V-E-V Miscellany

For the sake of history, in my review of Rene Dreyfus' excellent book "My Two Lives", in the April issue, I wrongly referred to him racing for Harry Schell when what I intended was Laurie Schell, and Le Bergue should, of course, have been Le Begue; both were correct in the book. Incidentally, D.S.J. reminds me that Harry was Laurie Schell's elder son and his younger son, Philippe, still lives in...

VSCC Pomeroy Trophy

(Feb. 28th) The Vintage Sports-Car Club's Pomeroy Trophy contest, which by means of a series of timed tests at Silverstone purports to find the ideal touring car of any age by means of a handicap formula, was held this year on February 28th and the 65 entries ranged from a 1918 Brooklands Straker-Squire to a 1975 264GL Volvo. In the standard class there was a 1954 D-type Jaguar, OKV 3, driven by...

Silverstone VSCC

Although 'new' cars were thin on the ground at the VSCC's traditional April season-opener at Silverstone, there was a healthy entry for the eleven-race programme and some close-fought finishes. And after Friday's wash-out test day it was a relief to find Saturday 13th calm and sunny all day. A capacity field of 34 starters contested the Brooks 1950's Sports Car Race, with the front row of Frank...

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...

GM Dealer Sport

Maintaining a strong identity for two once distinct marques which have come together commercially is not an easy task, as witness Peugeot/Talbot. But the amalgamation of Vauxhall and Opel has been so complete that it is the parent company of GM which visually dominates the group's image, while British customers are apparently perfectly content with a car which differs only in name from its German...

Boxing Day Brands Hatch

The Annual Boxing Day Brands Hatch Race Meeting, organised by the B.R. & S.C.C., offered a programme of six races, including a 20-lap event for single-seater racing cars competing for the Silver City Trophy. The first race of the day was one of the two finals for the John Davy Trophy and catered for the larger G.T. machines. Throughout most of the race the battle for supremacy was between Ken...

VSCC Pomeroy Trophy Competition

Silverstone—February 26th The auguries were good for this year's Pomeroy Trophy contest when February 26th turned out to be a bright sunny day, and in one of the streets of the built-up area which we formerly knew as the paddock at Silverstone we spotted the RAC Steward driving a car bearing the appropriate number POM 1. At scrutineering the lack of a laminated screen excluded David Ryder-...

Veteran to classic -- VSCC

The Entertainers Anthony Mayman had his worst day in many at a VSCC race meeting when he won only one race at Donington Park on Whit Monday, and was second in two others. At the same meeting, the first of two planned Donington visits by the VSCC this year, John Harper won twice. The day started badly when Alastair Pugh overturned his Frazer Nash during practice, and was taken to hospital with...

VSCC Pomeroy Memorial Trophy Competition

Silverstone, 4th March The Pomeroy Trophy competition at Silverstone once more gave VSCC members their annual opportunity to match their post-war tin, aluminium or fibreglass ware against traditional vintage and thoroughbred cars, using a formula devised by the late Laurence Pomeroy Jnr. taking into account such factors as age, capacity and the distance between the clutch pedal and rear axle. The...
