A photograph album has come to light depicting how two GNs, one a Ford-equipped Legère (Reg. No. DW 3024), the other an English version bought in a Cambridge junk-shop, were turned into a low-built, long-tailed single-seater Special at Jesus Lane, Cambridge and at Chippenham in the early 1930s, by a Mr. Remnant, the work being finished before he left for China in 1935. An HE was used as a two-car and two 3-litre Bentleys were also in she stable, one of them a 1925 Vanden Plas four-seater owned originally by R. S. Featherstonehaugh. Martin Grant Peterkin, past-owner of a vintage Bentley, a VSCC member since 1963, and driver of the Earl of Moray’s pre-war Maserati, will take over the position of Competitions Secretary of the VSCC from Jim Whyman after next June’s Oulton Park Race Meeting. The January-March issue of Vintage Aircraft contains interesting articles on the old Hanworth Air Park (where the Club-house still exists), the Welsh Aviation Co. of 1919-1922, and pre-war and post-war air-racing by Ron Paine, etc.
