Leaper, who was a draughtsman with this firm from 1910 until 1922, in order to glean some details. The Company took its name from the...

Memories of the Match-Race

Any fresh information about Rolls-Royce history is getting very hard to come by, and although new things about Brooklands come to light from time to time, even this source is drying up.

Cox, formerly Car Sales Manager to Rolls-...

Another Unjust Tax Many people who spectate at speed venues this year will grumble at the admission prices they will be required to pay. Consequently, rather than take sides, or try to determine whether or not the crowds that pack the terraces above the Madeira Drive at Brighton, line up in their hundred-thousands behind the linked arms of voluntary marshals at Silverstone, or who crowd the...

We hasten to remind them that from the earliest days small cars have taken a prominent part in competition motoring. Races for voiturettes received support from famous manufacturers and are the subject of an erudite book by Kent Karslake. The early J.C.C. 200-Mile Races at Brooklands, the Bol d...

Brooklands reopens—for one nostalgic afternoon

The "Hand and Spear," June 26th. THE idea of a re-union between those who remember the old Motor Course at Weybridge came to Bill Boddy and Dudley Gahagan three years ago after attending a B.M.C.R.C. Brooklands Re-union organised by Rex Judd at the "Hand & Spear," where so many Brooklands rider's and drivers used to quench their monumental thirsts. It took place this year on June 26th and was...
