Cars I Have Owned And Raced

This article, by R. King-Clark, was the opening chapter in his as yet unpublished book about his extensive flying in his aero-planes, a Miles Gypsy Ill Hawk G-ACT D and a Miles IIA Whitney Straight G-AERS, and his military career but it is so interesting I decided MOTOR SPORT should publish it. Lt Col King-Clark's young brother "Cuffy" was also an enthusiast, running an Ulster A7, a 1928 20/25 hp...

It was known as RAF Westhampnett, was an ancillary to the main Fighter Command station at Tangmere, and was used almost exclusively for Spitfires.

The end of Goodwood

The B.R.D.C. and Silverstone Circuits Ltd., while deeply regretting the decision of the Goodwood Road Racing Company to close the Goodwood circuit, would wish to welcome the B.A.R.C. to Silverstone during 1967 and beyond, both as clients and as friendly associates. The two clubs, B.A.R.C. and B.R.D C. have similar objects, and their joint general outlook should do nothing but good for motoring...

Letters from readers

Real racing ircuits Sir, I should like to endorse enthusiastically Denis Jenkinson's remarks concerning .real" racing circuits contained in his article "Reflections on a Grand Prix" (p.784 July issue). From the other end of the competitive continuum, as a club racing competitor in the increasingly popular MG Car Club and BARC/MGOC championship series, I and many of my friends feel like yelling "...

Vintage to Classic Miscellany

Mystery Bugatti

The New Scientist reports a single-seater Bugatti on view at a new London Transport Museum. Some years ago a motoring paper told of the same car as being a Type 23, saying it was a one-off raced at Brooklands in 1925 by a Capt Middleton D'Este, who threw in the towel after a few such outings, although the Bugatti was said to have remained intact, if unused, for many years, until it was...
