To celebrate a century of Lagonda, the Lagonda Club has issued a most attractive 28 page book about plans for the occasion, covering the recent rally at Cockfosters, a four-day Northern Tour and continental Champagne Rally (already fully booked), Club displays at Coys Silverstone Meeting, a July Brooklands Fete and an Alpine Rally etc. This brochure has a history of what Lagondas did at Brooklands from 1909 to 1939 and an illustrated history of the make from 1898 to today. The cover is that wonderful colour depiction by Alan Feamley of Lagondas in the Paddock on a sunny day. The Club welcomes Invicta and Crossley owners and membership is obtainable from Colin Bulger, Witney House, London Road, Hartley Witney, Hants RG27 8RN (01252 845451).
The VSCC of Australia has carried out a roster of 781 members and their cars. The most popular make is MG, with 145, followed by Jaguar with a total of 62 while Alfa Romeo comes third. At the latest count in February the VSCC of America, founded in 1958, had 783 members, many of whom own more than one car.
Forthcoming fixtures to note: the next main VSCC event is the GP Itala Silverstone Meeting on April 24, followed on May 23 by the Richard Seaman Meeting at Donington, when John Surtees will drive a 1938 Mercedes-Benz W154 and Nick Heidfeld will demonstrate last year’s title winning McLaren-Mercedes.
