All in a year's work

In which the Deputy Editor reviews his 1979 motoring activities  It doesn't feel as if a year has passed since I last wrote this annual review, and looking back through my diary for this flash of time I wonder how I have managed to fit in the long list of cars driven, the countries and events visited, the production of 12 issues of this magazine and a semblance of relatively normal life as well....

Vintage Postbag

Sunbeam Sidelines Sir, I found the article on the 3-litre Sunbeam in last month's issue most interesting and informative.

Starting with 1924, could one of the factors influencing the decision to withdraw the Le Mans entry have been the Coatalen/Bentley duel in Autocar? The...

Students of speed

The intense sporting rivalry between Cambridge and Oxford stretches beyond the Thames, Lor'ds and Twickenham. Bill Boddy remembers their car and bike battles - a veritable breeding ground for future British Motorsporting talent It is rather pleasing to thing of the sight and sound of racing cars invading usually quiet private drives in country estates, as the Dark and Light Blues compared their...

For Moffat read Felton

Sir, Hamish Moffat may well have been both a host and a competitor at the Brescia weekend as described in the September Motor Sport, but the photo was miscaptioned. That was Rodney Felton's Type 13, not Moffat's. Among the spectators in the background are Hugh Conway and Sandy Greene who came all the way from Wellesley, Mass., USA to see the fun. R.W."Bill" Leith, Jr., Dedham, Mass. USA.

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...

In the standard class there was a 1954 D-type Jaguar, OKV 3, driven by...

"The Amazing Bugattis" Exhibition

"The Amazing Bugattis" Exhibition, thought up by Hugh Conway, CBE, and put on very tastefully indeed at the Royal College of Arts in London, is now over. But its impact will be felt for a long time to come. Never before, even when they were in production, can Bugatti cars have achieved greater publicity. The Bugatti OC had its Reception and Viewing of this remarkable Exhibition on October 20th,...

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...
