The 55th MCC Exeter Classic Trial

The Motor Cycling Club's Exeter Trial had an entry of 295 motorcycles and cars this year, and retained the triple starting-points and night run, torrential rain giving place to a sunny day in Devon, on January 7th / 8th. The observed-sections were centred around Exeter and I used the Alfa Romeo Six, comfortable, with a good map-light and fuel-range, for reporting on some of them. After three...

Veteran Edwardian Vintage

A section devoted to old-car matters The Dawn of "The Daimler" Last month's issue of Motor Sport had quite a Daimler flavour to it, what with my description of an outing up Shelsley Walsh in the British Leyland Heritage/Coventry Museum's fine big Edwardian of that make, and my article about the motor-cars of Mr. Bolton, a gentleman who had a preference for Daimlers and drove them at Shelsley...

HERE and THERE By "Camshaft"

IH IE IR IE and 111H IE IR IE 'at-rtshaft" Scouring the Crankcase. IT is common knowledge that when a car is new the oil in the crankcase should be drained off and replenished by fresh lubricant after a few hundred miles.

THE ESSEX MOTOR CLUB'S BROOKLANDS THOUGH compared with the meetings of the B.A.R.C., the series of races arranged at Brook lands on Saturday, August the 14th, by the Essex Motor Club provided some very good sport, and exciting finishes were witnessed.

Matters of the Moment

Practically every sport and pastime is served...

SPORTS MACHINES ON TEST. A RUN ON A 680 c.c. ZENITH. By A.A.R. IAM going to permit myself to indulge in a complete 2eulogy on this machine, for it is impossible to criticize any important point in the performance or structural details of the bike. One can usually indulge in a mild grouse concerning such things as front brakes, tool-bags and the like, but even here I am stumped. I tried to...

EASTER MONDAY AT BROOKLANDS First B.A.R.C. Meeting. BA.R.C. weather is by now traditionally excellent, . and Easter Monday was no exception. Great things were expected at this meeting, for it was promised that Major Segrave and perhaps Captain Campbell would perform exhibition laps on their respective record breakers, but to everyone's disappointment neither car was brought out, though the Napier...
