Veteran Edwardian Vintage

Veteran Edwardian Vintage A SECTION DEVOTED TO OLD-CAR MATTERS VSCC Silverstone — Moffatt (Bugatti) Wins ltala Trophy THE VINTAGE Sports Car Club opened its 1980 racing season at Silverstone (Club circuit) on April 26th, with 153 entries (one fewer than last year), well-filled grandstands, and the rain holding off, a good omen for this Club's future race meetings — at Oulton Park on June 14th (...

The 250F Maserati -- Part Three

(Continued from the July issue) While the Maserati factory team was enjoying a successful season in 1957 with the three "Lightweight" cars, 2527, 2528 and 2529, it was also experimenting with a car for the future. Originally this was going to be an entirely new car, with a 2-1/2--litre flat-12 cylinder engine, following the 250F layout by being front-mounted and still using a gearbox in unit with...

VSCC Silverstone Stop Press Report

VSCC Silverstone Stop Press Report (Saturday, April 19th.) FINE WEATHER, 167 entries, and big spectator support ensured the success of the first Vintage SCC race meeting of 1975. Unfortunately, the new pits-complex has destroyed the onlookers' gallery and the presence of Silverstone's rally-style Ford firetender lapping with the vintage racers, and passing the Edwardians, was an incongruous sight...

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...

Veteran – Edwardian – Vintage

A section devoted to old-car matters The April V.S.C.C. Silverstone meeting The race meetings so ably organised by the Vintage S.C.C. attract notably large numbers of spectators because, apart from their own members and friends and others who prefer old to modern motoring sport, the variety of the competing cars appeals greatly even to those who, in general, side with Henry Ford in thinking that...

VSCC Measham Trophy Rally

(JAN. 4th/5th) This normally-annual event wasn't run last year because of the petrol-panic but was resumed last month in spite of the return of the 50 m.p.h. speed limit, which seems to indicate that the VSCC doesn't believe that this has been imposed for fuel conservation reasons, any more than we do. Whereas, before the war, it would have been possible to enliven the 200-mile night drive with...

The Brooklands Reunion

A very warm day helped to ensure the complete success of another Brooklands Society reunion at the old Track on June 26th. That the Brooklands magic has far from evaporated was evident in the big attendance, spectators' cars parked three abreast for the length of the long runway, untimed runs up the old Test Hill and short gallops on the cleared part of the Byfleet banking being sufficient to...

Marcus Pye's Diary

  Paying homage to the Maserati 250F, visiting the Brighton Speed Trials and railing against driving standards at Spa Donington Park: Difficult to believe, when one considers the extraordinary longevity of the model, that only two drivers won World Championship grands prix in Maserati 250Fs. That the opposition was immense, and well-funded, implies special talent was called for. Thus it was: Juan...

matters of moment

MATTERS OF MOMENT 1111 SHOWTIME SOLILOQUY Although less so than in Olympian and Earls Court times, the British Motor Show, which concluded recently in Birmingham, marks the near-close of another momentous motoring year. It has been a year that will long be remembered in general terms as well as in a motoring context. Nineteen-eighty-two saw the successful conclusion of a bloody war to regain...

Maserati 250F

In the November Motor Sport there was an advertisement which read as follows:— "250F Maserati. Built up from original parts using engine number 2522 and a new chassis frame. Car is in perfect condition and duty free in UK £57,000." This naturally aroused interest as Maserati 2522 was built by the factory in Modena in March 1956 and was one of the works team cars. Stirling Moss won the Richmond...
