The Cars of Sir Ralph Millais, Bt.

Described to the Editor in a recent interview Sir Ralph Millais, Bt., whose V12 4-litre Sunbeam "Tiger" and Type 59 3.3-litre G.P. Bugatti are a warmly appreciated feature of present-day V.S.C.C. race meetings, inherits his love of good motor cars from his father, who, before the 1914/18 war used to indulge in long runs in a 25 h.p.

THE VETERAN C.C. RALLY AND HILL CLIMB AT TILBURSTOW The Veteran Car Club, under the able guidance of its hon. secretary, Capt. J. H. Wylie, goes about its business so unobtrusively that it is difficult indeed to believe that it has, in actual fact, 208 members who between them own about 140 genuine, pre-1905 cars. It seems to us that owners of veteran cars may be divided into three distinct...

THE "105" TALBOT SALOON THERE is something rather stirring about the name "105 Talbot." It recalls the sight of those three silent speedy looking green cars driven by Brian Lewis, Rose-Richards and Saunders Davies, which made such an impression in the Double Twelve race at Brooklands at Ulster, and at Le Mans. Speed with silence is likewise the outstanding characteristic of the sports chassis,...

A Racing Car's Birthday

On July 7th, 1908, three great 12-litre Halm started in the French Grand Prix over the Dieppe circuit and in due time, in fact eight hours, seven minutes and 56 seconds later, that driven by Cagno finished the 477-mile race in 11th place. This remarkable motor-car later ran at Brooklands, only to vanish with the mists of time and the onrush of a World War. Fortunately it surfaced in Norfolk some...

Donington Park racing

Once again Tom Wheatcroft is going to try and get motor racing going again on the revised Donington Park circuit, with the first meetings scheduled for this spring. Twice in the past it has looked as though racing was going to start, but unforeseen legal hassles and planning problems have held things up, so let us hope that it is a case of third time lucky. At the moment the plans are that the...

Some Cars in War-Time

Some Cars in War-Time S. H. Statham reminds us that, war or no war, you can't quench enthusiasm for the Sport.—Ed. IF taken merely as a matter of miles, my motoring during the war has not been appreciably less than what it was in peace-time. This motoring has, however, been practically all of what one describes as "of an official nature," and not by any means the type of thing one would bother to...

The Roesch Talbots

Sir, During twenty years of enjoyment from Motor Sport, I have often felt that you, Mr. Editor, sometimes sniff and push back tears of a type peculiar to K.J. Campbell, Esq., and others who can and do appreciate machinery of the Roesch Talbot ilk and therefore publish their letters in sympathy. Having driven 250,000 miles in cars of every description, my most humble opinion is that old man Roesch...
