Winter Verzons

It has been said that pleasure follows pain. On New Year's Day this was true for those who drove to The Verzons near Ledbury for Mark Garfitt's celebration of the coming season of 39 varied VSCC fixtures, because an icy morning gave way to a perfect winter's day. By mid-day the car park for proper motor cars was crammed — and, remember, similar VSCC thanksgivings were happening at 11 other venues...

Cars in Books

This time, thanks to a reader, Mr. J. H. Dunn of Weybridge, we are able to quote a rather luridly written passage from "The Log of the Maken", by Ian Nicolson, which will be of interest to members of the Morgan Three-Wheeler Club. But we hope they will not emulate the drive described:— "A tiny car hurtles down the Dover Road. As it roars past policemen, they instinctively reach to their tunic...

SPORTING EVENTS OF THE MONTH. Gloucestershire, Lancashire and Yorkshire, Surrey, and Warwickshire. TO judge from the enthusiasm with which thos( motoring sportsmen entered for the few sporting events which are organised during the winter months, it would seem that there is room for more, and a strong likelihood that were others to be promoted, their success would not long be in doubt.

THE SOUTHERN SCOTT SCRAMBLE. Many Spills in the Camberley, Club's Roughriders' Event. By ARNOLD RADCLYFFE. LOOKING back to March 14th, we think that if we • say "Thank goodness, it did not rain ! " all who were present at the meeting of the Camberley Club, especially the competitors, will endorse that view.

CHOOSING A SPORTS MOUNT AT OLYMPIA. By A MOTOR CYCLING CORRESPONDENT. THE majority of motor cyclists, speedmen in particular, have their own ideas as to what constitute the cardinal virtues of sporting machines, for which reason it is somewhat difficult to offer any real advice upon such a subject as "The Selection of a Sports Mount at Olympia."
