BARC

The hilIclimb championship run by the British Automobile Racing Club with twelve rounds, covering the country from Scotland to Devon will be sponsored once again by Jim Thomson’s Otley-based Guyson company. The end-of-season winner will not only get the Archie Frazer-Nash Trophy and £600 in cash, but will also receive a Guyson Beadblaster installation. At one time amateur fettlers used to dream of owning a welding plant; today they all dream of owning a Guyson Beadblaster for cleaning anything from a piston to a back-axle. Unfortunately, this type of amateur is unlikely to win the hilIclimb championship.

Monoposto Racing Club

This Club is contemplating the revival of the 1964-1970 one-litre Formula Three as an Historic formula. A draft has been drawn up and will include many of the original features of this exciting formula. These include: all the rnixture to the engine passing through a 36 mm. washer, although the downdraught head will be permitted; the restriction of the number of gears to four plus reverse and the banning of aerofoils. Limitations on wheel rim and tyre tread widths will attempt to equate the performance of the earlier cars to those built at the end of the formula.

The Club would like to here from owners of suitable cars who would be interested in racing them. It is hoped to include events for these cars in 1982. Enquiries should be directed to:

Alan Putt, “Brooklands”, 10 Firby Lane, Hartley, Dartford, Kent, DA3 8DA Tel: Longfield (04747) 3794.

Austin-Healey Club

Perhaps the high spot of 1981 for followers of this marque will be the International Healey Weekend at the Three Counties Showground Malvern, Worcestershire on 4th and 5th July. Competitive motoring, however, is not the aim of the weekend, although there will be the opportunity for Inter-Centre competitions as well as the usual concours, and a run through the Malvern Hills.

Alfa Romeo 2000 and 2600 Register

Roger Monk’s Alfa Romeo 2600 Register has met with such good response, following the occasional appeal in these pages, that it is to be extended to cover owners of the 2000 range. These are the cars which look very like the 2600 and which were made between 1958 and the introduction of the 2600 in 1962, the only significant difference being the power unit. Roger would be pleased to hear from owners of such cars at “Tempest”, High Street, Henham, Nr. Bishops Stortford, Herts.

Lamborghini Owners Club

M. S. Pullen writes from 44, Sussex Road, Haywards Heath, Sussex to let us know of the formation of this Club, although no details of its aims and services have as yet been forthcoming.
