Alan Cottam defies the rain at VSCC Prescott

Heavy rain on August 14th did its best to wash away the Prescott hill-climb course on the occasion of the annual VSCC meeting there. But this did not affect spectator attendance, nor the efficient time-schedule. Cottam, too, whose FTDs are not taken almost for granted, showed he could do this in the wet as expertly as in the dry, his Connaught clocking 50.09 sec. That this was 7.42 sec. slower...

V-E-V Miscellany.

The AGM of the Vintage Motor Cycle Club takes place at Bristol on April 29th. The Morgan Three-Wheeler Club, which has its 1984 opening run on April 8th, can now claim a total of over 600 members, as at December 31st.

Club News

We Hear Bernard Coulter informs us that the French motor paper L'Actualite Automobile, edited by Camille Lacome, has been revived. Coulter has a Type 40 Bugatti sans engine, into which he has fitted an Alvis "Speed Twenty" gearbox, the power unit still constituting a problem. Incidentally, Coulter broadcast reminiscences of "L'Ecusie du Lapin Blanc" at Le Mans, over the B.B.C. Free French Service...

Veteran Edwardian Vintage

A Section Devoted To Old-Car Matters Looking back at VSCC Silverstone The second VSCC Silverstone Meeting was plagued by heavy rain showers, which was unfortunate, because there was a record entry and because the wet track was directly responsible for the Bentley-Napier leaving the course and being badly damaged, with David Llewellyn being slightly injured. The traditional races at this meeting...

Redefining vintage sportscars

I had a dream. Rather a dubious one. I am told that it is good to discuss what you dreamt about, so here goes. I saw first the letters VSCC, which enlarged into Vintage Sports-Car Club. Not Vintage Car Club or Old Cars Club, but Sports-Car Club.

Louis Coatalen, who had come to the Sunbeam Motor Company in Wolverhampton from Hillman in 1909, had shown himself to be extremely keen on motor racing. He had...

Motoring As It Was

A Look Back to the Road of the 1920s (Continued from the March issue) Continuing the motoring saga of Owen John, automobilist (his own term) and motoring writer, we are reminded, for he told us himself, that just after the First World War had ended he had foreseen a great motor road going from the north of England to dip under the Channel by the tunnel, which was to set the seal on the World's...
