The Aero Engine that Never Was A motoring scribe has to be so very careful. Witness the case of the man who makes racing and sports-cars on a modest scale and who some time ago announced a flat-twin baby aero-motor. Full particulars and a power-curve were forthcoming, but when a photographer went in search of the engine it was not to be found. Subsequently it was discovered that it never got as...

Veteran to classic -- VSCC Silverstone

Vintage Sports-Car Club racing opened at a cold "new Silverstone" on April 20, using the 1.7-mile National circuit, the 10-race programme oversubscribed, with 286 entrants. After the customary 30 minute High Speed Trial, in which only Walker's 1935 Alvis retired and Bowles' TT Ford V8, Mrs Monro's big Alvis and Beattie's Frazer Nash failed to attain their qualifying requirements, the Fox &...

On a mild disturbance in the Midlands

During February 1944, that wartime-formed body, the Midland Motoring Enthusiasts' Club, published, in the motoring Press, an invitation to the secretaries of the various motoring clubs to attend a meeting at which it was proposed to discuss a scheme which the MMEC had formulated in an attempt to reorganise the Sport after the war, and generally further motorists' interests. Twelve clubs were...

About the H.E.

Capt. Alan Southon describes his rebuilt 1923 2-litre version of this rare vintage car and adds some technical and historical data on 4-cylinder H.E.s in general. Since returning home from overseas I have been slightly surprised at the interest displayed by chance acquaintances in my rather elderly 2-litre H.E., which I have just relicensed. It occurs to me, therefore, that a description of this...

Personality Parade

A Series of Interviews with Personalities famous in the Realms of Motoring Sport No. 5 — Cecil Clutton Cecil Clutton has largely antiquarian interests. This is apparent not only in his connection with vintage and veteran motor cars, but in his other hobbies, which include collecting old watches, of which he has some fine examples, dating as far back as 1693. He is also a keen student of ancient...

For the Outer Circuit Sometimes you may visit Brooklands and learn nothing of interest, whereas another visit will reveal something very unexpected. Running out of fuel on the Railway Straight last month E. W. W. Pacey had the misfortune to do likewise and the imposing singleseater Pacey-Hassan-Special duly stopped just behind our Frazer-Nash. Thus it came about that we knew, before a lot of...

veteran edwardian vintage

VETERAN EDWARDIAN VINTAGE A SECTION DEVOTED TO OLD CAR MATTERS A Possible Yardstick THOSE in the fortunate position of being able to afford to buy a good vintage, post-vintage thoroughbred or classic car have a difficult choice to make, as study of the many very covetable examples advertised each month in MOTOR SPORT underlines. For those in this difficult position there is a possible yardstick...

Lunch with... Bill Boddy

It’s not usual for a magazine to interview its own staff – but Motor Sport has always been different. Simon Taylor talks to the man who made it so In August 1924 a car-mad 11-year-old schoolboy went to Marylebone railway station with his mother. He was already a dedicated reader of The Autocar, on which he spent his 4d a week pocket money, and whenever one of his mother’s friends gave him a tip...

Odd Things Odd and retrograde things are happening in this little Island. In August the petrol ration may be reduced, while in future purchase tax doubles on cars priced at over £1,000. Gransden was almost washed out by bureaucracy and only saved by the diplomatic intervention of David Hodkin and Cecil Clutton, necessitating much rushing hither and thither in the latter's powerful Bugatti. These...
