Alexander Winton was a builder and driver of early racing cars. His third racing car, the "Bullet No. 2", was one of the first automobiles to use an 8-cylinder, in-line engine. Winton and Harold B. Anderson, chief engineer of Winton Motor Carriage Company, built this automobile for the fourth Gordon Bennett road race, held in Ireland, 1903, but the car was forced out of the race due to mechanical problems.
