hillman Aero Minx Streamliner
A streamlined sportscar designed by Freddie March, a successful Brooklands racing driver who began Goodwood’s association with motorsport.
Freddie March (later the Duke of Richmond & Gordon), the successful racing driver, engineer, and entrepreneur, designed this upgraded Hillman Minx in 1933. He also designed coachwork for other marques including AC and Riley. Arthur Mulliner of Northampton built the body for this example.
Although lower and more sporting than the standard Minx saloon on which it was based, the Aero Minx was not a particularly fast racer, but this type of car was often bought by amateur drivers who wished to compete in national trials and competitions at the Brooklands circuit.
