Silverstone VSCC

Although 'new' cars were thin on the ground at the VSCC's traditional April season-opener at Silverstone, there was a healthy entry for the eleven-race programme and some close-fought finishes. And after Friday's wash-out test day it was a relief to find Saturday 13th calm and sunny all day. A capacity field of 34 starters contested the Brooks 1950's Sports Car Race, with the front row of Frank...

Silverstone Meeting

The VSCC's August Silverstone Meeting was a great occasion, with interesting aviation and motoring attractions. But the racing was the main part of it. The Hawthorn Memorial Trophy Race was won by Kenneth White's Cooper-Bristol at 70.02mph, from Barrie Williams' Connaught, which made fastest lap at 70.32mph. The Boulogne Trophy Race went to Charles Dean's T51 Bugatti (68.42mph), with Barrie...

Rain won't stop VSCC play

Victory in the Flockhart Trophy for Duncan Ricketts in his E-type ERA in some of the worst conditions imaginable was the key feature of SeeRed, the VSCC’s annual race meeting at Donington Park. With Sunday’s programme run in torrential rain, the track was partly flooded at the Old Hairpin as run-off from the abortive Grand Prix circuit earthworks ran across the track. In conditions that would have...

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...

URE The Winner

Alan Cox applauds the return of vintage racing to Lincs After a three year absence, the VSCC returned to Cadwell Park in mid-August, to the delight of competitors and spectators alike and although a number of regular front-runners were absent due to clashing commitments, there was some entertaining racing in glorious sunshine. The Frazer Nash and GN race opened the nine-race programme with Simon...

Rally review

The 1967 series of European rallies is at present in a period of relaxation for although the number of events that are being held each month is not decreasing, between the Acropolis and the Alpine comes the red period with most of the rallies taking place behind the Iron Curtain. Excellent though these events are, they very rarely attract a full complement of works entries which probably explains...

Italian makes shine but ERAs star

VSCC I Donington Park I Sept 11-12 Ferrari may have been the feature marque at the VSCC Donington event, but the cars from Maranello were completely upstaged by those from Bourne. Marking the 70th anniversary of ERA, two victories for 'Remus' in the hands of Ludovic Lindsay showcased the British marque in fine style. For many of the 12,000 crowd, the all-ERA race was the undoubted highlight of...

VSCC Winter DTs

The VSCC’s Winter DTs took place at the Westcott Venture Park, Waddesdon, where the Clubhouse provides facilities for officials and competitors between bouts of attempted driving skills, which involved 78 entries in a dozen complicated manoeuvres. The vast expanse of the disused aerodrome is ideal for this, but the tests are so scattered that observing them is not easy. However, we noted some...

VSCC Donington

Once again the VSCC's curtain-closer was the Richard Seaman Trophies meeting at Donington Park, where conditions ranged from damp to soaking; but the afternoon's racing contrived to run during the drier interludes. True to recent form, the Brooklands Society Trophy race saw Julian Bronson's Riley Blue Streak lead from the flag, shadowed by Philip Walker's MG K3 replica which finished only a...
