VSCC Brooklands driving tests
On January 29 the VSCC went to Brooklands for a driving-test meeting, with 10 tests laid out for the 61 competitors. Some of the less-usual cars had a go, such as Belsize Bradshaw, Rhode, OM, 1935 Hudson and the Riley-Ford Special of A Winn and Sandy Skinner. The Be!size had a bad day, retiring before any of the tests and the others who gave up were Mrs Shapland's normally effective 10/23 Talbot, the OM and the Hirrons' Frazer Nash.
