FROM last month’s issue of the Morgan Three-Wheeler Club Magazine we learn that in last October seven Morgan three-wheelers made an expedition to Montlhéry Track and took part in the Coupes de l’Age d’Or thereon. What a splendid idea! We have for a long time felt that the VSCC might profitably have — meeting at Montlhéry. There would be a banked track to sample (and since the demise of Brooklands it is important to give support to any similar tracks that still operate) and a road circuit to race over and Paris just up the road for the social side. However, the VSCC is fixed in its ways and it seems unlikely that it could be persuaded to cross the Channel.

Anyway, the Morgans went, from 1921 Runabout to Aero Super Sports. They had many adventures and mingled at Montlhéry with four Sandfords, a Darmont four-wheeler, a Fiat, an Amilcar and a Salmson, etc. It really happened, for they have photographs to prove it—one is a pure 1920s French sporting occasion, with Sandford and stripped Amilcar Grand Sport in the foreground—or would be but for the modern cars in the background . . . This was a minor “raid” compared to the Bolzano expedition of the chain-drive Frazer Nashes earlier in the summer, but must have been great fun and it even secured a new member for the Morgan Three-Wheeler Club, whose Membership Secretary is Geoff Hughes, 16, Fairway Road, Oldbury, Warley, Worcs.

Interesting how owners of cars with chain-drive seem to have so much fun! And a Morgan is the obvious outlet for an impecunious would-be Frazer Nash owner. So we wish this very enthusiastic Club well for 1970.—W.B.
