BOC Prize-Giving

The Bugatti Owners Club held its annual Prize-Giving Luncheon at the Chateau Impney at Droitwich on November 26th last year, with their new Chairman Barry Price in control. We went in a Porsche 928, expecting to mingle with many exotic motor-cars. But the ice that morning had kept all the Bugattis at home, for fear of salt-pollution, and the car-park had only a light dusting of Ferraris and...

All in a year's work

In which the Deputy Editor reviews his 1979 motoring activities  It doesn't feel as if a year has passed since I last wrote this annual review, and looking back through my diary for this flash of time I wonder how I have managed to fit in the long list of cars driven, the countries and events visited, the production of 12 issues of this magazine and a semblance of relatively normal life as well....

Three GNs

An interview with Stafford East One of the articles which excited me very much when I was a small boy, reading avidly all the motoring papers I could lay my hands on, was that headed "The Fastest Cyclecar in The World!" which appeared, with nine enticing illustrations, in The Light Car & Cyclecar on June 16th, 1920. It was a description of Captain A.G. Frazer-Nash's famous GN "Kim", which the...

That Edwardian Race

The VSCC Edwardian race at the two-day Oulton Park Meeting last July aroused so much enthusiasm and favourable comment that I am encouraged to take another look at it. The entry was varied and excellent but could have been even more enjoyable. Of the big Edwardians which made such an impression when the VSCC first introduced them to spectators in 1936 some were missing. For instance, the 200hp...

Bugantics

• The club magazine least affected by the vagaries of fashion is Bugantics, the house journal of the Bugatti O C — its cover has remained the same since before the war. Prices of the older originals, however, have ballooned, prompting the Club to organise a set of reprints of all 50 pre-war issues from 1931-39. They are the same size, with covers in the same card, plus paper mono covers for...

Fifty Not Out

Bugatti Owner's Club's Prescott Fiftieth Anniversary Celebrations on May 21-22 (supported by Christie's) were a thorough success. The weather behaved, the queues to the hill were the longest ever, and a great many of those who have known Prescott from its opening in 1938 either drove up the full course in appropriate cars or were driven up — as I was in Dudley Gahagan's T37. There was a large...

Veteran to classic

Repeat run The 750 Motor Club held its very first run n 1939, when 24 Austin 7s were led from Virginia Water to Newlands Corner by founder and Motor Sport Editor Bill Boddy and his A7 henchman Tom Lush in a Ruby. This was remembered on April 2 this year when the Brooklands Section made a repeat run in the opposite direction, with a treasure-hunt in the morning, lunch at the impressive Holloway...
