Pre-war Austin Sevens

The Vintage Austin Register, 750 M.C. and Cambridge Vintage A.7 Club have made valiant attempts to bring together pre-war Austin Sevens.

THE HUNDRED-MILE RACE AT SOUTHPORT After weeks of unpleasant weather the Saturday of August 8th dawned without a cloud in the sky, and a hot sun, tempered by a cool breeze from the sea, lit up the vast expanse of sand at South port.

A Section Devoted to Old-Car Matters THE V.S.C.C. OULTON PARK RACE MEETING (June 25th) PERHAPS the best of the Vintage S.C.C. race meetings, this fixture fell on the last Saturday in flaming June, so naturally it poured with rain most of the day.
