Here is Harry Hawker, chief test pilot for the Sopwith Aircraft Company, and one of the founders of Hawker Aircraft. His ride was a Sunbeam-Mercedes and it was quite quick. When not flying aircraft he was a regular at Brooklands. During WWII the Hawker company built Hurricanes at Brooklands. Sadly, Harry was not there to see it as he died in a crash in 1921.
