V.S.C.C. Pomeroy Memorial Trophy Competition

This contest was instituted by the late Laurence Pomeroy in memory of his father, who designed Vauxhall and Daimler cars of the vintage era. He gave a Rex Hays' model of a 1914 G.P. Vauxhall as a prize, stipulating that various tests be held to determine the best all-round touring car.

Panther Cars —

A small company with a big future "I know what people say about the Kallista . . it looks like a donkey, with those big ears", say Panther Cars' chief executive Young C Kim, in a reference to the aluminium splayed-out wings.

The Ferrari effect
