    I am not complaining, but mademoiselle appears seriously underdressed for the occasion.

    Milne sponsored Singer 1500s in SoCal road races 1951-53; drivers Bill Quinn, Jack Milne, Lammy Lamoreaux, others. However,the driver in this photo looks like Jack McAfee who never raced a Singer.

      Sadly Michael J is no longer with us. However, I believe the fellow in the photo is Cordy Milne. Cordy and his brother Jack were World Champion Speedway racers. After retiring from bike racing, they raced Singers and had a Singer dealership in Pasadena. The scantily clad lady in the photo is most likely Cordy’s wife Willis Marie Van Schaack, known professionally as Lili St. Cyr, a prominent American burlesque stripteaser. Cordy was the first of her 5 husbands.
