The Reminiscences of Reggie Tongue

A most absorbing account, by the well-known racing driver, of the cars which have served him both in races and on the road.

Shelsley Walsh's 90th

In the old-fashioned English summer we have been experiencing this year, the 90th birthday of the oldest speed venue in this country, Shelsley Walsh in the peaceful Teme Valley, was celebrated on August 13. It was also the occasion of the 13th round of the RAC Hillclimb Championship — the 12th, at Craigantlet, another long-lived venue, had been abandoned after the fatal accident to Mark Colton in...

Jersey Summing-Up

The stop-press which Motor Sport published last month of the Jersey Race covered the outstanding features of that rather dismal event and not much remains to be said. The fatal accident to K. W.
