EXPLODING A FALLACY AERO MOTORS VERSUS MOTOR-CYCLE ENGINES FOR USE IN CAR CHASSIS THE V-twin cycle-car is by no means dead for sprint work, while quite a number of readers are interested in this type of vehicle for road work. In the latter case interest centres round the Morgan three-wheeler converted to a four-wheeler. In this connection we have had a most interesting correspondence with Mr....

THE VETERAN C.C. RALLY AND HILL CLIMB AT TILBURSTOW The Veteran Car Club, under the able guidance of its hon. secretary, Capt. J. H. Wylie, goes about its business so unobtrusively that it is difficult indeed to believe that it has, in actual fact, 208 members who between them own about 140 genuine, pre-1905 cars. It seems to us that owners of veteran cars may be divided into three distinct...

We hear S. H. Statham reports that all except himself and one other member of the Scuderia Statham are overseas; the Scuderia's cars include J2, N and K-type M.G.s, a "Brooklands" Riley Nine, a 3-litre Invicta, a special Austin Seven and a Fiat "500." Statham himself is down in Wales and reports seeing only three interesting cars – two T-type M.G.s and a 1 1/2-litre M.G. – in the last six months...

The origin and history of the Vintage S.C.C.

As Mr. Pomeroy has not been able to rewrite the MSS. of his "Evolution of the Racing Car," which was lost in the post around Christmas, in time for this issue, we present instead this account of a club which, from being a rather specialist organisation, developed into one of our most successful clubs, offering members an excellent programme of trials, sprint events, race meetings and socials of...

We very deeply regret to report the following instances of motor-racing personnel deceased, killed in action or reported missing. Commando Rodney Seys was killed recently as a result of an accident – it is not clear whether as a result of enemy action or not. Seys, who was engaged to Anne Robertson-Rodger, was typical of the really keen, younger generation of enthusiast. He had owned Austin Seven...

A Section Devoted to Old-Car Matters LONG AGO.—In view of the prevailing dislike by drivers of the high windscreen specified for this year's sports-car races by the F.I.A., there is interest in this Motor Sport picture of a pre-war Le Mans race, with a 4½-litre Lagonda in the foreground—note that competitors were allowed to fold the main windscreen flat, being protected by an aero-screen. THE V.S...

An account of the 1913 Cyclecar Grand Prix

Kenneth Neve describes an unusual but classic race of the days of "chain-cum-belt." All except the very youngest of Motor Sport readers, even if he or she did not own or ride one, will remember those motor-cycles common until the late 1920's and to be seen in remoter districts even to-day, on which the power was transmitted from the engine to the gearbox by chain and from the gearbox to the back...

VINTAGENTS AT DONINGTON ABOUT thirty Vintage S.C.C. members competed in the Club's Donington race meeting on August 12th. Unfortunately the day was saddened by a fateful accident to Sir John Bowen. He was handling a six-cylinder 1 flitre Maserati in the fourth race and was in third place from the 12 secs. mark, when, on the 5th lap he got into a swerve along the Straight and crashed. That such an...
