VSCC Light Car Rally

The Light Car Section of the VSCC held its annual Rally in the Cotswolds on June 7th and 8th, a weekend of glorious sunshine well-suited to these small cars. Saturday included a 'bus trip to the Woolstaplers Hall museums in Chipping Campden, showing Guy Griffiths' collection of interesting and desirable historic cars. Later a regatta was held; Neill Bruce and Pat Wilson emerged the winners of a...

Malvern cyclecars

These strange machines came in response to an appeal by VSCC member Bob Jones, who had hastily put together a typical example, with singlecylinder JAP engine, Sturmey-Archer gearbox, belt final drive, wire-and-bobbin steering and, would you believe, wooden front axle, track-rod and back springs. You wouldn't expect me to describe every one of the 600 plus cars in the main events, would you? Or...

V to C Miscellany

V to C Miscellany Arising out of the recent reference in MOTOR SPORT to the 1927 Ensbury Park air races, Barry Stapleton writes to say that his 1928 FWD Alvis was sold by Motor Macs who sponsored aeroplanes at that meeting. It is the first road-equipped four-cylinder FWD Alvis, WK 5485, which Major Harvey drove in practice for the 1928 Essex MC's Six Hour race at Brooklands. The engine gave...

My light vintage frolics

The light car & Edwardian section of the VSCC celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, which is a good excuse to recall its first event. The thing was my idea, and the reason for my affinity with the smaller pre-1931 cars was a miserly one. Not only were they cheaper than a 12/50 Alvis or Lea-Francis, but I had the quite erroneous theory that light cars, however aged, would be less worn out...

Veteran Edwardian Vintage

A section devoted to old-car matters The VSCC Light Car Weekend This year's Welsh Weekend run by the Light Car Section of the Vintage SCC on March 28th/29th was its customary success. After weeks of teeming rain and much flooding, the weather relented, as if to applaud the fact that, despite the increase in petrol prices and car tax, a full entry of 50 was received for this happy occasion,...

VSCC vintage light-car trial

The annual Welsh weekend of the VSCC Light Car Section saw 59 intrepid crews set out on the Saturday navigational-cum-scenic run and the nine-section trial on the Sunday. On such an occasion cyclecars mingle with light cars. GNs were well represented and Edward Riddle's 10E tourer would have commanded respect in 1921 had it then had the electrical starter he has recently fitted. These delightful...
