Tim Carson, Secretary of the Vintage S.C.C. has changed his address. It is now: Brook’s Cottage, Bishop’s Green, near Newbury, Berkshire (tel: Headley (Newbury) 218). The Club was able to announce in its Autumn Bulletin that membership had reached 2,079, a very fine achievement.

The V.S.C.C. ended the old year with one of its popular driving-test meetings, at a new venue at Witley Park, near Haslemere, on December 7th. In spite of fog there was a good attendance, with an entry of 28. In the big vintage-car class John Vessey took the only first-class award, with his special 1928 Lancia Lambda. Jane, with his well-known cut-and-shut Lambda missed a “first,” but, with Norman Routledge’s wonderful 1924 Morris-Cowley tourer from Leeds, won a second-class award.  C. J. Richardson ‘s more modern Alvis had to be content with a third-class award. Michael Arnold-Forster in his evergreen 1925 Frazer Nash deserves great praise for taking a first-class award in the up-to-1-1/2-litre vintage-car class in company with B. E. Brown in his 1930 Frazer Nash. Gahagen got a second-class award in this category with his G.P. Bugatti, as did Wood with his far less accelerative 1923 disc-wheeled Riley coupé. A third-class award went to Bonham-Christie’s 1927 Frazer Nash. The thoroughbred chassis were merged, E. J. Laker’s 1934 Riley taking a first-class award and R. Trustcott’s 1934 Frazer Nash a second-class award.

There was a special award for the best vintage light car, won by Wood’s stately Riley Eleven.

Having thus closed the old year effectively in spite of the poor weather, the V.S.C.C. proposed to open 1953 with its ambitious Measham Rally on January 3rd/4th.
