 Built for Trials and racing, the Singers were the most successful cars of the 1930’s in all national and international events in which sports cars featured. They won many coveted awards, in most cases the leading awards of the day. 

 Singer first competed at Le Mans in 1933 with a single car which became the first un-supercharged British car under 1000cc to qualify for the Rudge-Whittworth cup, this became the inspiration for the 2 seat Singer Le Mans which was launched at the end of September that year. The LeMans was continually developed by Singer and the 35 model had a 972cc engine with fully counterbalanced crankshaft and twin SU carburettors.

 The Singer MSS D Team was the last team to be formed and was known as the Ruddy Team. The Ruddy team consisted of 3 cars; Dave Harris as the skipper in BGK 20, H W Johnson in Ruddy 2 and Bob Sandland in the third car.

 They immediately made a very strong impression and started to win team and individual prizes together with other leading awards week after week.

 BGK 20 represented the Singer Motor Car Club helping to win most of the team awards in all the trials and rallies of the period. BGK 20 was the 7thSpecial Speed model produced in the Autumn of 1934 when the Ruddy team was formed.

 The Three works supported cars were all finished in Carnation Red livery and also known as the Singer Red Team. BGK 20 raced at Brooklands in the relay race of 1935, and also won many top awards as well as finishing 2ndin the 1935 Monte Carlo Rally.

 BGK 20 is offered for sale in excellent condition, the Carnation red glistens in the sun, the paintwork matched with the red spoked wheels and high quality chromework makes this Singer Le Mans attractive from every angle.

 There are twin spare wheels to the rear and a luggage rack on top of the LeMans fuel tank, allowing for plenty of luggage and fuel for a long journey.

 The fluted red leather seats are also in excellent condition, much the same for the carpets and mohair hood.

 The engine is smooth and strong, firing instantly the 997cc engine certainly has plenty of power, sitting behind the wheel you get a real understanding of how BGK 20 achieved runner up at the 1935 Monte Carlo rally.

 A great opportunity to own an original Singer Le Man Special Speed team car, in our showroom and ready for viewing.
