"Give them a big hand"

The Bean C.C., no matter how small its own membership, has a happy knack of enticing an excellent entry to its meetings. Its Second Summer Rally at Bracknell Sports Stadium on July 21st had something like 90 entries of veteran to p.v.t. cars if historic commercials and vintage motorcycles are included. The event had some unusual items—the excellent grass arena was not open to the public until...

Book Reviews

"The Mustangs" by Richard Langworth 144 pp, 7½ x 9¼ in. (Motor Racing Publications Ltd, 28 Devonshire Road, London, W4 2HD. £8.95). Having given us a book all about the Chevrolet Corvettes, the American author has followed it with a similarly low-price but erudite and comprehensive study of that decidedly energetic sports-car, the versatile Ford Mustang. The book is aimed at American readers but...

MULTUM IN PARVO SOME NOTES ON ONE OF THE 1931 AUSTIN SEVEN TEAM T.T. CARS THE majority of our readers will probably best remember the Austin under review when it was George Chaplin's proud possession and did extremely well in the L.C.C. Relay Races and High Speed Trials. Some time ago S. T. Lush, of Westminster, acquired the little orange Austin and we requested an opportunity to conduct a long...

172 m.p.h. AT PENDINE.

172 m.p.h. AT PENDINE. Just as we are going to press we hear that J. G. P. Thomas, driving " Babs," the 27 litre Liberty-engined monster, has substantially improved on the figures for the flying mile and flying kilometre world's records, previously held by the two Sunbeams. Mr. Thomas's speeds were 170 m.p.h. for the kilometre and 169 m.p.h. for the mile. This performance is all the more...

Grand Prix THE visitation of the German team to this country last year has had a very far-reaching effect on enthusiasm in this country. Even those who were already well versed in motoring speed find that their interest in Brooklands racing and sprint events is now supplemented by a keen appreciation of the activities of Continental ace-drivers, and such folk find no difficulty now in associating...

Vintage Silverstone

The Club Silverstone season was opened on May 1st by the V.S.C.C., when a record attendance was achieved. In the One-Hour High-Speed Trial a good field, divided into classes, circulated with varying degrees of speed and reliability. Most of the cars qualified. The vintage Aston Martins of Edwards and Mennell were driven well, the former leaning out on corners. A. E. Griffin's 1929 12/50 Alvis "...

Matters of moment

Best buy? The present fuel shortage, industrial crisis and world unrest has had a significant effect on those who regard motoring as a way of life as well as convenience of private transportation and an essential business adjunct. There is all this crawling about at a pathetic 50 m.p.h. maximum, the uncertainty, at all events until recently, of being able to obtain sufficient petrol with which to...
