Veteran Edwardian Vintage

A section devoted to old-car matters VSCC Hawthorn Trophy Meeting (July 30) By the time this issue is published the Cadwell Park VSCC meeting will be over, so this is a review, not a report. The second VSCC Silverstone races had 180 entries, sunshine, and an excellent attendance. The main 15-lap Hawthorn Trophy scratch contest between the historic racing cars was a tour de force for Simon...

Vintage Veerings

I can never resist talking to people who remember the old motoring days. So the other day the Alfa 6, its carburation out of sorts, was nevertheless headed along the beautiful Wye valley road, a fisherman's delight, from Builth Wells to Llswen, past the lake at Llangorse, and over the pack-horse bridge at Llangynidr, which the big car fitted snugly, to pick up the navigator for the day. Then,...

Rumblings

The VSCC opened its 2006 season with driving tests at Brooklands. David Marsh in his 1925 Brescia Bugatti was the best performer, but six other drivers took First Class awards, five gained Second Class, and seven Thirds. A notable performer was Charles Mill, whose 1913 Humber, the only car in its class, beat nine other cars. Old Brooklands was not too hard on those taking the tests, some on the...

V.S.C.C. Pomeroy Memorial Trophy Competition

This contest was instituted by the late Laurence Pomeroy in memory of his father, who designed Vauxhall and Daimler cars of the vintage era. He gave a Rex Hays' model of a 1914 G.P. Vauxhall as a prize, stipulating that various tests be held to determine the best all-round touring car. Now that Laurence Pomeroy, too, is dead, this competition constitutes a fitting memorial to both father and son...

Book reviews

"Rolls-Royce — The History of the Car" by Martin Bennett. 184 pp. 111/2 in x 83/4 in (Haynes Publishing Group, Sparkford, Yeovil, Somerset, BA22 7JJ. £8.95) The past month has seen the release of books on one-make subjects which at first sight seem unnecessary because they repeat formerly available information, representing subjects very fully covered in the past. However, one has to remember...

V-E-V odds and ends

We remarked some time ago that the variety of unusual and sometimes exciting cars to he seen travelling from Lyndhurst towards Beaulieu must rival those that, in a past age, used the roads leading to Brooklands Track. Sure enough, driving down to the MMM in the latest Triumph GT6 for the unveiling by Lord Montagu of the Foundation Stone of his new £1 million Museum Complex, there on that winter...

MEMORIES

MEMORIES To those whose memories of motoring go back to the days immediately following the War, it should not be difficult to recall the peculiar glamour which attached to that period. This may have been due in part to the general reaction from war-time conditions, to the unleashing of enthusiasms pent up during the long spell of motoring stagnation. Be that as it may, the first models to appear...

VETERAN EDWARDIAN VINTAGE A SECTION DEVOTED TO OLD CAR MATTERS A Possible Yardstick THOSE in the fortunate position of being able to afford to buy a good vintage, post-vintage thoroughbred or classic car have a difficult choice to make, as study of the many very covetable examples advertised each month in MOTOR SPORT underlines. For those in this difficult position there is a possible yardstick...

Vintage & Veteran variety

The editor takes in the Humber Register Thame Rally, the Veteran Car Club Replica of the 1908 Manchester MC Trial and the Ford Model-T Rally from London to Daventry There is absolutely no lack of enthusiasm for the older cars, consequently the fixture list is overcrowded. For instance, on a pouring wet Sunday morning in May, as I set off to drive the few miles to Christopher Mathews' house, being...

Vintage Day at Oulton Park Last year the Vintage Sports Car CIub took another step forward  in its commendable career by holding a race meeting at Oulton Park road circuit, thereby forging a post-war link with those excellent race meetings it held pre-war at that other true road circuit at Donington Park. Alas, on that occasion I had to be elsewhere, but from time to time I cast my thoughts...
