F.750 Ladies Race

Sir, In your October issue you were kind enough to reprint a letter I had published in the 750 Bulletin in my search for sponsors for the annual Reliant 750 Formula Ladies Race to be held at Snetterton.

White Elephantitis

An Edwardian overhead-camshaft 25/30 MaudslayShot in colour at its old stamping ground I had not been on safari for some time, not, in fact, since May 1970 ("A Tale of Two Panhards") but I had been keeping a hunter's eye open for anything else worth pursuing. The trouble is, white-elephant cars, beasts excitingly big and sufficiently rare not to be commonplace at every Club meet, are, like animal...
