One of the most prestigious air races of its day, the MacRobertson England to Australia air race of 1934 was contested by three DH.88 Comet aircraft, with 'Black Magic' G-ACSP being the first to take off. Unfortunately engine problems curtailed its involvement while its sister machine 'Grosvenor House' won the race. G-ACSR also suffered reliability issues during the race, but its high speed still enabled it to finish in fourth position.
Includes markings for G-ACSS "Grosvenor House", October 20th 1934.
