Vintage Postbag

Williams Sir, I can add a bit more, based on meeting and corresponding with Mrs. Williams some while ago. The information indeed was published in Bugantics and The Autocar but is perhaps worth repeating. William Charles Frederick Grover-Williams (to get it quite right) was born on the outskirts of Paris at Montrouge on January 16th, 1903 and was arrested by the Gestap at the house of Robert...

Brief flash of hope

Star by name but not in the event; this powerful machine didn’t live up to its maker’s expectations It’s a while since I squeezed between the gleaming pillars that mark the mouth of Queens Gate Place Mews – a shame as this quiet corner of Kensington regularly sees some glorious road and racing cars trundling over the cobblestones in and out of various dealers. This area has been the home of many...

BRM Auction Sale At the Motofair at Earls Court, on October 22nd, the remains of the BRM works team were put up for auction by Christie's, the Hon. Patrick Lindsay running the sale with a delightful touch of gentleness and efficiency, his auctioneering technique being qui te charming.

Silverstone VSCC

Although 'new' cars were thin on the ground at the VSCC's traditional April season-opener at Silverstone, there was a healthy entry for the eleven-race programme and some close-fought finishes. And after Friday's wash-out test day it was a relief to find Saturday 13th calm and sunny all day. A capacity field of 34 starters contested the Brooks 1950's Sports Car Race, with the front row of Frank...

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 &...

Silverstone Shorts

Apart from the opening fly-past by the Griffon-engined Spitfire, there was anotner tribute to Pat Lindsay: his own Spitfire was parked at the end of the Paddock, flanked by his Rolls-Royce tourer and Monza Alfa Romeo and at the end of the Meeting Tony Bianchi did some more low-level fly-pasts with it. It was very much a Maserati day, and D.S.J is dealing with these cars, but it can be said that...

Pure class

Now in its fifth year, the Silverstone International Historic Festival continues to go from strength to strength. The 1994 version, supported for the second year by Coys, admirably upheld the tradition by attracting the best fields to be seen at any historic event this year. When the British summer broke with a vengeance for part of Sunday, it did little to dilute the sizeable crowd's enjoyment....

Peter Green's 1933 Ex-Straight / Seaman K3 MG Magnette

Peter Green's 1933 Ex-Straight / Seaman K3 MG Magnette IT IS always a pleasure to encounter almost-original historic cars. So I was fortunate last month to drive Peter Green's 1933 K3 MG, which he part-shares with David Dutton. This is one afoot very many of these classic MGs, still in more or less unchanged guise since the days of its considerable and successful pre-war racing career. MG...

Alfa Romeo 8C/35

In the interview with Dan Margulies in the April issue of Motor Sport he mentioned that his enthusiasm for motor racing was started in 1937, when he saw Hans Ruesch win the Grand Prix in Bucharest in a 3.8-litre Alfa Romeo 8C/35. For British motor racing enthusiasts this particular Alfa Romeo also holds an important place in history. It was one of the last of the 8C/35 models to be raced by the...
