Continental hill-climbs usually offer a much longer climb than their British counterparts, so the chance to enter such an event in Switzerland should be of interest. The AC Suisse are running the Massongex-Verossaz climb on August 31st, and are inviting vintage, thoroughbred, and classic entries from the UK. The course is 3.5 kms in length, with 22 corners. Details and entry forms from Barry Easlick, 193 Bedford Avenue, Trading Estate, Slough SL1 4RT.

Any history of this car will be gratefully received by the Club Archivist J Steward, Borrow Hall Studios, Dumpling Green, East Dereham, Norfolk.
