VSCC Herefordshire Trial

The VSCC started its 1996 trials season with the Herefordshire Trial on February 17. A good start, the weather not too cold and the gales subsiding beforehand, for the 104 entries.

VSCC Light Car Welsh Week-End

True to tradition, the VSCC lightcarists, joined by a number of Edwardian brethren and the Collings' veteran Mercedes and Darracq, journeyed to Mid-Wales on April 7th / 8th for their DTs, trial and annual dinner. Out of a full entry of 50 drivers and half-a-dozen reserves, eight were using b.e. tyres, 24 scorned the new-fangled FWB, and 19 placed their faith in Austin 7s, of which one saved...
