Events

Events Other happenings recently include dinner with doctor Sir Stephen Miller Bt, grandson of Sir Alastair Miller Bt, who was a well-known Brooklands driver with all manner of cars, including the aero-engined Wolseley Viper. He had started with a Matchless motorcycle in 1912. Lunch next day was at Moreton-in-the Marsh, where the "wake" for the late Tony Brooke, of 30/98 and Vauxhall-Villiers...

VSCC Derbyshire Trial

Enthusiasm for the VSCC Derbyshire Trial in May was high, with 82 entries and starters, of whom 13 trailed their cars to the start and were duly penalised under the latest ruling.  One A7 was found to be non-eligible, Lord Riverdale's Talbot 105 and Caldicott's HRG retired. The Dick Batho Award was won by JP Evans' GE A7, and Julian Ghosh took the Pat Marsh Memorial Trophy with the 1924 30/98...

Veteran - Edwardian - Vintage

A section devoted to old-car matters A 30/98 with a difference A feature of recent VSCC competition events has been the surprisingly large number of 30/98 Vauxhalls taking part, which is a pleasing thing, for these cars are what vintage motoring is all about. Among these 30/98s has been the car modified before the war by the late Alan May, Sydney Allard's close friend, which Julian Ghosh has...

Gordon Cruickshank

Well met at Race RetroJust about everyone in the old car business heads to Kenilworth in February for Britain's biggest historic motor sport show A very social do, Race Retro, the UK's historic motor sport jamboree. If you didn't see someone in Paris at Retromobile, you'll bump into them at Stoneleigh. That's why I didn't see half of this year's show — I was stalled by the Motor Sport stand in a...

Letters from readers

Full-face the facts Sir, I write to refute the remark made in the February 2001 issue, page 62, stating that the Vintage Sports-Car Club has banned open-face helmets. This is not true. While the VSCC is very determined in its approach to encourage young people to participate in motorsport, this does not extend to any autocratic belief that we are an authority on safety standards. There are many...

The VSCC at Prescott

FTD by Guy Smith (Frazer Nash Special) Whereas at Shelsley Walsh the paddock is comparatively small and seems subservient to the famous hill, at Prescott it is rather the reverse, with the orchard paddock a fine picnic area. Never has this been more apparent than at the Vintage SCC hillclimb in the sunshine of August 7th, and judging by the traffic the attendance must have been a record. The...

VSCC Diamond Jubilee

Shelsey Walsh The VSCC's Diamond Jubilee was celebrated in great style and dignity during the week of July 2-8. It was a fantastic vintage occasion, attracting an entry of 642 cars from both home and abroad. Events opened at Shelsley Walsh, itself a most historic speed site, in conjunction with the long-established Midland AC. This time there was more vintage machinery on the Sunday than has been...
