Bolide in a china shop

In these days of "shortest and most direct route" and, even worse, of "alternative means of transport," a long road journey is a rare treat. However, by good fortune the more usual 7 m.p.g. flying ferry wasn't to be had on a recent occasion, and much less fuel was with difficulty obtained for a spot of motoring. Without any embellishments, 300 miles in a little over 24 hours was a pleasing...

Club news

750 Club The 750 Club meeting at the "Osterley" on May 3rd went over big, as usual, many useful contacts being made, much motoring conversation indulged in, and, best of all, George Monkhouse showed his inimitable films of Grand Prix racing of the 1935-38 period. There is no gainsaying the value of these meetings as a break from the monotony or excitement of war-effort existence, and everyone who...

Shall we go motor-bicycling?

The indications are that if a lot of us want to go places after the war we assuredly shall Which line of thought has prompted Cecil Clutton to review modern motor-cycle design in another of his inimitable and valuable articles, giving, also, some consideration to what the future has in store. – Ed.   Never having been a motor-cyclist before the war I have at least to thank the Axis for...

Racing At Whitsun

THE Whit-Saturday Goodwood Meeting of the B.A.R.C. attracted a relatively small crowd, perhaps on account of memories of the Silverstone congestion of a week earlier, possibly because of the Derby. The atmosphere of pre-war Brooklands was most enjoyable and the Sussex constabulary were ready and willing to exercise skill in coping with traffic congestion, should it have arisen. The main...

Letters from readers

Sir, In the never-ending controversy that goes on in the motoring Press about the respective merits of British and foreign cars, how rarely is the " K.3" M.G. put forward in support of the home-produced car. I feel that an article about these supremely successful 1,100-c.c. cars would be much appreciated by readers of Motor Sport. How many people remember the great successes gained by the "K.3s...

In The M.G. Tradition

The Series-MGA Coupe Constitutes a Safe Fast Car, with First-Class Handling Qualities, Excellent Brakes and Decidedly Useful Performance It was Motor Sport's pleasure during April to carry out a lengthy road-test of the modern M.G. sports car, in the form of a white MGA coupe with red upholstery. This little 1½-litre sports two-seater was driven by various experienced drivers for a total distance...

Cars I have owned

[In which Robert W. Edbrooke says just what he thinks of a number of different makes and types. – Ed.] I have little or no qualification for this opus, having owned neither a Bentley nor a Lagonda, while, as a resident member of the C.U.A.C., my activities were crippled by a suspended driving licence. Nevertheless, between periods of persecution by divers magistrates I have motored. My first...

Letters from readers

Sir, When, in my recent article "Cars I have Owned," I expressed my own views on the always-controversial subject of British versus Continental cars, I half expected that someone would quickly write a spirited reply in defence of British productions. It would, I suppose, be a bad thing if this was not so; but it was never my intention or wish to embark on any sort of lengthy discussion through...

"Sporting Enthusiast"

Sir, Like your correspondent" Pierre," I, too, found that the female of the species is partial to sports cars. Unfortunately, I could not afford a Sprite, so I bought an M.G. TC, and I feel that I have gone one better (or worse, depending on one's point of view) than "Pierre" in finding an anti-necking vehicle. The first trouble I encountered was the laddering of stockings on the protruding door...
