Veteran to classic -- VSCC Silverstone

Vintage Sports-Car Club racing opened at a cold "new Silverstone" on April 20, using the 1.7-mile National circuit, the 10-race programme oversubscribed, with 286 entrants. After the customary 30 minute High Speed Trial, in which only Walker's 1935 Alvis retired and Bowles' TT Ford V8, Mrs Monro's big Alvis and Beattie's Frazer Nash failed to attain their qualifying requirements, the Fox &...

Easy Does It

Fine if cold weather, a large attendance and an entry of 232 cars on April 23 made the first Vintage Sports Car Club race meeting of 1988 a memorable one. Two intended attractions at Silverstone were the Bugatti Royale and “Babs”, the 27-litre aero-engined Parry Thomas car due to race for the first time since 1926 when it lapped Brooklands at 125.77 mph. However, “Babs” suffered a con-rod...

The classic restorers Hall & Hall

Hall & Hall On a windswept Lincolnshire Airflied, once the home of BRM, the Shriek of a supercharged V16 can still sometimes be heard. But there's no supernatural agency at work: 20 years after the team folded, Gordon Cruickshank visits a firm which is perpetuating the legend The instructions say, 'Turn left at Owen's Barn'. There are no signs, just a big black construction looking more...

The Month in Motor Sport Sep 14: John Gray sets a new course record at Brighton Speed Trials in his Pilbeam MP58.

As we saw in Part Two 4502 remained almost unchanged through to 1949, apart from the engine capacity being reduced to 3 litres for the Indianapolis rules. It then almost lost its identity when the Granatelli brothers changed it into a Grancor, installing a 4-cylinder Offenhauser engine and making a completely new body bearing no resemblance to the original Maserati one. The Maserati engine went...

VSCC Silverstone

The Gods smile The Vintage Sports-Car Club again bribed the weather gods, so its first race rneeting of 1989 on April 15 was held in dry conditions, before a record crowd. The new chicane was, however, generally disliked, and from a personal viewpoint the newly-fenced enclosures gave the feeling of being in a zoo, and the new Jimmy Brown Press complex was locked up!

Two days of VSCC at Oulton Park

Again this year the one-time one-day VSCC Meeting at the pleasant OuIton Park circuit was spreading over two days, a feast of motor racing, bicycle racing, beauty parade and auto-jumbling, attractive to participants but rather tough on spectators; it involved this scribe in 415 miles' motoring, for instance... However, it enabled 14 races to be held, in cold, damp conditions on the Saturday, in...

Veteran to classic: VSCC Donington

Mayman rules!

VSCC July Silverstone Races

VSCC July Silverstone Races THE VINTAGE SCC has a way with the weather and for its second 1985 Silverstone races, the Mike Hawthorn Memorial Trophy Meeting, it chose a marvellous summer day. Nine races were divided between an entry of 187 and good interesting racing resulted. The afternoon opened, after a Parade of modern Maseratis, with the six-lap Scratch race incorporating the Bill Phillips...
