Vintage Postbag

Sunbeam Sidelines Sir, I found the article on the 3-litre Sunbeam in last month's issue most interesting and informative. The speculation as to why this advanced design was only taken to Le Mans once will, I suspect, continue for a long time. Starting with 1924, could one of the factors influencing the decision to withdraw the Le Mans entry have been the Coatalen/Bentley duel in Autocar? The...

Editorial Notes.

There has recently been a sharp revival of the old controversy as to whether motoring competitions should be held on Sundays. This arose out of a police prosecution at P-wllheli, where a member of the Liverpool Motor Club was summoned under a three hundred year old Act for "congregating outside his own parish in concourse with other people on Sunday for the purpose of sport and pastime." What the...

THE 20/60 VAUXHALL VELOX SALOON ON THE ROAD. By R. L. W. S INCE the famous Luton firm of Vauxhall's made a radical change in its policy, it had not fallen to my lot to drive one of the productions resulting from the revised methods of manufacture, for none of the new models falls into the category of " sports cars," and indeed, the rumour was well broadcast that the Vauxhall had become "...

The Yellow Rose

30 years on Trevor Taylor reflects contentedly on his life in Jim Clark's shadow "Even on the road, I don't drive quickly, me. I live in Yorkshire and used to pop down to Ledbury to see John Thornburn. John could do it in an hour and half; I did it in two and a half hours. I'd get up early in the morning to miss the traffic and the maximum I do is 60, 65mph. I don't know why! But I used to be a...

I rallied one

Andy DawsonThis all-rounder managed something works drivers never could – he won a UK rally in a Stratos… “It was quite simple, really. I was looking for a car and went to Graham Warner and asked if we could do a deal for the Tour of Dean in his Chequered Flag car. That was at the beginning of 1976, and Motor Sport’s Clive Richardson sat next to me. Unfortunately the gearbox jammed but we made it...

Lombard RAC Rally of Great Britain

Imagine a Wembley cup final taking place after the champions had clinched their position in a semi-final. Such a match, merely to determine runners-up, would be low in spectacle, devoid of significance, and by no means an attractive, sparkling package capable of generating excitement on the customary Wembley scale. Fortunately, the same criteria do not apply to rallying, and even though the World...
