Another Ulmannism

If Pelmanism used to be a memory-training method, Ulmannism might be defined as trying to poke criticism at W.O. Bentley. Bentley-folk will recall how Alec Ulmann, the American historian, suggested that the Bentley BR1 and BR2 rotary aero-engines of the First World War were merely a crib of the French Clerget engine of the same type, and how Ulmann later suggested that Bentley had copied an...

V-E-V miscellany

— Arising from the photograph we published in the December 1983 issue, of the blower 4 1/2-litre Bentley bought new by the late T.G. Moore when he was the owner of Motor Sport, Mr A. Fielding writes to say that he owned this car up to 1958, when he sold it to Mr Carter in the States, not in 1952 as the previous correspondent thought. When he acquired the Bentley in 1955 it was very good...

"500 Progress" The suggested rules for 500-c.c. class contests laid down by the B.A.C. Motor Sports Clubs are by now well known and seem generally acceptable. We rather liked the idea of not permitting more than two cylinders, but whether or not real economy would have resulted from insisting on pump fuel is debatable, John Bolster, of course, believing that reliability can only be courted by...

Owner of Pullman Galleries, dealing in the rarest and most beautiful items of automobilia and transport interest Can you sum up your gallery’s focus? “We deal in late-Nineteenth and Twentieth Century objets de luxe from the world of cars, aviation and boats. Boys’ toys, in fact, as we’ve found that a car collector will usually also be interested in automotive painting and sculpture. And if he...

Letters from Readers

Sir, Indirectly through correspondence in Motor Sport I got a 1931 Straight Eight Lanchester sports saloon (chassis No. 8089) last autumn (in case I should never see again the Sedanca I lent to the Ministry of Aircraft Production for the duration 18 months ago). I licensed it for March and my wife and I used the month's basic on a couple of drives in one week. The car is kept at the garage of a ...

A monograph on perpendicular Rovers

Some notes on the now defunct P4 models I have wanted for a long time to be like Sherlock Holmes and write a monograph. So I decided to do one about those now-defunct Rover P4s which roam our roads in such considerable numbers that they are obviously going to survive for at least another decade. For this I was given valuable clues by Mr. H. B. Light, Rover's Company Historian. With the prevailing...

Cars I have owned

The first article on this subject, by Donald Munro in the April issue, proved so popular that we hope to include others by well-known personalities from time to time. The second of what we hope will be a series is presented herewith, the author being W. G. S. Wike, a very well-known member of the Northern Section of the Vintage S.C.C. "The owner knows most" is a very true saying, so these...

Unfair Advantage

Keith Duckworth, the supreme British racing-engine designer, is known to have had an aversion to supercharging and turbocharging. Graham Robson has made this clear in his fascinating book Cosworth, which MOTOR SPORT reviewed recently. Duckworth made this quite clear soon after the appearance of the first turbocharged F1 car, the Renault V6 RS01 of 1977. Although there were to be Cosworth...

MOTOR SPORT visits the oldest and most unique sports-car factory in the World IN THE PAST I have paid several visits to the Morgan Motor Company at Malvern Link in Worcestershire. I went there after the war to take delivery of a new Morgan 4/4. When its gearbox seized up and there were no spares for it I went down again, towing the stricken 4/4 and part-exchanging it for a Vanguard-engined Plus-4...
