The clubs at Silverstone

Maidstone & Mid-Kent MC chose delightful weather for its Silverstone race meeting on May 24th, which started late, but was run off efficiently, over the "long" Club circuit. The seven-lap 1,100-cc sports-car race should have been a gift for Len Gibbs' Riley, but it was not on form, so C le S Metcalfe won after a steady drive in his Persil-uniform and Balilla Fiat, Gibbs second, Wilson's "...

Exciting V.S.C.C. Meeting at Luton Hoo

Walker (E.R.A.) Wins £75 Prize. Poore's 3.8-litre Alfa-Romeo Makes F.T.D. on Extra Run. The Vintage S.C.C. ran a successful, if autumnal, speed trial over the exciting 1 1/2-mile course at Luton Hoo, by permission of Sir Harold Wernher, on October 9th. Last year the course was slightly shorter. The road is wide and well surfaced and embraces an S-bend taken both ways of the course, as cars turn...

WET COURSE SLOWS DOWN INTERNATIONAL PRESCOTT MEETING P. D. C. Walker (E.R.A.) Proves "Rain Master" on Magnificent Fastest Run THE weather gods were cruel indeed to the B.O.C. on September 12th. Practice day enjoyed perfect conditions, and was enlivened by the astonishing Freikaiserwagen unofficially beating Gerard's course-record, by Leslie Allard equalling Whincop's sports-car record, and, alas...

Veteran - Edwardian - vintage: a section devoted to old-car matters

4th International Rally of Veteran Car Clubs (May 10th/11th) This rally, organised jointly by the V.C.C. and V.S.C.C., was another excellent gathering of historic vehicles sponsored by National Benzole. The entry of 311 cars ranged from the 1896 Arnold Motor Carriage to one of the most diverse assembly ever of vintage makes, and terminated in a colossal cavalcade round Goodwood, in which some of...

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...

My cars

By L/Cpl. CLIVE EDWARDS, Bart. [Sir Clive Edwards, well known as the driver of an R-type M.G. in racing events, is now a Lance-Corporal in the R.A.S.C. He is running an H.R.G. and wrote the following article for us after night duty. The series "Cars I Have Owned" has proved so popular that we have no compunction about publishing virtually two such articles in one issue. Ed.] I CANNOT remember...

Shelsley Walsh Review

"Thunder at Shelsley Walsh" - that might well be the title of this review of the first post-war Shelsley, the first International event on the British Calendar since hostilities ceased. The rain was torrential and spoilt any chace of fast times. Nevertheless, the crowd was quite up to pre-war standards; indeed at half-time a line of cars a mile long awaited admittance to the famous Worcestershire...

Club News

We Hear B. H. Banes reports several interesting encounters during a holiday in N. Wales. In Ludlow an early "Twenty" Rolls and a well-kept Trojan tourer, later another, badge-bearing Trojan tourer, in Wales itself, a fine 18-h.p. Star in Portmadoc, an early 8.3-h.p. Renault 2-seater in Aberson and a "10/23" Talbot in Bangor. Home again, a Lloyd "350" was seen in Ledbury, where a few J.M.B. 3-...

Gerard does it again

At Stanmer Park. But his E.R.A. crashes beyond the finish. Poore's Alfa Romeo Runner-up. Cooper's Cooper "1,000" fastest unsupercharged car. Delays hold-up the meeting. A new course is always of interest, especially in this country, where sprint events are our only solace. The four-fifths of a mile course at Stanmer Park is situated in picturesque surroundings in the best old-time speed trial...

Club News

We Hear News of the fate of two more veteran racing cars is to hand from the pen of S. A. Gibbons, of Wanganui, New Zealand. He reports that a pre-1914 G.P. Vauxhall, said to be Hancock's, was imported by W. J. Scott, of Christchurch, about 1913 and raced in hill-climbs and at beach events very successfully in the early days of the Kaiser War. It thereafter changed hands many times and round...
