It is startling how quickly each season marches long. It seems only yesterday that we found ourselves heading jubilantly for Silverstone in a Fiat 125, for the first V.S.C.C. Race Meeting of the year. Now both Silverstone and the V.S.C.C. Oulton Park races and Prescott hill-climb are over and only one 1968 speed fixture of this club remainsthe final Race Meeting, at which the winner of this year’s Motor Sport Brooklands Memorial Trophy Contest, and the two runners-up, will be resolved.

This year, on September 14th, the venue is not Castle Combe but the B.A.R.C. circuit at Thruxton, near Andover. Rather more convenient for those motoring aged cars from the London area, this should also prove a fast course with lots of flat-out bends for the majority of vintage racers, and new lap-records to set. Racing commences at 1 p.m. and the important events are the Spero and Voiturette Trophies Race over 8 laps from scratch, for 750-c.c. s/c and 1,100-c.c. atmospheric-induction cars, a 4-lap Edwardian Handicap, the 4-lap Light Car Handicap, and a 10-lap 23½-mile All-Comers’ Scratch Race, in which some very quick post-war historic machinery will be seen in action, headed perhaps by Cameron-Miller’s eagerly-awaited 3-litre CTF Maserati. These four races will be supported by a series of 4-lap Handicaps, so there will be all the usual enjoyable sights, sounds and scents at Thruxton this month.

Admission costs 7s. 6d. per person (gate money goes to the circuit owners, not to the V.S.C.C.), with a charge of 5s. extra for admission to the Paddock. Children under 14 will be admitted free and car parking is also free. Dogs are not allowed and entries have closed.
