British Bugatti Register

Encouraged by Hugh Conway, David Sewell has completed a Register of Bugattis in this country, badly needed since earlier editions, based on the original Register incorporated in "The Bugatti Book", had lapsed. The new list is full of interest and no doubt many non-Bugatti owners will want it, if only the better to identify Bugattis they see in action. Brief specifications and performance figures...

BOC Prize-Giving

The Bugatti Owners Club held its annual Prize-Giving Luncheon at the Chateau Impney at Droitwich on November 26th last year, with their new Chairman Barry Price in control. We went in a Porsche 928, expecting to mingle with many exotic motor-cars. But the ice that morning had kept all the Bugattis at home, for fear of salt-pollution, and the car-park had only a light dusting of Ferraris and...

Hill Climb

James Thomson made up for his disappointment at Wiscombe Park by making fastest time of the day at the second round of the RAC Hill Climb Championship at Loton Pak on Easter Monday. The day was cold, rather windy but dry, and it was the same trio as at Wiscombe setting the fastest times in the top ten run off, albeit in a reversed order. Chris Cramer again failed to qualify, by just one hundredth...

Cars I have owned

C. W. P. Hampton, well-known member of the Bugatti Owners' Club and Vintage S.C.C., and now a lieutenant in the Guards, continues the story of his 22 cars in 12 years' ownership, and expresses a decided preference for Continental productions. The Editor and proprietor of this paper do not necessarily endorse his views.—Ed. In 1937 I decided to have a crack at winning the Bugatti Owners Club's...

SOME very fast speeds were put up at the Race Hill, Lewes, on Saturday, September 8th, the occasion being the meeting organised by the Bugatti Owners Club. For the first time in many moons R. G. J. Nash was deprived of the honour of making fastest time of the day, and his " Spook " Anzani-Nash had to bow the knee to J. Lemon Burton, C. E. C. Martin, and A. H. L. Eccles, all on Bugattis. After the...

THE .1. R. D. C. SPEED TRIAL AN INTER CLUB MEETING NEAR HENLEY.

The venue was...

MATTERS OF MOMENT • THAT WAS THE YEAR THAT WAS "The maxim of the British people is 'Business as tauar" — Winston Churchill. This is the last issue of MOTOR SPORT that will be published this year, the first twelve months of the 1980s, so it behoves us to glance hack at a few of the significant motoring happenings therein.

V to C miscellany

The Brooklands Society souvenir book we recommended last month, which commemorates the eightieth anniversary of the Track, is available for £1.50 from the Society administrator at 48 Fortescue Road, Weybridge, Surrey KT13 9SB. Although the caption for our General Strike picture (Motor Sport, July 1987) identified the car in the foreground as a 12/50 Alvis, we have since had doubts. In the old...

Two mysteries

A reader has drawn our attention to a curious remark made some time ago by Nigel Dempster in his gossip-column in the Daily Mail. Writing about the possibility of Fiona Campbell-Walker marrying the antiques dealer Dimitri, he described the prospective husband's late father as having "won the 1938 Monaco Grand Prix". But there was no such race that year ... And in Daisy Reminisces (Bachman &...
