Description After his first driving stint lapping at 127 mi/h and averaging 120 mi/h in spite of refuelling stops, Jack was in fourth place. He entered the pits, and after a refill and wheel-change, his brother Clive replaced him and climbed into the Bentley. Soon afterwards, in passing Earl Howe's Bugatti and John Cobb's Talbot, Clive Dunfee had gone too high up the banking, putting the wheel of his car over the lip of the Members Banking, close to the bridge. The car cartwheeled over the top, hit a large tree, the driver was thrown out and killed instantly, and the Bentley plunged down through the trees to the entrance-road below, and narrowly missed a spectator's car.
