The Roads of the 1920s

Having returned from his Continental tour in a 14/45hp Poppe-designed Rover tourer, as we described in the November 1986 MOTOR SPORT, Owen John, whose vintage exploits we are looking back on, decided he could forego the 1925 Olympia Motor Show, important as that was, and take his usual autumnal voyage to Scotland for the shooting season, staying 20 miles from the nearest railway station....

Forgotten makes: No 85 Lammas-Graham

Trans-Atlantic tie-up The project of the enthusiastic Lord Avebury, who thought that an Anglo-American car based on Graham components might be viable in the mid-1930s following in the tradition of such makes as the Allard, Railton, Jensen, Batten Special and Brough Superior, the Lammas-Graham took shape in the offices of Cleverlys Ltd, at 32 St Mary Abbot's Terrace in Kensington. Cleverlys was...

The Rootes Group and Competition Motoring

An Interview with Norman Garrad, Competition and Sales Manager of Sunbeam Limited, about the Lessons Learned and the Successes Achieved in Competition Events, with Special Reference to the Arduous Alpine Rally.

Veteran to classic: RAC road rallies

A serious business Modern rallies are usually fast thrashes through forests in specialised cars, or something similarly tough on Continental roads. But it was not always like that, and the younger generation may well have little idea of how pre-war rallies, contested mainly over long mileages on public roads, were run. In 1982 the RAC remembered the kind of cars which competed in such contests...

Happy birthday I must say I am rather glad that Motor Sport is not yet 100 years old. Just as it was the first sporting motor journal, so The Autocar was the first British motoring weekly. The first issue of what is now Autocar was published in November 1895 and the magazine's 100th birthday has now been marked with a stupendous 365-page (400 if you include the normal contents) issue. As Motor...

Reports of Recent Events

N.W. London M.C. Lawrence Cup Trial Those who expected this oft-postponed event to flop because of summer conditions got the surprise of their lives at Bagshot Heath on the day selected. Torrential rain fell much of the time and between sections Potter's passenger wisely erected her umbrella above the AlIard. Red Roads wasn't too difficult, but failed some of the smaller cars. Len Parker used the...

Rolls-Royces in old age In his recently-published book on Rolls Royce, George Oliver has a chapter entitled "See how they last", covering some of the older models still in use. The author tells us he has consulted not only almost every motor journal but also all manner of newspapers and magazines, such as The Illustrated London News and The Tatler, so what follows is unlikely to be new to him....
