Veteran Edwardian Vintage

A section devoted to old-car matters The Life and Times of Montie Grahame-White The days of the true motoring pioneers are now so far distant that it is important not to overlook them. All aspects of the game were so very different then from those applying even in what we, today, call the vintage years. While much has been recorded about pioneers such as Charles Jarrott (who wrote "Ten Years of...

Club news

etta• /lewd BUGATTI OWNERS' CLUB The Welsh trial attracted nineteen The Welsh trial attracted nineteen starters in spite of the start being so far from town. Pen-y-Bryn is a tricky hill with three-quarters of a mile of slippery surface, which eaussd four failures. Treveriog was not troublesome and the whole entry sailed up, and Glynceiriog stopped only one car, though it had some nasty bends. The...

Reports of Recent Events

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. Again indicative of the present-day interest in motor sport, 96 entries came in for...

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...

November Journey

A Citroën "Big Fifteen" Proves a Thoroughly Satisfactory Family Car on a Hurried Excursion to the West Country and Wales Motoring journalists, when they are not being feasted sumptuously prior to being shown a new car or accessory for which publicity is sought (who first had the bright thought, I wonder, of "feeding the brutes" before letting them put pens to paper - or chisels to stone ?) are,...

Worth looking at…

It is pleasing that Smiths Motor Accessories are continuing their series of "Worth Looking At…" advertisements wherein they fit fashion model to new car to draw attention to a facia (the car's not the girl's) equipped with Smiths instruments. Taking a cue from these layouts, the owner of a Ford Consul Classic will look for a wind-swept brunette in a casual, long-sleeved sweater, the sportsman in...

2 C.V. Citroen's 100 Ascents Of Bwlch-Y-Groes

Air-cooling vindicated in R.A.C.-observed trial In 1925 the Rover Company was awarded the Dewar Trophy, that coveted award presented by Lord Dewar in 1906 to commemorate annually the most outstanding performance accomplished in Certified Trials observed by the R.A.C.

Unsolved problems One of the problems to which enthusiasts are wont to devote quite a deal of attention is what becomes of classic racing cars when their racing days are finished. Anthony Heal has made that puzzle rather easier for us than it used to be. But there are still many gaps, and the "Chittys" are worrying the knowledgeable quite a bit just now. I believe that someone bought a spare...

Aston Martin Hat-Trick in B.A.R.C. 9-Hour Sports-Car Race

David Brown’s Aston Martins finished first and third in the Nine-Hour Race at Goodwood on August 20th, with the lone Ecurie Ecosse D-type Jaguar as meat in the Feltham sandwich. The race, revived after a lapse last year, bringing Le Mans atmosphere to Sussex, has always been won by Aston Martin. This year the field of 35 promised a battle between three four-cylinder 3-litre Ferraris, three...

The adventure of the ill-fated Singers

Ill-fated Singer No. 37 driven by S. C. H. Davis crashes into Norman Black's team car during the 1935 Ulster TT. Both were eliminated by steering ball-joint failure, but on different laps, and previously A. H. Langley's Singer, in the same team, had crashed for the same reason—the fourth Singer was then withdrawn. Davis was wearing a crash-hat but it was wrenched off all in this remarkable...
