VSCC Herefordshire Trial

The VSCC started its 1996 trials season with the Herefordshire Trial on February 17. A good start, the weather not too cold and the gales subsiding beforehand, for the 104 entries. Hamish Moffatt had been out fixing the "sections", with enough hills to delete any whose condition on the day made them inadvisable. This left a dozen good but comparatively easy ones, reported as enjoyable. "Royal...

Air A Mild Mystery

Having got over a phobia I had as a boy, that if I took too great an interest in aeroplanes this might detract from my enthusiasm for cars (earlier I had dreaded becoming a teenager, in the belief that then all I would require from life would be playing football, which proved far from the case), I pursued both interests without anxiety and contributed to motoring and aviation Journals. Thus,...

Sir Re your May (p.478) speculations about Bugatti Type 35 "T", 131 A, now at Coys with a price tag of £275,500 attached to it. It is odd that nobody has thought to consult Alan Crisp about this car, for he knew more about it in modern times than almost anybody else, having owned it for twenty years from approximately 1967-87, when he sold it to Bill Lake, who passed it on to Hamish Moffatt, etc...

Veteran Edwardian Vintage

A Section Devoted To Old Car Matters VSCC Lakeland Trial, November 9th: On the way to this year's edition of that notoriously tough vintage event, the Lakeland Trial organised by Dick Smith and Frank Rushton, I came to the conclusion that whether competitors drive or trail their cars to the event is now about 50/50. At all events, on the excellent M6 I passed Peacop driving his 1930 Morris Minor...

Veteran - Edwardian - Vintage

A section devoted to old-car matters VSCC— "The Welsh" (October 8 /9th) This is the title by which the Vintage SCC's Presteigne Week-End is now generally known. The formula was as before, however, with the choice of a minimum 200-mile road run on the Saturday and a trial on the Sunday (entry=70) or a Concours d'Elegance and driving-tests at Presteigne/Knighton on the Saturday only (entry=27)....

The VSCC in Herefordshire

Early in March, the VSCC trialists assembled at that most useful venue The Verzons, near Ledbury, for the Herefordshire Trial. Entries were down this year, from 105 in 1992 to a nonetheless respectable 87, and were divided into two classes: short and longer wheelbase. As an additional post-birthday treat I was allowed to ride as 'navigator' to Seymour Price in his son's Austin 7 Ulster. As...
