Veteran Edwardian Vintage

A section devoted to old-car matters The VSCC Welsh Week-End The Vintage SCC's Welsh Week-End, dating back to 1939 and based on Presteigne, was as popular as ever this year, but with a bias towards the sporting trial and away from the driving-tests and Concours d'Elegance, in the ratio of 71 entries to 17, a healthy sign. This year both events involved a preliminary 200-mile road section, whereas...

W. 0. Bentley and Harry Weslake
