by "Baladeur" The Editor of Motor Sport is an indulgent man. That much is obvious from the fact that he is prepared, month after month, to provide this skid-patch whereon his contributor "Baladeur" may perform his evolutions. At the same time he has been known to remind me that not all his readers live in that world of the past which I appear continually to inhabit. And, completely undeterred, I...

VSCC at play in Weybridge

The Vintage Sports Car Club took its winter driving-tests to Brooklands on January 13; rather early in the year, weather-wise for such frolics, you might think. Then think again. The tests for the Monte Carlo Rally used to be practised there before the war, and the JCC held its DTs at the track in February, experiencing snow on one occasion. Anyway, 80 entries were received by the VSCC, proving...

VSCC Curborough

The weekend after the Colerne speed trials, the VSCC held its annual speed trial meeting at Curborough near Lichfield. The course is quite different, involving as it does several corners to reverse the cars back onto the straight along which they started. However, if there is an element of 'driving-test' about it, this is no worse than at those speed-trials which once took place at a Croydon...

IMSA GTP championship

Night and day! Derek Bell's particular blend of skill and good luck earned him his third victory at Daytona, and his eighth 24-hour race laurels in all, in the opening round of the 1989 IMSA GTP Championship. The Pagham driver's personal technique and car sympathy can only be one factor in this phenomenal record of victories; the other is to be in the right car at the right time, with co-drivers...

Lunch with... Brian Redman

Simon Taylor talks to the man who, almost unwillingly, became one of the world's fastest sports car racers, with multiple wins including the Targa Florio History takes a lot of notice of Formula 1, and not enough notice of the rest. Here's a great British driver remembered by F1 only because he turned down an offer from Ferrari, and was lucky to escape with his life from an accident in which he...

A Weekend of vintage Welsh

A major happening in the crowded VSCC calendar is the weekend spent trialing up the stiffer Welsh fields and by-ways, a fixture dating back to 1939, when the winner was Clive Windsor-Richards, driving a dope-fed 30/98, second another racing-driver, Joan Richmond in her Lancia Lambda, an A7 third. They were tough then, the cars including a 1901 Benz whose driver sent a final telegram to Presteigne...

The other life of Brian

Brian Redman's Formula One record is poor compared to his sparkling sportscar career, yet he preferred to race single-seaters — and had plenty of success in them, too. So exactly why did he turn down Ferrari, asks Tim Scott? As a sportscar driver, on his day Brian Redman was a match for the very best: Ickx, Siffert or Rodriguez. But there is an incongruity in his CV. At a time when top drivers...

VSCC Winter DTs

The usual site of this event was shifted this year from the heights of the Enstone plateau to the spaciousness of the Westcott Venture Park, where there were excellent facilities for signing-on, lunch, etc, and the 12 tests were laid out on hard-standing, although many of the pull-up areas were on loose soil. There was so much ground available that a map was needed for finding these tests, which...

Welsh Vintage

For the popular VSCC Welsh Trial of October 10/11, 116 cars were entered. Competitors are able not only to test their driving skills but penetrate into some rather nice scenery. Presteigne High Street was well infested with aged motor cars, but fortunately is now by-passed; here evening festivities were laid on by Sotheby's at the ancient Radnorshire Arms, the Club's HQ. There were plenty of...
