Having lost the use of Oulton Park and Cadwell Park from its regular calendar of race meetings, the VSCC has sought to fill the voids and maintain its programme of six race events by using Pembrey and, for the first time, travelling to the continent in the tracks of the HSCC and 750 Motor Club, hosting a meeting at the twisty, 1.19-mile circuit at Coix-en-Ternois, close to Arras in north-eastern...

Around the tracks

VSCC: Prescott Dean's Bugatti scorches to the top Charles Dean maintained his strong run of form to take FTD with his Bugatti Type 51 in the VSCC's traditional August hillclimb at Prescott The hugely popular event was blessed with glorious weather for all but the latter runs and, in spite of the increasingly damp and slippery conditions, Dean stopped the clock at 43sec on his second run to clip...

50 years on

In order to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of VE Day, the HSCC hosted a one-off two-day Historic race meeting at Donington Park, and with the assistance of a number of specialist clubs and groups, including the VSCC and HGPCA, assembled a quite superb entry, which, in terms of variety and quality, was second only to the Coys Festival in the British racing calendar, with on-track action being...

VSCC Silverstone

THE HON. PATRICK LINDSAY won three of the eight races at a first-class Vintage SCC meeting over Silverstone's Club circuit on April 17th, watched by a considerable crowd of enthusiasts in the chilly sunshine. Some exciting racing and no accidents made it a memorable afternoon's sport, starting with the 40 min. High Speed Trial incorporating a compulsory wheel change. Interesting runners were...

Veteran - Edwardian - Vintage

A Section Devoted to Old-Car MattersVSCC Silverstone meeting (April 29th) The vintage SCC encountered a very watery day for their first race meeting of 1972, so that the absence of simple covered bays in the Silverstone Paddock, such as were provided at Brooklands 65 years ago, seemed a scandal and my personal grievance on these occasions is that the once so useful Press box in the Paddock is,...

A Wet Colerne

The VSCC's requests to the weather-gods met with a bleak reception on April 21, when the Colerne speedtrials were run off. Rain bucketed down for the practice runs and a cold wind added to the unpleasantness. But a great many onlookers came, and although the motorcycle demonstrations were cancelled for safety reasons, pedal-power was deemed less risky, and the bicycle races took place. This year...

VSCC Colerne speed trials

The VSCC sprint at this RAF airfield occupied the afternoon of April 24, in reasonably good weather. David Baldock in the 2-litre Alta made excellent starts and deserved his FTD, in 23.15 sec, although the engine was boiling before its second run, not good for this particular car I would have thought! But its times for the 1/4-mile were identical, the overall time only 0.67 sec slower, and the...

Votes for Top Cars

Whatever historians say, 1996 has been accepted in most quarters as the year in which the centenary of the British motor Industry should be celebrated. That has sparked off some very interesting opinion polls, only as to which were the leading British makes but which, in the opinion of the voters, are the all-time top motor-cars. One such poll was organised by Classic & Sportscar which...

Pilkington class

The VSCC's racing season opened with the traditional Silverstone fixture on April 3, a healthy 270-car entry being attracted for the 11-race programme. Debuting Sean Danaher's pretty Maserati 4CS in the Fox & Nicholl Trophy, Martin Stretton hounded Richard Pilkington's 4-1/2-litre Talbot T26SS relentlessly after displacing early leader Ian Bentall's 4-1/2-litre Bentley. Although the Maserati...

Matters of Moment

Formula One Policy — No Holds Barred? No wonder Colin Chapman feels like abandoning Formula One Grand Prix motor racing, following the ban placed on his ingenious new Lotus 88 F1 cars. No doubt D.S.J. will be keeping us informed of developments in the Chapman camp and explaining the rights (if any) and wrongs behind the FISA decision. The way the layman-racing-enthusiast must see it is, surely,...
