A Bristol M.1C modified after World War I as a racing plane, powered by a Bristol "Lucifer" 3-cylinder radial engine. Enjoyed some success on the racing circuit, but the "Lucifer" engine proved to be a dead end.

The photo above clearly illustrates the only real disadvantage to the otherwise-excellent M1 as an operational fighter: the wings obstructed the pilot's downward view!
