Any excuse is good enough for a party! The other day the phone rang and Julian Ghosh told me he had remembered that the next day was the 70th anniversary of the loM TT in which three of the Harry Ricardo-engined twin-cam Vauxhalls started and in which Payne's finished third in the big division, behind Jean Chassagne's straight-eight Sunbeam and Clement's three-litre Bentley. As Julian now has the...

Matters of moment

Two weeks ago I found myself hurtling through the Karussel on the Nürburgring's legendary Nordschleife with one Porsche 956 filling my Windscreen and another in the mirrors. At first I thought it was one more variation of a recurrent dream. Cars of this calibre stopped racing around the 13-mile track over a decade ago and, even had they not, it was hard to think of circumstances to place me on...

Austin Asides

Freddie Henry, ex-Austin apprentice, which was appropriate, because he used to be taken to school in 1920 in a blue Austin 20 coupe, wrote a booklet about "The Old Man", the First Baron Austin of Longbridge (1866-1941), for the 50th anniversary last year of the Austin Ex-Apprentices Association. The book contains much interesting material, which Freddie hopes will be read in 2033, at the 100th...

Whatever happened to OE221?

Whatever happened to 0E221? Sir, Mr John Dymond says 0E221 was wrecked by a 3 ton truck in 1943 (Letters, December, 1989). In fact, 1943 0E221 was stored under a dust sheet in Peasley's Garages in Forbes, New South Wales. I know this because it was the first 30/98 I had ever seen and as a youthful owner of a 12/50 ducksback Alvis I used to lift the dust cover and admire it. It must have made a...

Veteran Edwardian Vintage

A section devoted to old-car matters The Brooklands Re-Union The Brooklands Society's annual Re-Union took place on June 26th, in this 70th Anniversary Year of the opening of the Weybridge Track. The one-time Brooklands slogan, "The Right Crowd and No Crowding", seemed almost to be reversed, for so many people attended that the great cavalcade of vehicles, crossing in the afternoon from the...

V-C Miscellany

Charles Atkinson, who has owned his 30-98 Vauxhall 0E28 for some eleven years, succeeds David Marsh as the 30-98 Registrar. He is also engaged in AECC activities, with the intention of installing Liberty V12 aero-engines in 1926 model-AE and 1928 model-AK Minerva chassis. Grand Prix Models tell us that they are importing from Italy FB Model's handmade Alfa Romeo 8C-2900 miniature, which carries...

V-E-V Odds & Ends

— Although the owner of the fine Mercedes illustrated on page 289 of the March issue has not been identified, a telex from Dr. Dennis Parsons, Fellow of Merton College, Oxford, tells us that the photograph was taken in Merton Street, Oxford, and shows the car being driven west along this street, perhaps to Morton, Corpus, Christchurch or Oriel Colleges, so one might perhaps assume the car was...

Lightweight Welsh vintage

The Light Car & Edwardian Section of the VSCC held another of its traditional two-day Welsh events on April 16/17, based at the Abemant Lake Hotel, Llanwrtyd Wells. Saturday afternoon was devoted to the usual driving-tests in the hotel grounds, but punctuated this time by a road run and tests elsewhere — I heard the one-in-four Devil's Staircase mentioned. Sunday wass devoted to the trial,...

VSCC Wessex Trial

Despite a rather gloomy forecast, the 1981 Wessex Trial took place in dry, if cold, weather at the beginning of April. The sections were thus relatively easy and scores high. Barry Clarke once again took premier award with his much modified Austin Chummy, while of the larger cars, Club President Tom Threlfall and his brother-in-law Richard Campbell shared top honours with a brace of Model A Fords...
