Veteran to Classic: "I tested racing car tyres"

I had an interesting meeting with Mr J. F. Andrews, who used to test racing-car tyres for the Dunlop Rubber Company Ltd. We met at that convenient centre, the Midland Motor Museum in Bridgnorth, the route thereto taking me over one of my favourite roads, that from Knighton via Brampton Bryan, Diddlebury, and Morville, which the Ford Sierra XR 4x4 took in its usual capable style. Before working...

Books for Christmas

"The Four-Wheeled Morgan, Volume One The Flat-Radiator Models" by Ken Hall. 136 pp. 7 in. x 91 in. (Motor Racing Publications, 28 Devonshire Road, London W4 2HD £5.45) One would be justified in saying that the writing of books about the Morgan has been somewhat overdone, fascinating as is the subject. Because when I remarked last month, when reviewing Peter Garnier's IPC review of the Morgan...

V-to-C miscellany

A reader has found two 1932 RAC Competition Licences. Both are made out to Geoffrey Norman Crowther, who declared his date of birth as 1908 and the place as Queensbury in Yorkshire. He wonders whether these licences are those of the GN Crowther who drove a Vernon-Crossley in the 1932 LCC Relay Race at Brooklands (Yes — WB) and, as he was born very close to Huddersfield, could he be the son of CK...

Letters from Readers

Sir, I enjoyed reading your report of the last Shelsley Walsh Meeting in your October issue, and I do not disagree with your suggestion that my argument with the bank in practice resulted in a certain degree of caution the following day. Incidentally, as I have competed at Shelsley since 1921, I thought I knew enough about the hill to keep out of trouble, and as a matter of interest it seems...
