Brooklands reunion Following the VSCC meeting at Silverstone, we drove to Weybridge for the Brooklands Society Annual Reunion. Staying at the famous Hand & Spear, we found Mr and Mrs Owen Wyn Owen, who had brought "Babs" on its trailer behind a Range Rover. The 27-litre Liberty-engined Parry Thomas LSR car ran on the banking once or twice, but it was not in a very good mood, a broken gearbox...

Veteran to classic -- VSCC Prescott

One of the Best With sunshine, large crowds spectating at both practice and the climbs, and a record entry of 230, the VSCC's annual speed hillclimb on August 4th at the delightful Bugatti OC's Prescott course was one of the best-ever. Anthony Mayman made best time in his ERA R4D, just below his record, with a truly smooth ascent (41.34 s). Best vintage time was made by a determined Julian Majzub...

V-C Miscellany

The Brooklands Museum Trust has a new idea for raising finance; which revives the thought that the Government or British Heritage or someone should long ago have saved the World's first motor course from destruction.
