Edited by Mike Micks. 120 pp. 8-1/2 in. x 5-3/4 in. (PSL Ltd., 9 Ely Place, London, EC1N 6SQ. £1.50.)

Here is an excellent insight into how the two-wheeler racing and competition world functions. Excellent and very exciting action pictures abound and writers of the calibre of Dave Amos, John Brown, Chris Carter, Vincent Davey, Neville Goss, Rod Gould, Doug Hale, Frank Perois, Barry Sheene and Jim Swift expound, for the enlightenment of interested car competition folk. There are illustrated biographies of 26 leading riders and details of the major UK race circuits, results of Formula 750 since 1969 and some useful trade names and addresses.—W. B.
_____________________________________________

Everyone who owns a post-war, or Crewe Bentley, or any Bentley for that matter, should be a member of the Bentley DC. If they were, they would have received a remarkable booklet, one of those extremely conscientious and comprehensive histories of these cars compiled, after infinite research into old company records and other archives, by the club’s inimitable President, Stanley Sedgwick. This publication, in similar format to that of the Bentley Drivers Club Gazette, is called “Twenty Years of Crewe Bentleys, 1946-1965.” Published with the authority of Rolls-Royce Motors. Ltd., it runs to 52 pages, 5-1/2 in. x 8-1/2 in., and is packed with data—production figures, where the cars went, the coachwork fitted, prices when new, road-test summaries, specifications, chassis numbers with delivery dates, technical modifications, etc. The types covered are the Mk. VI, R-type, R-Continental. S1, S2 and S3, with articles on the R-R Silver Dawn. If any are left, those non-members may be able to obtain a copy, for 50p (two dollars or equivalent, if overseas) from the Bentley Drivers Club Ltd., 76a High Street, Long Crendon, Aylesbury, Bucks. But hurry! If the publication is restricted to members only, it would be worth joining for this data alone!

**************************************************************

Those interested in souping-up or otherwise equipping their Fords as rally or fast road cars cannot do better than obtain a copy of the “Ford Rallye Sport” book, which is a book-cum-catalogue about tuning, using the Ford AVO parts available for Escort, Capri, Cortina and Taunus models. With explanations of how to go about increasing the power and improving the road-holding, etc., notes on Ford’s European drivers, a 1973 fixture-list, racing and rallying with Mexicos, etc., and lots of pictures and a colour-cover, this is just the job, and good value, at 50p. This “Ford Rallye Sport” book measures 11-3/4 in. x 8 in., has 58 pages, and you can obtain it from any Ford Rallye Sport Dealer, here or on the continent.

***************************************************************

“Profile No. 7” is by Michael Sedgwick and covers The Facel Vega, in its 1954-62 FVS HK 500, Facelia and Facel II versions. This makes a highly-interesting study, well illustrated as is usual with these 50p folders, while the author treats us to a discourse on the French grand routiers and how Jean Daninos sought to revive their grandeur with his Facel Vegas.

Thomas Nelson & Sons Ltd., 36 Park Street, London W2Y 4DE, have published a pictorial booklet of simplified tune-up instructions for 1965-1971 Volkswagens, priced at £1.45.
