Owl N WIN-0 1 N HAS BEEN busy tidying up `Babs’, including a re-paint and replacing a broken gearboxlayshaft incurred during the giant’s demonstration runs at VSCC Pembrey last June. He has also made a splendid
24 inch model of `Babs’ (above) to 1/10 scale, such a sensible size for any model. * * * * * * REG NICE HAS WON THE PRE-WAR A7 Clubs Bert Hadley Championship for the third year in succession, with his 1931 production-type A7 Ulster running in both s/c and nons/c forms. Runner-up and winner of the Murray Jamieson Trophy was Bob Sterling (1930 A7), and WB’s daughter Nondus Banning-Boddy took the Kay Pete Award in her first sprint year, borrowing Nice’s car. * * * THIS HAS BEEN A YEAR OF PUBUC
roads being opened again for demonstration runs by historic cars, which qualifies the worth of such events as outlined above. Recently we had the Kop Hill reunion, Canon Webber’s wonderful Basildon lappery, the Malvern Wynch Hill Cyclecar Day, and lately the two-day Raymond Mays’ Commemoration at Bourne went off extremely well, with an excellent dinner at which a large number of appropriate guests assembled and ERAs and VI6 BRMs driven round some of the town’s roads. Can you imagine the noise? The programme, I am told included car-plugs.
