Oita ..,„„,„??=111911/ WE HEAR It's rather incredible, but yet anothei s.v. Aston-Martin has to be reported on as coming to light ; a rather poor specimen now being restored to really good order by G. E. Kitchen, of Sheffield, who estimates that the work will occupy the best part of a year. We gather that the polished aluminium and copper work is already coming up well. News comes in that Hugh...

On planning for the peace – II

Even in our particular world there are divers matters that will require reshaping when the peace comes and about which thinking men and women should plan now. Apart from major motoring issues there is the question of how the thousands of enthusiasts serving in H.M. Forces now are going to gain much-needed relaxation by way of sporting motoring when the Axis Powers have been brought to heel. There...

A Hybrid for South Africa Those who specialise in the construction of special cars for racing sometimes have curious jobs to do. Arthur Baron is just now building a car for a client who wants to take it out to South Africa and do some racing in that country, where racing is rapidly becoming of great importance, and that requires a fast car that will not need everything duplicated for spares and a...

ON SOME FACTORS AFFECTING THE FUTURE MOTOR-RACING is not exactly in a bad way, but the future is not without its precarious tinge.

Unhappy contrast

WHEN MOTOR SPORT suggested, at the beginning of the war, that a trial or other contest might be organised and entries taken from amongst Service and Home Defence personnel, we hardly expected such a state of affairs to come about. Yet such is now the case. We read that "Centre officials are quite pleased with the second Services trial. . . " "The Army were missed, but the Home Guard and A.R.P....

Club News

The commencement of large scale air raids on London on September 7th put paid to a number of club meetings. The 750 Club and the E.R.A. Club have cancelled their meetings in town, and a proposed future gathering of the M.G. Car Club has had to be abandoned. The 750 Club has been particularly hard hit, for a bomb unluckily fired the offices of P. H. Hunter, the secretary, and although very...

Richard Bolster WE were sorry indeed to hear that Richard Bolster, brother of John Bolster, had been killed in action with the R. A..F. Richard was one of I he young men who have been doing so much to win the war for us ; he represented all that is best in the well-to-do young British sportsman. We recollect hearing John telling the story of how he got accepted as a pilot officer with the R.A.F....
