Vintage Silverstone

The Club Silverstone season was opened on May 1st by the V.S.C.C., when a record attendance was achieved. In the One-Hour High-Speed Trial a good field, divided into classes, circulated with varying degrees of speed and reliability. Most of the cars qualified. The vintage Aston Martins of Edwards and Mennell were driven well, the former leaning out on corners. A. E. Griffin's 1929 12/50 Alvis "...

The Remaining Easter Events

Bristol M.C. & L.C.C. Lulsgate Race Meeting The day's sport at Lulsgate was just the thing that club members and their friends crave, and it is difficult to see why more such meetings cannot be held on similar disused airfields. The organisation was first class, even to public address and a beer tent, the racing most interesting, and they even had fencing to keep onlookers from the fastest...

Last month in a stop-press report of the MAC/VSCC Shelsley Walsh hill-climb, which precluded personal proof reading, I wrote of Rowley's 1913 5.6-litre Schneider, describing it correctly as a Th. Schneider. But a lino operator, believing he was being helpful, made this into "Thomas Schneider" and thus perpetuated a nonsense over my initials, to which no writer takes kindly; I am quite capable of...

Charles Goodacre on Austin Racing Cars

A very interesting lecture, illustrated by lantern slides, was given by Charles Goodacre, ex-Austin racing driver, to the 750 Club on January 5th. Goodacre had a great deal to do with the development of the "works" Austin racing cars and, although he apologised for any errors consequent on having to think back a great many years, his talk was not only extremely interesting, but his replies to...

Letters from Readers

Sir, Capt. John Moon, in his interesting article on the Jeep, stated that a few with four-wheel steering were made. Actually, only 50 A4s, four-wheel drive, four-wheel steering, were made in 1941. They simply had a normal front axle assembly at the rear, with the steering of front and rear axles effected and coupled by a steering transfer box. Possibly the technique required for handling this...

Veteran Edwardian Vintage

A Section Devoted to Old-Car Matters VSCC at Prescott, August 11th: The Vintage SCC was lucky with the weather for its once-a-year hill-climb at the Bugatti OC course at Prescott, the meeting being run off without incident before a slightly smaller "gate" than last year. Once again Alan Cottam's A-type fue-injection, de Dion-axled Connaught made FTD, although it did not better its own VSCC...

BW's 5 Series

Barrie Williams has emerged the winner of the generously-sponsored Renault 5 Elf Turbo Cup. After taking the Philips Pole Premium award, Williams won in the rain at Oulton Park at 73.78 mph, from Philips and McGovern. Cox failed to start after overturning his Renault in avoiding the spinning Moss (no relation!) in practice, but only two retired from the field of thirty. Kay won the £180 Michelin...
