West Essex C.C. Speed Trials On March 26th the W.E.C.C. held speed trials at Boreham airfield, timing cars in pairs over a standing kilometre—an ambitious event for a new club. They hope later to hold races there, so that Boreham, near Chelmsford, can be added to the British venues listed Editorially last month. Again indicative of the present-day interest in motor sport, 96 entries came in for...

Raymond Mays Makes Fastest Time At Shelsley Walsh

Outstanding Runs by Poore, Wharton and Betty Haig AT the Shelsley Walsh Meeting on June 10th the sun shone so strongly that the tar on the road melted and fast times were impossible. What with sun-tops, bare midriffs, shorts, and weird head-coverings, quite a "Freiberg" atmosphere prevailed. Curiously, in spite of plentiful petrol, the crowd was about the smallest we have seen at Shelsley---call...

At the 1954 Motor Show was a stand on which was displayed two fibreglass-bodied Kieft Climax 1100 cc sports cars, one in racing trim, one in road trim, and an ambitious flat-four air-cooled engine. The history of the engine was covered in November's issue of Motor Sport, for it was the Kieft-modified AJB with Norton cylinder heads.
