20th B.R.D.C. International Trophy, Silverstone

For the 20th B.R.D.C. International Daily Express Trophy race at Silverstone, the Club amassed a small but fairly representative field of Formula One cars.

Vintage Postbag

Lanchester versus Rolls-Royce Sir Your articles on "They Believed in Ghosts" and the R. R. Chauffeur's School were most interesting. The stupendous list of R.R maintenance items in the latter reminded me of a story told to me long ago by a member of the family of the last managing director of the old Lanchester company.

From Lord Howe Sir, Since I believe that I was one of the first to attack the use of the radar speed meter by the Buckinghamshire police and opposed its purchase in the early stages, I was interested to read Mr. N. J. Pugh's letter in the January issue of Motor Sport. I have received numerous letters supporting my views and a few, very few, in opposition, so it is not unreasonable to suppose that...

South Wales A.C. It was very disappointing that the South Wales A.C. should have had such a bad day for the first of their speed events on their new hill on April 3rd.

The Mumford Marina Convertible

An open-air family car So far as we know this Government has yet to tax fresh air and those with sufficient energy and time can continue to exercise their limbs in beautiful parts of Britain far removed from the Whitehall bureaucrats. But what of the rest of us, those with little energy and/or time who also enjoy fresh air, but whose exercise is restricted to pushing pedals, and turning wheels?...
