The Vintage SCC holds its last race meeting of the season at the challenging Cadwell Park circuit on August 26th with a full afternoon’s racing on the programme. We can expect the usual exciting contest for the Williams Trophy between two-seater GP cars in the eight lap scratch race, which Bugatti drivers usually try very hard to win from the Alfa Romeos etc, the French domiciled English driver, Grover Williams, having raced Bugatti cars before the war. Two ten lap scratch races devoted to pre-war and pre-1961 racing cars are also on the agenda and the Spero and Voiturette Trophies race will be run over five laps from scratch, as will the popular dice for Frazer Nash and GN cars. In addition there will be supporting four lap handicap and scratch races. The first race is at 1.30pm. The final VSCC race day, has now been cancelled meaning that Cadwell is the last chance to earn points.

The 8th International Triumph Spitfire Weekend will be held at the recreation park `Klein Vink’ in Arcen, in the province of Limburg (Holland) on the weekend of 1/2nd September where more than 600 Spitfires and GT6s are expected from all over Europe. On Saturday there will be a concours and on both days there will be many attractions such as a large spare parts market as well as several contests. On the Sunday there will be the traditional rally routed through the neighbouring countryside.

This annual meeting is open to non members as well. Details from Ina van Schaik, Pr. W Alexanderstraat 34, 4158 CM Deil, Holland.

The Manx Motor Racing Club have received a good entry for this year’s Manx Classic on September 19-22nd.

An important fixture on the club calendar is the Eight Clubs Race Meeting at Silverstone, in which long-standing clubs such as the 750MC and the Hants & Berks MC combine their activities. Note the date now — October 20th. The Hants & Berks MC continues its social round but is also active in marshalling at rallies as important as the Lombard RAC (November 25-28th). The Hon Secretary actually lives in Berkshire in contrast to other officials from Surrey, Hampshire and Bucks. He is Bill Bonney, 283 London Bridge Road, Woodley, Reading, RG5 4BE if any local enthusiasts are looking for an all-round motor club.

The 1990 Chatillon sur Chalaronne Beaujolais Rally is now being organised for November 14/15th and entry into the event is £250 for two people and car — extra passengers are an added cost of £125 each.
