Fantasy Reprise

I much enjoyed your article on Brandon Wang's 250LM Ferrari. This is correctly described on Massini's Ferrari 250LM book as having "a long Drogo nose", confirmed by the recent photos in your article, but is clearly not the case with No 140 in the 1965 Targa Florio illustration.

BARC Brooklands Raceday

THE programme was styled the "Official Race Card" and was priced in shillings; the drivers were accorded the courtesy Mr. or Mrs. before their initials and the newest car was made in 1938, but it didn't happen at Brooklands. Instead, May Bank Holiday Monday saw 24 regular VSCC competitors assembling on the grid at Thruxton for the annual Brooklands Society Memorial Trophy Handicap race over six...
