V.S.C.C. Pomeroy Memorial Trophy Competition

This contest was instituted by the late Laurence Pomeroy in memory of his father, who designed Vauxhall and Daimler cars of the vintage era. He gave a Rex Hays' model of a 1914 G.P. Vauxhall as a prize, stipulating that various tests be held to determine the best all-round touring car. Now that Laurence Pomeroy, too, is dead, this competition constitutes a fitting memorial to both father and son...

Clubs news

Ulster A.C. The July issue of the Monthly Review contains a good report of the County Down Trophy Race from various aspects together with several very excellent photographs. Those who were at the race and have not seen a copy should write for one—we can find no price on the cover, but no doubt club funds are open to fortification!

Racer, author, survivor

Hans Ruesch won scores of pre-war races and then turned to authorship Hans Ruesch is about the last of the pre-war racers who is still with us. He was born in Naples in 1913, his mother a Neapolitan-speaking Swiss, his father a German-born industrial archaeologist, so the boy spoke both languages, and later added two more. After five years at a Swiss boarding school Ruesch went to Zurich...

The JCC Brooklands high speed trials

Bill Boddy looks at an ingenious pre-war event in which beginners and expert drivers alike could enjoy a taste of speed without too much risk to their cars It was the idea of the Junior Car Club to have a high speed trial at Brooklands embracing a slice of road-circuit driving.

EASTER 1970.—Last year we had quite a lot of motoring to do over Easter, in the comfort and security of a Rover V8.

So the Editor contented himself with checking up on some vintage cars on Good Friday, returning hastily from...

Veteran Edwardian Vintage

A section devoted to old-car matters Brookland's Fastest Cars In the stop-press report of the VSCC Silverstone Meeting I wrote for last month's issue I mentioned that the Hon. Patrick Lindsay had the Multi-Union II in a race for the first time since 1939 and then, inadvertently, I said that it was the second-fastest car round Brooklands.
