VSCC January DTs

It might be thought that to have had the DTs in January was a bad start to the new year. Fortunately, those the Vintage SCC had on the 29th of that month were of a different kind! Despairing of Brooklands, they held them at the old Goodwood race circuit in Sussex. It was good to go there again, to this scene of so many excellent BARC race meetings. The tunnel under the track was flooded from...

The VSCC Welsh week-end

(October 17/18th) This year's Presteigne Rally and Trial, postponed a fortnight at the mercy of the RAC, escaped continuous rain but ran into frosty fog, although mainly run in autumnal sunshine. The road-section and Concours d'Elegance on the Saturday attracted 26 entries, of whom only Miss Bendall's Fiat and Col. Gresham's Vauxhall failed to turn up. The fog caused a few to lose marks for late...

Matters of Moment

The Back-Britain Crusade With this small Island plagued by Devaluation, strikes, political unrest, mounting crime, foot and mouth, the influenza epidemic, freak gales, unstable trains, uncertain government, unrealistic speed-limits, savage taxation and other calamities, the Back-Britain campaign is opportune, if not considerably overdue. We as a nation are suffering from political uncertainty....

On September 18 the VSCC rally-scene moved to Kent, when 57 drivers and their navigators set off hoping to win the Measham Trophy, in this scheduled time event. Doing a section too quickly was as much a "loser" as being late. The Overall Winner was P Cattell, navigated by T Cook, in a 1933 1630cc Riley. The best show by a Novice was that of B Thompson, helped by I Bennett and their 1924 Fiat, and...

The VSCC Pomeroy Trophy

This year's Pomeroy Memorial Trophy was held under dry but occasionally grey skies, around the Silverstone Club circuit, with the traditional organisation of the Vintage Sports Car Club. A spirited performance from Hugh Conway and his 1928 Bugatti 43 secured the "Pom" in appropriately elegant style. First class awards were taken by H.C. Bergel's 1926 Bugatti 35T, M. Hilton's magnificent Ferrari...

Veteran- Edwardian- Vintage-

A section devoted to old-car matters A wet VSCC Thruxton (September 12th) The final Vintage SCC Race Meeting of the year, at Thruxton, was wet for most of the time the wide variety of cars were racing. I used to wonder whether the Farnborough Air Display organisers had special meteorological information, because they seemed invariably to pick the best of the September weather, but this year two...

Seaside Speed

The Vintage Sports Car Club achieved another ambition on October 4, that of holding a seaside speed-trial. In the 1920s and earlier, a great many seaside resorts attracted visitors by having such events on their marine promenades or on the sands. Weston-super-Mare, now just off the M5, started in 1913 (with a one-mile sand speed-meeting, at which Hands' 25/50 Talbot made FTD) and it was here the...
