Cars in Books

What have we this month, for this column, which the Editor of a motoring weekly once said was a good idea except that it would run out of material in a week or so -- but which we have kept going regularly for more than 25 years? Well, from "Backstairs Life in a Country House" by Eileen Balderson with Douglas Goodlad (David & Charles, 1982) the only cars named are three Rolls-Royces which came...

etta• /lewd BUGATTI OWNERS' CLUB The Welsh trial attracted nineteen The Welsh trial attracted nineteen starters in spite of the start being so far from town. Pen-y-Bryn is a tricky hill with three-quarters of a mile of slippery surface, which eaussd four failures. Treveriog was not troublesome and the whole entry sailed up, and Glynceiriog stopped only one car, though it had some nasty bends. The...

EMPIRE TROPHY AFTERTHOUGHTS. TO plan an entirely new circuit at Brooklands and then run a handicap race for cars from 750 c.c. to 3,000 c.c. was a task which must have given Harry Edwards, of the British Racing Drivers Club, many sleepless nights. But everyone who was present at Weybridge on Saturday, June 23rd, must surely agree with us when we vote the British Empire Trophy a really successful...

" BIRA " TWICE BEATEN SENSATIONAL RACING AT THE CLOSING CRYSTAL PALACE MEETING FURTHER ENHANCES ALTA PRESTIGE IN spite of torrential rain, the last Crystal Palace Meeting was immensely enjoyable. It is now a confirmed fact that one does not notice the slowness of the Palace circuit and that Harry Edwards's short races go down very well. The meeting was very fully televised and Dick Seaman started...

" BIRA " MAKES HIS BOW VICTORY IN IMPERIAL TROPHY RACE AT THE CRYSTAL PALACE WITH HIS E.R.A. THE LAP RECORD SET TO 58.63 M.P.H. BY ARTHUR DOBSON (E.R.A.). EXTREMELY CLOSE FINISH. THE last meeting of the season at the Crystal Palace had a hang-over, as it were, of the glamour of Donington the previous Saturday, because Dick Seaman was to do an exhibition run with a Grand Prix Mercedes-Benz and the...

Advanced Design OF recent years, sports-cars of advanced design, that is to say, of the roller-bearing, twin o.h.c., hand-assembled sort, have been equalled, if not overshadowed, in performance by more sober designs, having more simple valve gear, and of less specialised construction generally. We have often argued that this is mainly so only because the commercial demand for the specialised...

The VSCC of America has added selected cars made before 1960 as eligible for its events, plus some later ones if specially approved, as well as pre-war cars. The list includes post-war HRG, Jowett Jupiter, SU-carburettored Morgans, Peerless GT, Swallow Doretti, Veritas and some TVR, Turner and Tojeiros. My hope is that the VSCC will never copy... The Morris register is fortunate to have...

A Morris landmark

Another great motoring landmark is about to be destroyed, along with so many others. I refer to the one-time Morris Motors production complex at Cowley, just outside Oxford. You might almost have said that the motor empire built up so industriously by William Morris, Lord Nuffield to be, would have rendered this world famous factory sacred. So it was, until last year. Then the destruction began...

Veteran Edwardian Vintage

A section devoted to old-car matters The Dawn of "The Daimler" Last month's issue of Motor Sport had quite a Daimler flavour to it, what with my description of an outing up Shelsley Walsh in the British Leyland Heritage/Coventry Museum's fine big Edwardian of that make, and my article about the motor-cars of Mr. Bolton, a gentleman who had a preference for Daimlers and drove them at Shelsley...
