Book reviews

Fifty Famous Motor Racesby Alan Henry. 224 pp. 11" x 7½". (Thorsons Publishing Group Ltd, Denington Estate, Wellingborough, Northamptonshire, NN8 2RQ. £16.95.) A nice idea, this, to remember fifty famous occasions - not necessarily superb contests but great events. Alan Henry has chosen races ranging from the 1935 German Grand Prix, when Nuvolari at his peak took victory for Alfa Romeo from under...

V-E-V Miscellany

For the sake of history, in my review of Rene Dreyfus' excellent book "My Two Lives", in the April issue, I wrongly referred to him racing for Harry Schell when what I intended was Laurie Schell, and Le Bergue should, of course, have been Le Begue; both were correct in the book. Incidentally, D.S.J. reminds me that Harry was Laurie Schell's elder son and his younger son, Philippe, still lives in...

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. Hamish Moffatt had been out fixing the "sections", with enough hills to delete any whose condition on the day made them inadvisable. This left a dozen good but comparatively easy ones, reported as enjoyable. "Royal...

Around the tracks

VSCC: Prescott Dean's Bugatti scorches to the top Charles Dean maintained his strong run of form to take FTD with his Bugatti Type 51 in the VSCC's traditional August hillclimb at Prescott The hugely popular event was blessed with glorious weather for all but the latter runs and, in spite of the increasingly damp and slippery conditions, Dean stopped the clock at 43sec on his second run to clip...

An August Assembly

Although it was not the last VSCC race this year, the August meeting at Cadwell Park retained its delightful atmosphere, rare sunshine filtering through the trees of the scenic and hilly circuit where BBC cameras were stationed — but only for the motorcycle event of the Bank Holiday Monday. Unfortunately the major event, the Williams Trophy, was curtailed after an alarming accident stopped what...

Air A Mild Mystery

Having got over a phobia I had as a boy, that if I took too great an interest in aeroplanes this might detract from my enthusiasm for cars (earlier I had dreaded becoming a teenager, in the belief that then all I would require from life would be playing football, which proved far from the case), I pursued both interests without anxiety and contributed to motoring and aviation Journals. Thus,...

Motoring as it was

A look back to the roads of the 1920s (Continued from last month)  We left "Owen John", whose past motoring fortunes we are pondering, at the 1921 Motor Show. After this he visited the Motorcycle Show, but seems to have been impressed only by the Ner-a-Car and the Peters, apart from being able to tell the vendors that the Hellesen dry-battery lamp he bought the previous year was still working. He...

VSCC Driving Tests

Having held driving-tests at Enstone in December, the Vintage Sports Car Club decided it would like some more in January. It held them at Barton Stacey Camp near Andover. Notwithstanding the weather, 74 entries came in, number one rightly being given to Tanner's impressive 1902 9 1/4-litre racing Mors, although it was a long way from Paris or Vienna. Alas, it retired. Setting off to watch, we...
