The Mercedes-Benz Club, which seems to enrol almost as many new members every month as the Rolls-Royce EC, and which claims to be the oldest club in the world for cars made by the oldest motor-manufacturer is to celebrate its 40th Anniversary with a five-day rally in this country next June, sponsored by Mercedes-Benz (UK) Ltd, Castrol (UK) Ltd, and the German Wine Information Service. It will be open only to Benz, Cannstatt Daimler, Mercedes and Mercedes-Benz cars, but friends from the world’s M-B clubs will be welcome. Entries close on February 1st, to Stan Smith, 2 Craighall Road, Sharpies, Bolton, Lancs, BL1 7HH (0204-51973).

lt seems probable that those who read this section of MOTOR SPORT also enjoy The Bulletin of the VSCC (it would be tactless to speculate in which order) and when these sources of vintage inspiration have been exhausted, they might well turn to the Chain Gang Gazette, official magazine of the Frazer Nash CC – and it is debatable whether any single car has been more especially aimed at pure sporting and jollification motoring than the Frazer Nash. The December 1991 issue of this Gazette had a splendidly balanced piece by Barry Clarke about his Godfrey and Proctor pastiche, an enjoyably long article by W G Craddock about fun with GNs, and John Gott’s account of three seasons rallying with his Le Mans Replica Frazer Nash, etc. We believe copies may be available to non-members, who should apply to Editor Brian Heath, Spring Cottage, 20 High Street, Milford-on-Sea, Hants. SO41 0QD.

We are glad to learn that the AFN archives are safely stored at Henley-on-Thames, although the ambition to house them in the old Robin Jackson sheds at Brooklands has had to be abandoned. The Frazer Nash Group of companies has gone into receivership but John Aldington has registered Frazer Nash Ltd to promote and protect Frazer Nash history via the FN archives, which include works records, sales books, letters going back to 1924, etc, a complete list of GN and FN drivers and cars in BARC races from 1921 to 1939, with lap speeds, car colours and race numbers, compiled by WB, as well as trophies and other mementos.
