VSCC Silverstone Meeting (July 18th)

The Vintage SCC held another successful race meeting at Silverstone last month, in sunshine, without accidents, but with enough exciting incidents and close racing to hold the interest of those present, but with Neil Corner not on winning form, while the ERAs were mainly non-runners. The traditional one-hour high-speed trial opened the day's sport, 17 drivers qualifying for awards, including...

Multiple choice

Continuing a trilogy that chronicles key moments in the sport’s technical evolution, we look back at a race featuring the very best from France, Britain, Italy and America Writer Paul Fearnley Post-war emotion was still raw in France and Mercedes was neither welcome nor invited. It wouldn’t have won in any case. Hyperinflation in Germany, when added to that denial of top-rank European competition...

Continercata,_. notes and By OUR CONTINENTAL CORRESPONDENT Steinweg Killed It is a characteristic human failing, I suppose, for the layman only to draw attention to the danger of motor-racing when a fatuous driver is killed. That the 1935 season has been happily lacking in fatal accidents naturally receives no comment. Again, it is curious that the only racing drivers to be killed in Europe this...

k. umblings 1301111ERGES SUPPOSE that the day will come, in some distant millenium, when all the cars for a race will be ready in plenty of time, but it seems unlikely. It is certainly not current practice, and I don't suppose it ever will be, as it is not always so good when the cars are ready in time.

I feel that it is only fair to mention that the Bugatti model is much more a product of precision engineering than a mass-produced item. A simple example of this is the difference in the bodywork of the two cars; the coachwork of...

VSCC Cadwell

(August 29th) The Vintage SCC's decision to hold its final 1976 race meeting at the 2 1/4-mile Cadwell Park road circuit, the oldest established race course in this country, turned out very well. This is a splendid undulating circuit of decent length, reminiscent of a pre-war Continental roadcourse. It is run efficiently, is in a most presentable country setting, is fun to drive round, and the...
