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...

VSCC Cadwell

(August 29th) The Vintage SCC's decision to hold its final 1976 race meeting at the 2 1/4-mile Cadwell Park road circuit, the oldest established race course in this country, turned out very well. This is a splendid undulating circuit of decent length, reminiscent of a pre-war Continental roadcourse. It is run efficiently, is in a most presentable country setting, is fun to drive round, and the...

Easy Does It

Fine if cold weather, a large attendance and an entry of 232 cars on April 23 made the first Vintage Sports Car Club race meeting of 1988 a memorable one. Two intended attractions at Silverstone were the Bugatti Royale and “Babs”, the 27-litre aero-engined Parry Thomas car due to race for the first time since 1926 when it lapped Brooklands at 125.77 mph. However, “Babs” suffered a con-rod...

VSCC Prescott

(August 8th) Weather conditions were perfect for fast times, at the annual VSCC Prescott speed-hill climb this year, the course dry, the temperature mild, with only a slight breeze. We have become accustomed to Alan Cottam making f.t.d. in the Connaught but this time he excelled himself, setting a new VSCC record for the short course of 42.67 sec. It was a day when times tended to improve on the...

Slick Show

(On August Bank Holiday Saturday the Bentley Drivers Club held its annual Silverstone meeting, notable for plenty of variety, slick organisation and some exciting racing. It also featured one of the biggest, if not the biggest ever, parades of Bentleys in which everything from early 3-litre to Mulsanne circulated enthusiastically, including a 30/98 Vauxhall gatecrasher (we refrain from saying...

VSCC Italia Trophy Silverstone meeting

The vintage SCC racing season commenced in cold, fine weather over the Silverstone Club circuit on April 16th. With big crowds, an increased entry, and "new" cars, success was assured. Arriving in the comfort of a BMW 528 I noticed a certain blue Alvis and a certain red ERA prominently parked, and knew I was in the right place. Further assay, Bill Morris was changing a cracked head on the ERA "...

A section devoted to old-car matters The VSCC Silverstone Race Meeting (July 24th) The second Vintage SCC Silverstone Meeting of 1971 was a rather special occasion because it was the last at which Tim Carson, popular Secretary of the Club, was on duty, prior to his retirement after holding this position for 35 years. As a mark of appreciation a special effort had been made to get a good Edwardian...

The International VCC

The Federation Internationale des Vottures Anciennes Rally brought to Harrogate in Yorkshire a most impressive assembly of pre-war cars. It was the first of these International events to be held in this country since 1963 and, apart from the competitors, who numbered 313, the majority of those associated with the old-car movement seemed to be present, in one capacity or another. The...

Bentleys at Silverstone

THE TRADITIONAL last-Saturday-in-August Bentley Drivers Club meeting at Silverstone had two anniversaries to celebrate this year—the 50th year since the last Bentley win at Le Mans, when two Speed Six Bentleys came home first and second to give the British Company its fifth win in the eight year history of the race and the 70th anniversary of the founding of the Morgan Motor Company. The former...

Road test impressions of–

New cars from Britain, Germany, Holland and Japan The Austin Allegro After the troubles we experienced with the first road-test Allegro, BL were very prompt in sending us another, a 1750SS, to try. It was some time before I was able to take it over but when I did I was soon driving it along the M4, bound for Wales, feeling a ripe old square behind its Quartic four-sided steering-control, which...
