The Vintage Motor Cycle Club, which has over 4,500 members, has published its 1983 Fixture List, which contains 243 remaining events, to be run by the various Sections, which should be enough to keep everyone amused, from cyclemotor rider to those who get astride big-twins. The Banbury Run is scheduled for June 19th, there is a Ladies’ Run in Northamptonshire in May, a Land’s End-John O’Groats six-day event, and race meetings, grass-track meetings, trials, picnics, scenic and social runs, even a night trail. The Sec. is K. Hailsworth, 26, Shrigley Road N., Higher Poynton, Near Stockport, Cheshire, 5K12 ITE.
The Bugatti OC commences its Prescott season on April 9th/10th but before that, has its Prize-giving Luncheon at Droitwich on March 20th, and the Bugatti visit to the now-deserving Mulhouse Museum is on March 11th-13th, its Spring Week-end in the Bristol area on March 26th 27th. The National Hill-Climb Championship takes place at Prescott on April 30th/May 1st. Sec. G. Ward, Prescott Hill, Gotherirgton, Cheltenham, Glos., GL52 4RD.
Honda S800 Sports Car Club
Now four years old, this club concerns itself with the relatively rare 800 c.c. sports car which Honda produced some time ago. Like most one-make clubs, there is a range of help and advice available for those running or rebuilding the cars, but in addition there is a team racing regularly in the Post-Historic Road Sports Championship. So if you are interested in small-capacity racing, contact Clare Farrow (membership secretary), “Rowan Wood”, Southwell Road, BenfIeet. Essex SS7 1HB.
Singer Owners Club
After five years as secretary, John Oliver is standing down to be replaced by Martyn Wray, 52 Waverley Gardens, Stamford, Lincolnshire. Tel.: Stamford 2740.
Sunbeam Talbot Alpine Register
A change of secretary has also taken place within the STAR, the new incumbent being Mr. Peter Shimmell, 183 Needlers End Lane, Balsall Common, West Midlands.
Congratulations to the Rolls-Royce EC for the publication, in their beautifully-produced Bulletin, of a learned and comprehensive article on the history of the streamlined Paulin-bodied 4-1/4-litre Bentley, B27LE, as raced by Hay and Wisdom at Le Mans, and now a similar history of the next aerodynamic Bentley, the prototype Corniche, 14BV. The first article was by Peter Baines and James Fack is presenting the latter. Incidentally, the R-REC and the BDC are to co-operate later this year in celebrating the Golden Jubilee of the Derby Bentley, over the weekend of June 18th / 19th. And congratulations to the Daimler & Lanchestcr OC — its magazine, The Driving Member, was the first 1983 Club magazine received by us.
