One of the most enjoyable fixtures in the V.S.C.C. calendar is their Oulton Park Race Meeting, if the weather behaves. This year it takes place on June 21st. As the V.S.C.C. believes in tradition and not change for the sake of change, the programme is as in previous years. The main races are the Richard Seaman Memorial Historic Trophy 10-lapper for historic racing cars and the companion race, also over 10 laps, for vintage racing cars. The fastest post-war racers will come out again for the 12-lap Allcomers’ race and there will be the usual four-lap (a long way for pre-1930 machinery) handicaps, including the chain-drive G.N./Frazer Nash race and one for solo vintage motorcycles. Practice takes place on the Friday and for a short period on the Saturday morning and cars should be in the Paddock by 11.30 a.m. on race day.

The first event starts at 1 p.m. and during the morning a selection of immaculate pre-war cars will take part in the Club’s most important Concours d’Elegance of the season, with the Cheshire Life Trophy as the main prize, the competing vehicles later parading round the course for all to see—which for old-car lovers is quite a sight. Points will be scored during the afternoon in the Motor Sport Brooklands Memorial Trophy Contest, in which the leader at present is Merrett in Cecil Clutton’s 1928 Type 43 Bugatti. It will be interesting to see whether the 1959 G.P. Aston Martin can keep its lead over the lighter Lotus 16s in the Seaman Historic Race, but Corner’s Type 35B Bugatti will probably start favourite in the Seaman Vintage Race.

For vintage enthusiasts this is a meeting not to be missed. Gate money goes to Cheshire Car Circuits Ltd., not to the organising Club, but there is no car-park charge. No dogs please, and small children on leads. To commemorate its 21st anniversary the 12/50 Alvis Register will have a special park for vintage Alvis cars. There is a bridge over the course so even if you arrive late or have to leave early, try to make Oulton Park on June 21st.—W. B.
