Veteran — Edwardian — Vintage

A Section Devoted to Old-Car Matters THE V.S.C.C. OULTON PARK RACE MEETING (June 25th) PERHAPS the best of the Vintage S.C.C. race meetings, this fixture fell on the last Saturday in flaming June, so naturally it poured with rain most of the day. This did not spoil the sport, and some very good racing took place. Practice produced some unfortunate eliminations. Seddon's Lagonda Rapier collided...

Berthon and Mays

Sir, In his letter (May issue MOTOR SPORT) my old friend Anthony Brooke assumes rather more than I have written. Indeed Peter Berthon often rode with Raymond Mays at Southport, and at Shelsley Walsh, at Brooklands and at other venues, not only in the Vauxhall Villiers (now in Anthony Brooke's good hands), but in other cars raced by Mays. In my letter I only wrote thus — "I well remember Raymond...

Club news

750 Club The 750 Club meeting at the "Osterley" on May 3rd went over big, as usual, many useful contacts being made, much motoring conversation indulged in, and, best of all, George Monkhouse showed his inimitable films of Grand Prix racing of the 1935-38 period. There is no gainsaying the value of these meetings as a break from the monotony or excitement of war-effort existence, and everyone who...

Letters from Readers

Sir, Your reader, Patrick Green, asked for information regarding the ex-Mays' Vaux hall Supercharge. After being raced successfully by S. G. Cummings and finally hitting a tree at Wetherby, it was purchased by a friend of mine. The chassis being badly out of line, I suggested buying the Kaye Don " 4.9 " isugatti chassis and installing the Vauxhall engine, complete with clutch and gearbox, but...

Berthon and Mays

Sir, It isn't often I would correct Rivers Fletcher on motoring topics but I must show him the black Bag and his number when he states Raymond Mays refused to carry Peter Berthon as passenger in the Southport sand races. In "Split Seconds" Mays describes the 1928 100-mile race at Southport and refers to Berthon's discomfort at 120 m.p.h. after he last his goggles and had no aeroscreen either....

Sorting out the TT Vauxhalls

When I wrote up Alistair Templeton's recreating of No. 1 TT Vauxhall last year I remarked that I would have liked to have sorted out which one of the three team cars was which, in the subsequent career of these 1922 racing Vauxhalls, but considered the task too fraught with problems, at all events to obtain a reasonably-accurate result. However, the matter niggled me, until I thought to ask Mr....

British is Best Sir, The start of the new season of Grand Prix racing prompts me to recount my experiences as a paying customer at the Spanish and Portuguese GP’s last year. Basic entrance price for Estoril was about £17, which with only one supporting race (Renault Challenge) was not exactly good value. The circuit was much smaller than I imagined from television images, but set in a natural...

Letters from readers

Sir, Having recently read the article which appeared in Motor Sport some months ago by a New Zealand enthusiast, I am prompted to make my small contribution to this worthy journal, which was, until a few months ago, entirely unknown to me. More's the pity. If I make rather heavy weather of it, I ask you to make allowances and try to remember that I find the "spanner mightier than the pen."...

Letter from Germany

From D.S.J. to the Deputy Editor Dear M.L., I never thought I would actually enjoy a visit to the Hockenheimring, but after going to the New Nürburgring last year for the German Grand Prix, the flat Motodrom near Mannheim seemed quite friendly and pleasant. If nothing else, the long curving legs out into the country from the artificial stadium allow some high speed, and high speed is what Grand...
