The Brooklands reminiscences of G.P. Harvey Noble

Recounted to the Editor in a recent interview I think that George Harvey Noble has every right, with the late J. G. Parry Thomas, to be remembered as "Mr. Brooklands". He spent so much time at the Track at Weybridge that he had to give up two lucrative businesses. He raced a great variety of cars there, did almost daily stints of test driving, and knew every bump and contour, curve and angle of...

Club News

We hear A well-preserved and very small vintage Mercedes tourer of 12-h.p. is to be seen in the Crystal Palace district. The June V.C.C. event seemed to attract vintage small cars, in addition to veterans and Edwardians. We noted a truly beautiful "10/23" Talbot two-seater, an "8/18  Talbot-Darracq two-seater, Barker's "11.4" Lagonda coupé, which went on to the Lagonda C.C. Rally at Northampton...

A whiff of old Brooklands

The Young Special When a respected monthly motoring contemporary published a picture of Tom Walker's Young Special at the VSCC Donington Park race meeting last year it bore a caption suggesting that this car has "the double disadvantage of having a Frazer Nash chassis and a one-off engine which was built for Brooklands but never even got off the line there." This caused me to raise an eyebrow (in...

Those chronic straight-eights

The editor enlarges on the theory of Lord Montagu's that the craze for the straight-eight engine led several British car manufacturers into bankruptcy. In his excellent study of motoring's "Lost Causes" in the book of that name published by Cassell & Co. in 1960, Lord Montagu of Beaulieu put forth the theory that it was the obsession to have a straight-eight model in their range that had sent...

Motoring with Bill Little

Motoring with Bill Little THE social side of motoring was well in evidence at Bristol, as a substitute for going to every possible pre-war Brooklands and Crystal Palace race meeting, and as many speed trials and hillclimbs as possible. When a petrol ration was available, Bill had exchanged the "Spook" for a 1930 International Aston Martin (GK 9843). Not a good car, it did all sorts of nasty...

V-to-C Miscellany

Last October's "Getting It Right" article has caused a reader to point out errors of our own; Margaret Allen should read Allan and Earl Howe drove an Alfa Romeo in the 1933 not the 1935 TT. An error by the Brooklands Society has also been noted; their greetings car with Roy Nockolds painting of Mays's ERA and Bira's Maserati is titled "The Last Race at Brooklands". But neither drivers nor cars...

EASTER MONDAY AT BROOKLANDS HIGH SPEEDS BUT FEW CLOSE FINISHES. MRS. PETRE WINS A RACE AT 118 M.P.H. AND OLIVER BERTRAM ONE AT 124 M.P.H. GOOD "MOUNTAIN" RACES. BROOKLANDS is a queer place. Sometimes a B.A.R.C. Meeting is crowded with close finishes-and the spectators go. away dissatisfied. At other times the handicapping is indifferent-and yet everyone is enthusiastic at the finish and leaves...
