Round the Clubs

This Club are also the holders of the Morris Garages Challenge Cup which is competed for annually in-competition with the O.U.M.C.C. WATERLOO AND DISTRICT MOTOR CLUB.

Smaller is beautiful

Few new car launches have much sense of excitement today, but that for Aston Martin's Project X, which we now know will enter production as the DB7, was a satisfying exception. The two-plus-two is destined to retail for "below £80,000". The superbly evocative design is the creation of former Ford and Ghia designer Ian Callum, and is scheduled to sell from the beginning of 1994. Dealers are now...

Reports of Recent Events

M.C.C. Sporting Trial This year's Sporting Trial of the Motor Cycling Club, which started from Buxton on October 22nd, attracted 88 car entries and also the rain, which rendered it a difficult event, only seven competitors gaining First-Class Awards. The hills included Washgates, Checks, Pilsbury, Jenkins Chapel, Litton Slack, Taddington Moor and a modified version of Cow Low. The trial went with...

Cars in books

There is a rather surprising number of motoring references, many of special interest to Rolls-Royce enthusiasts, in Bendor—The Golden Duke of Westminster by Leslie Field, (Weidenfeld & Nicholson, 1983),a biography of the fabled richest man in England. We learn that the Duke's first car was a Mercedes, which he appears to have used in 1901 or 1902, being described as a skilful and daring...

Veteran to Classic - Roesch and the 105

The Brilliance of Georges Roesch When I asked to see the engine of one of the elegant Talbot 105s pictured above, its owner said to me, "Which side? One is tame, the other very tame." The mechanical minimalism of the six cylinder 3-litre engine was quite a revelation; on one side a flat wall of steel, and a row of six spark plugs, on the other a parsimonious-looking single carburettor, and an...

A talk with Baron de Graffenried

Taking the positive step of retiring from motor racing is obviously an extremely difficult thing for an international driver to do, and it would be pleasant to think that some of the current Formula One and sports car competitors will still be seen in the paddock at major meetings long after they've stopped actively participating. The immediate post-war era is still represented by a number of...

A History of the Sizaire-Berwick -- 1913-1925

By G. R. G. Berwick In 1912 a chassis by the French engineer Sizaire was fitted with a body by F. W. Berwick & Company in London; the first Sizaire-Berwick had been made. The Sizaire brothers, Maurice and George, were already well known from their partnership with the Naudin brothers in the production of the Sizaire-Naudin car. By a convenient division of labour Maurice designed cars and...

The Undertype Steam Road Waggon

"The Undertype Steam Road Waggon" by Maurice A. Kelly. 242 pp. 11 1/4 in. x 8/3/4 in. (Goose & Son, 94, Victoria Street,Basingstoke, Hampshire, RG21 3B1 £12.50.) Sometimes one reads a particularly interesting and praiseworthy book to which a successor is promised, but it never appears. Not so in the case of Maurice Kelly's industrious research into one-make steam-waggon history. We reviewed...

V.S.C.C Silverstone Meeting (April 19th)

With 150 entries ranging from a Chummy Austin to the 10½-litre Delage the first Vintage S.C.C. race meeting of 1969 was a complete success, which good weather and prompt organisation endorsed. There was a good deal of frenzied work going on in the Paddock beforehand, however. Giles' G.N. broke the crank of its A.B.C. engine, Rankin ran No. 1 big-end on the Merlin crank of his Riley 9 Special and...

Sprint events twenty years ago

A condensed history of club events as they were during the last season racing was allowed on the public roads of this country. The days before the ban on speed events on public roads are, to many people, almost legendary and, with thoughts of post-war planning in mind, it seems opportune to glance backwards to those days, if only to see how popular club events were twenty years ago. The chance...
