Further information can be obtained from Noel Stokoe, 16 Eskdaleside, Sleights, Whitby, North...

Veteran to classic -- Jowett Jupiter

The Little Beauty " I must take you to task over a statement which you made in the December 1990 issue of Motor Sport in the Triumphant Trio article when you stated 'after all, where else are you going to get an everyday sports car which takes you to a race meeting, is partially stripped, etc, etc.' Well the Jowett Jupiter is one such car. . . . My particular Jupiter, which I have owned since...

Jupiter details

Sir, I read with keen interest your recent article covering the Jowett Jupiter (Motor Sport, February 1989) but I feel some points of detail need to be mentioned. Firstly that the chassis only was designed at ERA (production cars). Whilst it is true that the Jowett Jupiter has an enthusiastic following within the Jowett Car Club (which caters for all Jowett models), it is also true that a 100%...

The enthusiastic Jowett CC has published Jowettsport, a bi-annual account of sporting activities with Jowetts of all kinds. The current issue includes a list of 1990/91 competition successes and among the 21 photographs are some of vintage Jowetts, one a reminder that, at the 1962 VSCC Light Car race at Silverstone, Peter Lilley's was on the line with an A7 coupe. Compiled by Mike Smailes and...

Jowett Jupiter

By jove! What made the success of the Jowett Jupiter in the 1950s especially notable was that this classic British sports-car was in production for only three years, during which time only 850 were built. And although it was based on the Jowett Javelin family saloon, it was not designed by Jowett's engineers. Yet it continues to have an enthusiastic following among members of the Jowett Car Club...

Matters of moment

Multum in Parvo Whether or not you believe that in the lifetime of the present generation the World's supplies of crude oil and other fuels will dry up completely, so that horse-breeding will replace the massproduction of automobiles, or whether you simply regard the ever-rising cost of petrol as sufficient reason to make a little go as far as possible, you must presumably be thinking in terms of...

Norris Miles of Hubbard Racing is keen to start a series based on the old Group 2, pre '74 saloons, reviving a series from 16 years ago that used to see Camaros, BMWs, Capris, Mustangs, Escorts and Alfas mercilessly vie with one another. If the response is good enough, an RAC affiliated organisation will be approached and dates fixed up for some events which have the prospect of being sponsored....

"Lost causes at Beaulieu"

(September 20th) After writing one of the most fascinating detailed motoring histories ever published, Lord Montagu of Beaulieu inaugurated the first Lost Causes Rally at Beaulieu some ten years ago. It catered for the cars referred to in his "Lost Causes of Motoring" book, with classes called after the chapter titles, which gave rise to such mysterious (to the uninitiated) categories as "Jam...
