Pure class

Now in its fifth year, the Silverstone International Historic Festival continues to go from strength to strength. The 1994 version, supported for the second year by Coys, admirably upheld the tradition by attracting the best fields to be seen at any historic event this year. When the British summer broke with a vengeance for part of Sunday, it did little to dilute the sizeable crowd's enjoyment....

VSCC 1986 Race Finale at Donington

Nick Mason Wins Motor Sport  Brooklands Memorial Trophy In marvellous September weather the Vintage SCC concluded its 1986 race programme with the Shuttleworth & Nuffield Trophies Meeting at the efficient Donington Park circuit. The new VSCC President, Roger Collings, drove his Speed Six Bentley in one of the handicap races. All the events were run off very expeditiously, starting with the...

Hannen fodder

The traditional June Silverstone VSCC meeting was the penultimate event to be held on the old club circuit, prior to the various F1-instigated revisions, and featured an all-ERA (or ERA-engined) race to commemorate the Bourne marques 60th anniversary. The opening event, for the Bill Phillips Trophy proved some consolation for Martin Stretton. Having suffered an engine failure at the wheel of...

VETERAN TO CLASSIC Maserati V8 RI

As we saw in Part Two 4502 remained almost unchanged through to 1949, apart from the engine capacity being reduced to 3 litres for the Indianapolis rules. It then almost lost its identity when the Granatelli brothers changed it into a Grancor, installing a 4-cylinder Offenhauser engine and making a completely new body bearing no resemblance to the original Maserati one. The Maserati engine went...

Redline

Photography: Phil Jones Nowhere in living memory has the development of grand prix motor racing been more thoroughly demonstrated than during the Vintage Sports Car Club's See Red Festival at Donington Park. Taking the established See Red event, the VSCC...

Silverstone Snippets

The High Speed Trial gives beginners a chance to try their hand at lapping the club circuit at any speed they like, competing against the VSCC by trying to qualify, as it is not a race. Of the 30 starters, eight failed to finish in the 40 minutes and eleven did not qualify, showing it to be harder than it looks. Successful were Mrs Gina Barker in the 328 FN-BMW, White's Dixon Riley, Weeks' 61/2-...

VSCC Mallory Park

The VSCC was graced with a fabulous summer's day for its annual visit to Mallory Park, attracting what was probably the largest crowd since the Williams Trophy meeting has found its home in Leicestershire. All events produced healthy grids, assisted by the expedient of combining some categories, which resulted in some interesting variety, and a number of cars not regularly seen in VSCC racing....

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...

Mallory Park VSCC

In only its third visit to Mallory, the VSCC has proved that it has found an excellent home for the Williams Monaco Trophy race, formerly based at Cadwell Park, and this year's event on the 18th July produced a superb battle for the meeting's title race. In recent years the race, for two-seater Grand Prix cars, has struggled to attract a representative entry and although this year saw only ten...

Miscellany

So extremely popular have been MGs that a great number of books have covered their design, development, the different models and their racing and rally successes. I have 26 on my bookshelves and that is only part of it. Haynes has now included another, MGB by David Knowles. It covers the MGC and MGB GT V8, with data on each, but is mainly a vivid colour kaleidoscope on miscellaneous items,...
