A car which will function satisfactorily for long periods on the main roads of this country will not always behave so well under the...

Cars I have owned

[Here is another article of this popular series, this time by peter clark, a truly versatile amateur, well known for his le mans successes with the h.r.g., his trials exploits and his interest in edwardians.—ed.] My first velocipede was a B.S.A. three-wheeler sports, chiefly notable in that it was bought (secondhand) from H. M. Bentley and Partners. It was not very fast, about 65 flat out, but...

Something different

The Alpine Rally A NUMBER of my friends kept disappearing, saying, "We're going on holiday," and when they returned they talked about the change from the normal routine of their lives being as good as a rest cure, and kept asking me when I was going on holiday. Now, for as long as I can remember, my life has been one long holiday, watching motor races every weekend, all over Europe, enjoying...

An Alpine Holiday

The Coupe Des Alpes and the new Sunbeam Alpine Even motoring journalists need a holiday, although we are often told that our job is one long holiday. So we decided to take the Sprite, now with 7,000 miles on the clock, on a Continental tour, but being enthusiasts as well as journalists we arranged the dates to coincide with one or two motoring events on the Continent. The main one of these was...

The French way

Sir, I feel that with the advent of 1992 and all that, it's time we took a hint from the French. They have an organisation called the VEC which is, I believe, a fairly direct equivalent to the VSCC.
