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 &...

VSCC 1986 Race Finale at Donington

The new VSCC President, Roger Collings, drove his Speed Six Bentley in one of the handicap races. All the events were run off very expeditiously, starting with the...

Veteran to classic: VSCC Donington

Mayman rules! Donington Park saw the Vintage SportsCar Club's 1988 racing finale on September 17, its vast paddock (ready for Formula One hospitality units and workshops) well able to accommodate the 138 vintage entrants as well as the transporters for Sunday's Saloon-Car Festival. Therein was an array of Hyper Lea-Francis for a parade to commemorate to the day Kaye Don's TT victory, Tom Delaney...

Veteran to classic -- VSCC Prescott

One of the Best With sunshine, large crowds spectating at both practice and the climbs, and a record entry of 230, the VSCC's annual speed hillclimb on August 4th at the delightful Bugatti OC's Prescott course was one of the best-ever. Anthony Mayman made best time in his ERA R4D, just below his record, with a truly smooth ascent (41.34 s). Best vintage time was made by a determined Julian Majzub...

Veteran to classic -- historic racing

Historic Racing Activities The talking-point in historic racing circles this year has been the Vintage Sports Car Club's controversial decision to admit rear-engined cars to its races for pre-1960 Grand Prix machinery, and the effects it is having. It's an old argument. On the one side, logic says that if races are open to cars built before 1960, they should include any car built before 1960,...

Veteran to classic -- VSCC

The Entertainers Anthony Mayman had his worst day in many at a VSCC race meeting when he won only one race at Donington Park on Whit Monday, and was second in two others. At the same meeting, the first of two planned Donington visits by the VSCC this year, John Harper won twice. The day started badly when Alastair Pugh overturned his Frazer Nash during practice, and was taken to hospital with...

An English Prescott Sunday

The late EKH Karslake expressed the opinion that the older racing cars were at their best when their engines had warmed up but before they had become too hot. That being the case, it was just as well that the globe in the area of Cheltenham decided to warm up less on August 5, when the VSCC made its annual onslaught of Prescott hill, than it had all the preceding week. Nevertheless, more engines...

'Ring Leaders

While the title may make British brows furrow in distaste, the annual "Oldtimer Grand Prix" at the new Nurburgring is on a much larger scale than any vintage or classic meeting in this country. To begin with, it combines all ages of car; the Oldtimer tag in its German sense is an all-embracing term covering every era from pioneer vehicles up to Can-Am racers of the Seventies. It is a convenient...

From the archives -- Connaught

The First to Succeed The B-Type Formula One Connaught holds a very special place in British motor racing history. It came at a time when Britain, newly re-committed to Grand Prix racing, was still struggling against the established Continental constructors. Enthusiasts had lived through the frustration of the failed V16 BRM programme, and then the unfulfilled promise of the newer British...

Veteran to classic -- VSCC

VSCC at Mallory Park The VSCC had a successful race meeting at Mallory Park on July 7th, the tight little 1.35 mile circuit where spectators can see the racing almost the entire way round with the lake as a picturesque backdrop, well suited to the older cars, on this the VSCC's first visit. The Paddock is rough surfaced and one has to wait until the track is clear to enter it, as no vehicle...
