The Editor Interviews

Bill Bengry, Rally Driver That is how the entry in my local telephone directory reads, reminder of one of our more versatile rally drivers, who by reason of careful personal preparation of the cars he drove, allied to determination and skill, has an enormous number of awards to his credit, and now prepares his son's competition Opel 400 with undiminished enthusiasm. It was perhaps not unexpected...

Around and About

Equipe POW MOST MOTOR RACING has become so turgidly serious these days that it was good to meet a gang of amateur enthusiasts the other day who profess unashamedly to being in it for the fun and the booze as much as for the racing. After all, it did use to be fun didn't it? Rejoicing under the name of Equipe POW, which initials denote the name of the trendy Princess of Wales pub in Dove House...

With the VSCC at Enstone

On December 1st the Vintage SCC held its Enstone driving tests meeting, with the proximity of that pleasant pub, the 'Crown', at Church Enstone a bonus. The entries for this aerodrome frolic numbered 100, as diverse as Malcolm Elder's sedate Humber tourer and Roger Collings' far from sedate 8-litre Bentley Special. It was an indication that Austin A7s are popular for driving tests as for vintage...

VSCC Oulton Park

The annual Vintage SCC race meeting at OuIton Park on June 14th was delayed by three factors, the rain, an accident, and loss of telephonic communication with the marshals' posts. But by reducing the length of the longer races the meeting was eventually successfully completed. An innovation at this Richard Seaman Memorial Trophies Meeting was the inclusion of two Lloyds & Scottish Historic...

VSCC At Donington

The VSCC ran a cold but interesting meeting at Donington on May 7th, sponsored by Pirelli—so it was appropriate that MOTOR SPORT's Editor arrived on Pirelli tyres, although I have to admit to a Dunlop spare. Appropriately again, Edwards won the five-lap Handicap for the Brooklands Society Trophy in his much-raced, ex-Brooklands Ulster Aston Martin, from Borrows' Alvis Speed-25 and Stewart's 3/4½...

A Section Devoted to Old-Car Matters VSCC Driving Tests (Dec. 5th) Miraculously the weather was dry, but cold, for the traditional December frolics of the VSCC and the tests were run at comparatively high speed, involving driving skill and being a test of a car's better qualities. But the entry was comparatively small, only eight in the Touring class and 49 all told. The tests are difficult to...

VSCC Prescott

The annual VSCC Prescott hill-climb was held on August 12th in hot weather and attracted a record crowd of spectators. The 12/50 Alvis Register had a birthday party in the public enclosure which was attended by 79 appropriate Alvis cars, not counting those which were competing. Fastest time of the afternoon was made by Roberts in the ex-Wilks Lotus 16, who came within 0.3 sec. of Cottam's...
