VSCC at Bisley

If the VSCC Bisley Rallies come rather close one to another and display little originality in the matter of driving tests, they constitute an excellent excuse for interesting cars to congregate and are widely enjoyed.

V.S.C.C at Bisley

V.S.C.C. at Bisley Another Series of driving teats at Ilkley was held by the Vintage S.C.C. on February 18th, and the boys and girls gathered as muclt to admire the ktsserabled ears as to watch the t Ratite-71V res. A hill stop-and-restart failed many. Carlisle's smart 0.M. stopping low down, Firkins' 1914 Hamlett and Elwell Smith's 1928 Aston-Martin half-way up, Hill's 1912 11-ispano-Suiza....
