Nogaro HGPCA

Gary Pearson continued his successful season by taking David Pennell's Cooper-Climax T51 to victory in the Historic Grand Prix Cars Association race at Nogaro on 9/10 September. It was an all-Cooper result, with Pearson followed to the line at the end of the two-part race by Alan Miles (153) and Rod Jolley (T51). The first race had featured an incredible five-car battle. John Beasley (Cooper T45...

The Remaining Easter Events

Bristol M.C. & L.C.C. Lulsgate Race Meeting The day's sport at Lulsgate was just the thing that club members and their friends crave, and it is difficult to see why more such meetings cannot be held on similar disused airfields. The organisation was first class, even to public address and a beer tent, the racing most interesting, and they even had fencing to keep onlookers from the fastest...

Silverstone VSCC

Although 'new' cars were thin on the ground at the VSCC's traditional April season-opener at Silverstone, there was a healthy entry for the eleven-race programme and some close-fought finishes. And after Friday's wash-out test day it was a relief to find Saturday 13th calm and sunny all day. A capacity field of 34 starters contested the Brooks 1950's Sports Car Race, with the front row of Frank...

Excellent Racing in the West

The Bristol M.C. and L.C.C. Meeting at Lulsgate On April 15th, the Bristol folk repeated last year's excellent club racing, for sports cars and "500's," at Lulsgate airfield, using a circuit of 2.07 miles. This may be the last meeting at Lulsgate, but two similar meetings are scheduled at Castle Coombe this year. The only incident was in practice, when L. J. Barnes overturned his Austin Seven.  ...

Racing beats rain

Beautiful cars and good racing shone through at Brands as dreadful weather failed to spoil an exciting new fixture on the historic racing calendar.

VSCC: First Silverstone

Mark you, depending on the time at which you watched, you might have thought you were at a post-vintage gathering, as Harper's Jaguar won the 1950s sports/racing 10-lapper at 80 mph from Mason's Maserati and...

Around and about

Comment on the Racing and Club Scene Astonishing Russian If I had suggested a year ago that a Russian car was going to win two British racing championships I would have been considered, at the very least, something of an optimist. When the Group 1 regulations were announced few would have foreseen that there was any hope of the Moskvich 412 being remotely competitive. Apart, that is, from Satra...
