By the Brighton bush telegraph

Members of the press travelled down in a 1932 33-seater ex-Paris Renault 'bus, provided for the occasion by Adams Bristow Ltd.

VETERAN SPECIALIST (Continued from the February issue) AFTER the Kent Messenger run in September. 1934, there was nothing until the "Brighton" in November. The 1903 Lanchester had been running solely on the low-tension magneto ignition, although a trembler coil and wipe H.T. ignition was fitted. Upton said that coil ignition was often fitted as an extra and was original, and that if we ran on...

Veteran specialist

Francis Hutton-Stott Jnr, has concentrated all his energies on veteran motoring. In this interesting article he describes one of his historic cars— his 1903 2-cylinder Lanchester—not from the "museum" aspect, but as it was prepared and run in Veteran CC and other events, a task Hutton-Stott applied himself to as thoroughly as other enthusiasts do participation in racing, sprint events and trials...

A Paris-Vienna De Dietrich

Sir, I was very interested to read, in your "Cars in Books" article, the reference to Lord Iveagh's 1902 De Dietrich Paris-Vienna racing car. Your theory that this was the car involved in the accident with the oak gate near Pigsty Corner may well be correct, and when I acquired the car from Francis Hutton-Stott in 1965 it bore unmistakable signs of an accident at some time in its life, the...

A section devoted to old-car matters The V.S.C.C. Presteigne Rally (October 5/6th) The annual Vintage S.C.C. Presteigne Rally has a tradition dating back to pre-war days and this year the pilgrimage into wild wet Welsh Wales again took place and the old cars were once again given the freedom of Presteigne. A very big entry had been received, numbering 59 for the Sunday trial alone, which, in...

OBITUARY IT IS with sorrow that we heard of the death last August of that great veteran-car enthusiast, Francois W. Hutton-Stott, following a long illness. Francis discovered the fun of unearthing and using pre-I905 cars when he was living with his parents near the Hog's Back in Surrey. in 1931. With the aid of the knowledgeable family-chauffeur, George Upton, he set about finding such cars and...

WB miscellany

From track to traffic I have previously recalled the excitement which the reappearance of ancient giant ex-racing and similar cars created when they began to run at VSCC meetings from 1936 on. During WWI such cars were commandeered for military service. It was rumoured that General von Hindenberg's staff car was one of the huge Benz touring versions of the racing Blitzen Benz, and Capt Malcolm...

Late Entry

Sir, Your article 'Stranger than Fiction" in the October edition refers to a bogus entry in the 1995 Brighton Run. This prompts me to pose the question as to what was the latest car ever to be given an official entry to the Run. I would stake a claim for my father's entry in 1938. In that year my father, Harold White, bought an old Humber which he found in a garage in WarIingham, Surrey, for £12/...

Veterans At Dorking

If the worst weather of the year is traditionally laid on for the Brighton Run, it seems that the Veteran Car Club can count on the best for its Dorking Speed Hill-Climb, and on July 26th the day was just as hot and fine as it was last year. For the oldest cars with one or two cylinders, the ascent is more in the nature of a test-hill than a sprint, but none failed to make the climb, and G. A....
