Veteran to classic

War year All this interest in the papers and on TV about Britain's entry into the war fifty years ago gives us an excuse for recalling a little of what motoring was like in 1939. What we were doing then cannot be more boring than pictures of people filling sandbags, trying on gas-masks or sprinting towards air raid shelters. There had been a hint of impending disaster when the German drivers...

West Essex C.C. Speed Trials On March 26th the W.E.C.C. held speed trials at Boreham airfield, timing cars in pairs over a standing kilometre—an ambitious event for a new club. They hope later to hold races there, so that Boreham, near Chelmsford, can be added to the British venues listed Editorially last month.

There were three main events,...

THREE TRIALS The Brighton and Hove 12 Hour Team Trial.
