The Vintage SCC holds its annual speed hill-climb at the Bugatti OC’s Prescott course near Cheltenham on August 5th, the first competitor starts at 11am. Admission costs £3, transfer to Paddock £2, accompanied children under 15 free, but no dogs. The VSCC Cadwell Park racing will again occupy August Bank Holiday Sunday at this very sporting circuit, well suited to vintage and historic cars, near Louth in Lincolnshire.

Guernsey Old Car Club is staging a rally on 5th/6th August for pre-1940 cars from the mainland. The speed limit on the Island of 35 mph should ensure that competing cars are not tried too hard! The entry fee of £325 includes the cost of the ferry, hotel and meals. Details from JG Doggart, Delamere House, Les Canus, St. Sampson’s, Cl.

For those who encompass two as well as four wheels the Sunbeam MCC is holding a Road Safety Run in Kent on July 29th. It is for pre-1931 motorcycles and threewheelers over a 36-mile route, starting at 11am from the Whitbread Hop Farm and Museum at Beltring, Paddock Wood, Kent. Veteran riders will have a shorter 27 mile route to traverse.

An important fixture on the club calendar is the Eight Clubs Race Meeting at Silverstone, in which long-standing Clubs such as the 750MC and the Hants & Berks MC combine their activities. Note the date now — October 20th. The Hants & Berks MC continues its social round but is also active in marshalling at rallies as important as the Lombard RAC (November 25-28). The Hon Secretary actually lives in Berkshire in contrast to other officials from Surrey, Hampshire and Bucks. He is Bill Bonney, 283 London Bridge Road, Woodley, Reading, RG5 4BE if any local enthusiasts are looking for an all-round motor club.

The Morris Register’s excellent Journal, edited by Harry Edwards, has been going for 30 years and the summer issue managed colour pictures of the London-Brighton Run and a history of the 1926 Morris one-ton truck rebuilt as one of the mascots of the royal School of Mines.

The MCC holds its 86th anniversary Edinburgh Trial on October 6th, starting from Weedon and finishing at Buston. Entries are limited to 250 and you have to be an MCC member — which nicely underlines the size of this pioneer club. Entries close by August 18th to A Margetts, 21 Madresfield Road, Malvern, Worcs, WR14 2AS.

The Alvis OC’s Northern Alvis Day at Harewood House is on September 9, entries closing on September 5, to M Fletcher, Rockwood Cottage, Sheat Bank Road, Blackburn, Lancs.
