A “Eurofund” set up for the new Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs, which is looking after the interests of users of old vehicles in the face of possible restrictive EEC legislation, already has £5323 from the HVCC and donations which include £1000 from each of the VCC and VSCC, and £1010 from the RREC; another £3000 has been promised, including £1000 sums from the VMCC and the National Traction Engine Trust.

The Federation’s first AGM will be held on October 22. Its preliminary research into the road usage of old vehicles in other European countries suggests that Luxembourg, Austria and Portugal are the most favourable, with generous tax concessions, but that the amount of restrictions which already exist are highly disturbing.

Fifty pre-1974 cars, mostly from the Historic Rally Car Register, competed in the seventh annual Coronation Rally based at Pembrey in August, ranging from a Ford V8 Pilot Roadster to an ex-London-Sydney Marathon 1800. Details of the Circuit of Ireland Retrospective on October 7-9 are available from M Jubb, 38 Longfield Road, St Andrews, Bristol BS7 9AG.

Jaguar Car Club and Jaguar Enthusiasts’ Club combine to stage an international spares day at Stoneleigh in Warwickshire on October 23, at which non-members will be welcome. The organiser is John Bridcutt, 23 Worcester Road, Great Malvern, Worcestershire WR14 4QY.

Stoneleigh’s Royal Showground is also the venue for the National Automobile and Restoration Show on October 8-9. Both days will feature club stands, trade stands and an autojumble.

Driving Member, the official journal of the Daimler & Lanchester Owners’ Club, has taken on a magazine-size format. Its August issue featured the Daimler Majestic Major, a car which impressed Motor Sport very favourably when we tested one and which our Managing Director owned for some years. The Club elected 58 new members in June, their cars ranging from 1933 LA10 Lanchester to 1978 Daimler 4.2 VdP Daimler Sovereign.

Exactly forty years after its inaugural meeting in the very same pub, the AC Owners Club plans a birthday gathering at the Red Cow in Hammersmith in February, in addition to the Malvern Weekend which has already been arranged. ACOC Competition Secretary is Ray Wilkinson, Oriana, 2 Roger Hey, Cheadle Hulme, Cheadle, Cheshire.

Lancia Motor Club’s Summer 1988 Journal features a 16-page supplement celebrating the Fulvia’s 25th anniversary.
