A Section Devoted to Aeronautical Affairs Winning the 1980 "Dawn-to-Dusk" The bend of the Thames at Greenwich slid under the yellow fabric-covered wing as we turned onto track for the final leg. Past Crystal Palace, Croydon and KenIey, over the M25, and there was Redhill ahead, standing out like a bowling green in the bright evening sunlight. We joined overhead, the T indicated 26 and, with the...

The Tiger Club Display at Fairoaks (April 28th)

The Tiger Club Old Time Flying Display at the pleasant grass aerodrome at Fairoaks was good value, with 19 items on the programme. Charles Boddington effectively acrobatic-ed a Tiger Moth, James Baring directed the performing VW-engined 600-lb. Turbulents, which flew in formation of three and four, two emitting smoke, and Turbulents and Tigers found balloon-bursting an easy task, only one getting...

Silverstone Shorts

Apart from the opening fly-past by the Griffon-engined Spitfire, there was anotner tribute to Pat Lindsay: his own Spitfire was parked at the end of the Paddock, flanked by his Rolls-Royce tourer and Monza Alfa Romeo and at the end of the Meeting Tony Bianchi did some more low-level fly-pasts with it. It was very much a Maserati day, and D.S.J is dealing with these cars, but it can be said that...

Veteran to classic

Brooklands reunion Following the VSCC meeting at Silverstone, we drove to Weybridge for the Brooklands Society Annual Reunion. Staying at the famous Hand & Spear, we found Mr and Mrs Owen Wyn Owen, who had brought "Babs" on its trailer behind a Range Rover. The 27-litre Liberty-engined Parry Thomas LSR car ran on the banking once or twice, but it was not in a very good mood, a broken gearbox...

Motoring Books for Summer Reading

"The Vintage Motor Car Pocketbook." Compiled by Cecil Clutton, Paul Bird and Anthony Harding. 256 pp. 5⅝ in. by 41/8 in. (B. T. Batsford Ltd., 4, Fitzhardinge Street, London, W.1. 8s. 6d.) There is no end, it seems, to the books that pour from the presses about vintage cars, but this little reference work is the greatest fun. Indeed, it is more likely to be used for pleasant browsing than for...

Vintage Postbag

Sir, In your summary of "The Vintage Motor Car Pocketbook" in the June issue of the Motor Sport,  I note that you say that the Chrysler 62 is more in the vintage tradition than the model 70. Does this not just go to show how far advanced the American motor car was when a Chrysler 70, which was manufactured in 1929, does not even look like a vintage car? This model, incidentally, had a four-speed...

For a Change - An Air Display

Just as a change from motor-racing, and because crowded roads may induce people to combine motoring with flying, we went to the grass aerodrome at Elstree on May 25th, for Elstree Flying Club's Air Display. It equalled those we used to enjoy before the war in everything save variety of aeroplanes. It really was a creditable show, enhanced by a straightforward, well-informed commentary. Although a...

Out of the past

From time to time Motor Sport's readers send me much interesting material, such as a photostat of a page from the one-time Douglas Company's house-magazine The Con-Road, of which I had not heard previously. This came to me from Mr. Geoff Lee of Ruislip and is dated 1927. It is about a racing car assembled by C. G. Pullin from parts he imported from America, for use at Brooklands in 1911. Now I...

Books for the New Year

"The Rolls-Royce Motor Car"by Anthony Bird and Ian Hallows. 320 pp. 10 in. x 7 in. (B. T. Batsford Ltd., 4, Fitzhardinge Street, London, W.1. 105s.) Books about the Rolls-Royce are something of an obsession with profit-intent publishers, because they sell well, especially for dollars. Batsford enlisted the aid of that painstaking historian Anthony Bird, and Ian Hallows of the 20 Ghost Club Record...
