A section devoted to old-car matters The RAC London-Brighton Veteran Car Run (November 7th) I have tried the Brighton Run most ways—by tram and bus to Croydon to watch the veterans climb up past the Airport before the war, riding on veterans since 1936, driving some of Lord Montagu's in more recent runs. This year I did it in comfort—staying in Brighton on the Saturday night and reporting from...

Stadium rock

Pete Tucker was one of the very first stars as stock car racing took a hold in fifties Britain. He recalls the lifestyle with Richard Barnett In 1954 Juan Manuel Fangio was thrilling grand prix-goers on his way to another world championship, but in race stadiums around the United Kingdom another form of motorsport was being established.

Singer Team Wins 750 Club National Six-Hour Relay Race

The Six-hour Relay Race of the 750 Club, at Silverstone an August 30th. was this year deservedly of national status. It attracted 27 teams, which engaged in a carefree race in which each team had to circulate as many times as possible. Thus team chiefs had as busy a time as drivers and mechanics and, as any car could be put on at any time, much hard work on recalcitrant engines went on all the...

MY 1948 SEASON by JOHN BOLSTER THE Vintage Sports Car Club are an enterprising body of men, and it was just like them to have the courage to run a speed trial during the " no-petrol " period. It was just like them, too, to make the competitors circle a pylon at the end and go back the way they had come, thus making double use of the course (I hope Leslie Wilson doesn't do that at Shelsley)....

Veteran Edwardian Vintage

The R.A.C Veteran Car Run – the editor goes to Brighton in a 1903 twin-cylinder Panhard-Levassor The Brighton Run, this year's the 68th Anniversary of the original Emancipation Day Run, was an event not to be missed.

B.A.R.C. 47th Members' Meeting (July 1st)

"Phew! Pretty hot isn't it? The speaker shaded his eyes carefully with his hand and watched Meeson's A.C. flash over the line at nearly 100 m.p.h. His companion turned away despondently. "Too hot for me," he replied, and tore a little coloured ticket into shreds, casting them to the faint breeze which blew lazily across the grand-stand.

Prestige Through Racing A leading article elsewhere in this issue discusses the relationship between the publicity which successful participation in motor-racing fosters and the type of car which sells most readily as a result. Not all manufacturers race directly to increase sales — the research and a third value of racing is well known, and a third reason for racing is the prestige, both...
