The VMCC will hold its second leg of the National Grass Track Championship at Sibley Circuit, Iver, bucks., from 11 a.m. on September 13th, for those who want to see a bit of old-time motorcycle racing. This year’s “Lost Causes” Rally takes place at Beaulieu on September 20th. Details from : J. Watkinson, “Blyth”, Shepherds Road, Bartley, Southampton. The well-known Andover Traction Engine Rally will be held on Step ember 12.13th, and the Austin 7 Register congregates at Stanford Hall on September 20th. The one-make ploy grows–at the VSCC Thruxton Race Meeting on September 12th there is to be an Alvis Parade, to mark the 50th anniversary of this make; Sir Francis Samuelson (surely the oldest holder of a competition licence?) will also run his 1914 TT Sunbeam. Neil Corner has added the ex-Sears’ 1914 TT Sunbeam to his growing stable of truly worthwhile history racing cars. The historic cars collected by the Rootes Group, including the twin-engined 1,000-h.p. 200-m.p.h. Sunbeam, are to be sold by auction for Chrysler UK at Measham on September 12th. We hope sincerely that these cars will remain in Britain. The vendors are British Car Auctions Ltd.

Last year’s enjoyable vintage rally at Wycombe Air Park, Booker, near Marlow, was quite informal. This year it is to be repeated but on a much more organised level. Indeed, entries have closed. There should be plenty to see on September 27th, as the event is jointly organised by Booker and the Uxbridge & Dist. VVS, with support promised from the VSCC, VCC, and VAC, the last-named providing aeroplanes of a suitable period, such as Swordfish, hart, Spitfire, Eindekker, Tiger Moth, Comper Swift, Stampes, Leopard and Puss Moths, Luton Minor, Moth Minor, Piper Cub, Morane 230, etc. There will be displays of aerobatics, parachute jumps, bands, a steam organ, joy rides, etc. Philip Mann will show his Yak II. So book the Booker date now! Gates open 10a.m., start 1 p.m.

A pre-war Morris Minor is in regular use in Radnorshire. The current issue of the Frazer Nash Chain Gang Gazette contains a fine picture of the racing GN Kim II with all-weather equipment in place, ready for “Archie” Frazer-Nash to drive to the Skegness speed-trials, and the summer number of the BOC journal Bugatics has an erudite article by H. G. Conway on the Type 57G Bugattis and related models. Bill Wilks drove his Lotus 16 at VSCC Oulton Park, not as published.
