Austin A30/A35 Owners Club 

The A35 was a very familiar sight in the ‘Fifties and ‘Sixties, but not many people will remember seeing a pick-up version. Only 500 of these were built, as they were expensive and held little cargo. Now the A30/A35 Club are trying to locate those which remain, and are hoping that readers will be able to help. The person to contact if you know of one of these vehicles is Derek Lamb, 17 Ormsby Drive, Potters Bar, Hertfordshire, and no doubt he will also pass on information about membership. 

SMOG over Britain 

Not a prediction, but the announcement of the formation of a UK section of the Sprite/Midget Owners Group. So far, members have tended to be from the Midlands, but the catchment area is increasing. There is a monthly UK newsletter, plus a quarterly magazine from the parent group in the USA, and the Group claim to have already unearthed some obsolete parts — but you have to join to be able to buy them! Acting Secretary is P. J. Dicks, 38 Howdles Lane, Brownhills, Walsall, West Midlands.

Dellow Register 

Another major weekend meet will be held on July 2nd and 3rd at Stone Manor Hotel in the Midlands. The organisers are hoping to repeat the success of last year’s event, and the Sunday events include driving tests. Fuller details are available from Mark Hayward, 122 Marlborough Hill, Harrow, Middlesex. 

Crayford Convertible Car Club 

Over the years the coachbuilding firm of Crayford has applied its talents to many different vehicles, and a club has now been formed for owners of any of these, whether soft-top or estate / hatchback conversions. The current “standard” model is the Fiesta Firefly convertible, produced under licence from Ford; drivers of these and earlier cars should contact Rory Cronin, 17 Carey Road, Moordown, Bournemouth. 

St. John Horsfall Trophy Race Meeting 

Organised by the Aston Martin Owners Club, this spectacular meeting which regularly attracts the best grids in historic racing will be taking place at Silverstone on Saturday, 25th June. In addition to three races entirely for the Aston Martin marque, there are rounds of the Historic Car Championship (the continuation of the old Lloyds & Scottish series), Atlantic Computers Historic GT Championship, Robin Hamilton Inter-Marque Championship, the AMOC Thoroughbred Sports Championship and the HSCC Classic Sportscar and Post-Historic Sports Championships. The final race of the day is an allcomers race and one of the early entries has been a Porsche 917. . . Racing starts at about 2.00 p.m. and admission for adults costs £3.30.
