Motor Show Review

(NEC, October 18th) So, the Cavalcade concluded - incidentally, the Midland Motor Museum ran Wright's 1951 Frazer Nash in it as well as their Mercedes-Benz - my next task was to go to the NEC Motor Show, in satisfactorily multi-cylinder style in the glass-roofed Editorial Rover 3500 (it has recently been Skyported, of which more next month). A press ticket did not enable one to park very near the...

Road car news

New division at Jaguar D-type homage spearheads specials department | by Andrew Frankel Jaguar has announced its own in-house ‘Special Vehicle Operations’ unit and confirmed its first product, a 250 limited-run homage to the D-type, as its opening bid. The new car is based on the F-type roadster and is called Project 7 in honour of Jaguar’s current tally of seven wins at Le Mans. But while...

"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...

V.S.C.C. Pomeroy Memorial Trophy Competition

This contest was instituted by the late Laurence Pomeroy in memory of his father, who designed Vauxhall and Daimler cars of the vintage era. He gave a Rex Hays' model of a 1914 G.P. Vauxhall as a prize, stipulating that various tests be held to determine the best all-round touring car. Now that Laurence Pomeroy, too, is dead, this competition constitutes a fitting memorial to both father and son...

Allegro - Sweet music from Austin

Like some glamorous actress British Leyland's Austin Allegro made its debut to the press in a glare of brilliant theatrical lighting in a huge convention hall near Marbella, Southern Spain, a couple of months ago. As distractingly gorgeous model girls displayed the cars on the circular stage in a beautifully executed four-wheel ballet, Lord Stokes, George Turnbull and Filmer Paradise gave sales...

Earls Court impressions

The 1956 London Motor Show is notable for modified models rather than exciting new cars. British manufacturers have adopted automatic transmission more readily than Continental companies—besides the cars listed on page 683, Daimler, Ford and Morris can provide "automation" on their six-cylinder cars—picking American brains to do so (Rover provides the exception). However, automatic transmissions...

"The Ghost Car"

Some Notes on a Brooklands Calthorpe The subject of this discourse was dubbed "The Ghost Car" by the Daily Express, when that newspaper published a photograph of it, I assume on account of its thin, wraith-like outline, because there was otherwise nothing unusual about the car, in the context of the Brooklands racing light-cars of the period, although as you will see from the photograph, this was...

Letters from readers, cont.

PRICES IN PARIS Several readers' letters have been published recently, both in MotorSport and in other motoring journals, comparing the merits of English and Continental cars. Mr. Cropp (August 1960) prefers his Rover 100 to a Citroen ID19 as many other drivers may, but he considers them comparable in price. In England this is true, but even though the Citroen is assembled in England it carries a...

Matters Of Moment

The London Motor Show On October 16th another great Motor Exhibition opened at Earls Court. The opening ceremony was performed by the Prime Minister, the Rt. Hon. Harold Macmillan, M.P. In his speech Mr. Macmillan paid warm tribute to the British Motor Industry on its splendid export record. Such a record is indeed worthy of praise; but let us not be too complacent. The fact is that this is a...

Rebuilding on the rebound

Not for the first time, An Vatanen feels the need to rebuild his career. He did it after his near fatal 1985 accident in Argentina, and after being unceremoniously sacked by Mitsubishi at the end of 1990, but now the amiable Finn faces one of his greatest psychological challenges. Shortly after finishing second on the 1990 1000 Lakes Rally, he was relieved of his World Rally Championship status...
