The appeal of the Frazer-Nash

[Peter J. Robertson-Rodger has just purchased another Frazer-Nash and here explains why he finds these cars – which share with the old-school Bentleys the distinction of being in perhaps greater demand now than before the war – quite irresistible. – Ed.] There are few, I feel, who would deny that 'Nash ownership is a habit easily formed, which, if left unchecked, can very soon become a cult. For...

V.S.C.C. Seaman Trophies meeting at Oulton Park – June 17th

The heat brought marshals in shorts, girls in sun-tops and mini-skirts, babies in prams, and one little doggy to this always enjoyable day's sport at the picturesque setting of the Cheshire circuit. This feast of vintagery was marred, however, by the fatal accident in practice to M. Johnson (whose real name was Mike Chipperfield). His ex-Gardner Connaught hit a tree at Old Hall corner and was...

A letter from New South Wales

[The following news-letter is from R.A.D.

Bravo, Ettore! Those beautiful products of be Patron of Molsheim are generally conceded to be without equal in everything except reliability. So that it only remains to prove the Bugatti reliable to establish it as, perhaps, the greatest of all sporting cars. Very well, listen to this. At a farm near Scarborough a Type 40 Bugatti not only acts as the hack car, but gives yeoman service carrying...

G.N. Gen.

The touring G.N. has, we fear, without exception, gone from amongst us, although MacLagen of the "Scuderia Chemvamo" is hoping to revive an example bought recently from T.P. Breen. Peter O'Reilly was one of the last persons to appear with such a car, but its remains are now useful only as spares. Nevertheless, the G.N. in sprint form is almost certainly going to be with us in post-war sprint...

Two one-hour high-speed trials preceded the races, the first for 1,100-c.c. and 1 1/2-litre cars, the second for 3-litre and...

The M.C.C. Silverstone Meeting

The first car race was a Five-lap scratch contest, Wood's XK120 leaving the issue in doubt only when he went off the course at Stowe on the first lap. He quickly regained the lead and won...
