Letters from readers

N.B.—Opinions expressed are those of our Correspondents aim! " Motor Sport " does not necessarily associate itself with them. -Ed. Scientific testing of new car design Sir, Mr. Bryant's letter, on page 471 of your June issue,  indicates a sorry state. Many years ago, at the tender age of about 15/16, I was driving a lorry laden with tobacco front my brother's farm to Salisbury in Rhodesia. I had...

Fair Comment

The Letters from Readers section has already gone to press, but I do not apologise for printing this letter out of section as it so perfectly expresses my personal point of view, and brings the correspondence on this subject to an end.—W. J. Tee—Managing Director. Sir, Jackie Stewart's letter in your last issue displays a certain arrogance in his handling of Denis Jenkinsons' views which after...

Rules and Bores

Sir, The usually very accurate D.S.J. says in the May issue that "Until 1934 the cars in the TT, which had to be sports cars, could run stripped of road equipment. . . ." This is only part of the story. The Ulster TT was held in the years 1928 to 1936 and only in 1932 and 1933 were stripped cars allowed to compete. Surely he remembers Metz being disqualified in 1929 for removing a front mudguard...

N. B.—Opinions expressed are those of our Correspondents and Motor Sport does not necessarily associate itself with therm — Ed."Independence, or not?" Sir, With reference to your Editorial for the May issue, I would like to take you to task as regards your plea for i.r.s. I for one, with not a little experience in the Motor Trade, would like you to think back about some of the engineering...

Sir, I am moved and impressed by the sensitivity of Letter from the West Country (Motor Sport, November 1987). I refer to the paragraphs about the forty-years Ferrari reunion. In all the articles I've read about this subject, in other motoring publications, I feel that it must be said that none really spared a thought for the Ferrari deceased as Mr Jenkinson's piece of journalism did. For me,...

Vintage Cars and the EEC

Sir, We have now witnessed the humiliating spectacle which surpasses all seen before: a Peer of the Realm, cap in hand, pleading for those of us who prefer to drive older cars and praying that we be allowed freedom to use good vehicles for the purpose for which they were bought. His Lordship was accompanied on his ill-starred peregrination by some who should, I feel, have given the exercise more...

Letters From Readers

N.B.—Opinions expressed are those of our Correspondents and Motor Sport does not necessarily associate itself with them. -- Ed. Justice? Sir, In one of your recent editorials you warned motorists of some parts of the country which dealt harshly with motorists in their law courts. I should like to draw your attention to Wiltshire. Some two months ago, when driving from Cornwall to St. Albans, I...
