Sir, In the never-ending controversy that goes on in the motoring Press about the respective merits of British and foreign cars, how rarely is the " K.3" M.G. put forward in support of the home-produced car. I feel that an article about these supremely successful 1,100-c.c. cars would be much appreciated by readers of Motor Sport. How many people remember the great successes gained by the "K.3s...

Book Reviews

"GRAND PRIX RACING FACTS AND FIGURES," by George Monkhouse. (238 pp., 42s. Foulis and Co., 7. Milford Lane, W.C.2.) In this beautifully produced typically-Foulis book, George Monkhouse surveys Grand Prix racing from 1894 to the present day. Inevitably he covers much the same ground as other writers such as Rose, Pomeroy and Karslake, but this he is well aware of ; indeed, he makes generous...

Letters from readers

Sir, We have for a long time now been discussing the future of our Sport: "Motor Racing After the War." Well, there are a number of things that we must do.

We must try to get the ban lifted, so that we can race on...

Letters from readers

Sir, Whilst I found Mr. Hampton's article very interesting, I would like to say that I entirely agree with Mr. A.F. Brookes in both his letters to Motor Sport. Mr. Clutton was, I think, the first to sweep aside all British sports cars, presumably because there is nothing quite comparable with Bugatti and Lago Special Darracq, which I suppose is true. But that gentleman also admitted in his...

Letters from readers

Sir, Is it possible for you to enquire of Motor Sport readers whether any official photographs or snapshots are available of a Shelsley hybrid called the Shipton Special?

The Shipton Special comprised a "23/60" Vauxhall engine in a Coventry...

"Busman's Holiday"-II

The Editor Drives a Further Selection of Different Motor Cars THE longer you defer a holiday the more reluctant you become to resume the daily routine at its conclusion, so perhaps I am fortunate that my duties as Editor of MOTOR SPORT give me but little time for vacations, if they do allow me the pleasure and excitement of occasionally taking a "busman's holiday" by exchanging the Editorial desk...

Club news

750 Club They aver that all good things must come to an end, and, now that the basic petrol ration has been withdrawn, we shall get no more car-gathering 750 Club meetings until we have won the war. So that held in warm sunshine at the "Osterley" on June 7th was unusually well attended and universally made the most of. Perhaps the finest car present was that of he of the vivid shirt and...
