Any excuse is good enough for a party! The other day the phone rang and Julian Ghosh told me he had remembered that the next day was the 70th anniversary of the loM TT in which three of the Harry Ricardo-engined twin-cam Vauxhalls started and in which Payne's finished third in the big division, behind Jean Chassagne's straight-eight Sunbeam and Clement's three-litre Bentley. As Julian now has the...

VSCC Silverstone

Run earlier this year because of the British GP, the Vintage SCC's second Silverstone Meeting of 1982, on July 2nd, enjoyed hot sunshine and some good racing, but the attendance (perhaps depleted by the Henley Regatta and Wimbledon tennis, just as the 1926 Summer Meeting at Brooklands had been affected by these counter-attractions and the Hendon Air Display) if smaller than expected, was...

Talk Curve -- Historic motorsport insight: why vintage rules

Old cars: new business ethos. Paul Lawrence talks to the VSCC's Julian Ghosh Contemporary motor racing in Britain is in a degree of crisis. Falling grids, rising circuit-hire costs and low spectator numbers are combining to make the running of profitable race meetings an ever-harder task. Yet, in its own particular sphere, the Vintage Sports Car Club is bucking the trend. Excellent entry levels...

Veteran to classic: Lakeland trial

Happy 21st The Vintage Sports Car Club's twenty first annual invasion of William Wordsworth's demesne took place on the day before Remembrance Sunday, November 7. Of the 80 entries, one quarter comprised Austin Sevens, many of which (including Robin Harcourt-Smith's and Barry Clarke's) had been driven some 350 miles from the gale-torn south in order to avoid the VSCC's 10-point penalty for...

Ure Back

Excellent racing and some rare machines vied for Alan Cox's attention at VSCC Silverstone in June The race of the day was the Hawthorn Spanish Trophy which saw a triumphant return to the track for John Ure, who took Peter Mann's ERA AJM1 to a close-fought victory from Ludovic Lindsay's famous ERA 'Remus'. The leaders scrapped furiously for the duration of the 12-lap event with added interest in...

Vintage Madresfield

On September 6, Rosemary Adams and her team again put on driving tests on behalf of the VSCC's Midlands Section on the historic drive of the Madresfield Estate, off the Upton-on-Severn/Powick Road. It is a wonderfully relaxed event, enabling spectators to look out for 'new' cars and watch the antics of the drivers as they pit themselves against five tests. A notable new entry this year was TP...

Slick Show

(On August Bank Holiday Saturday the Bentley Drivers Club held its annual Silverstone meeting, notable for plenty of variety, slick organisation and some exciting racing. It also featured one of the biggest, if not the biggest ever, parades of Bentleys in which everything from early 3-litre to Mulsanne circulated enthusiastically, including a 30/98 Vauxhall gatecrasher (we refrain from saying...

Hill Start

Phil Llewellin returns to the place where his motor-journalism career began and rediscovers hillclimbing's unique and timeless atmosphere. Accelerating like a clothyard arrow at Agincourt, McLaren's prodigiously potent F1 reaches 100mplh in less time than it takes to recite the opening lines of The Lord's Prayer. We are talking about 6.3 seconds. All things being relative, even that rate of...

A good day's racing

It's hard to imagine a more picturesque setting then Cadwell Park, the ebb and flow of the circuit allowing all the drivers to show off their skills and machinery to an appreciative crowd. The Austin 7 of Frank Hernandez led away the opening race for the Spero and Voiturette Trophies, followed closely by Barry Foster's MG and Freddie Giles in his Morgan GN, who both demoted him on lap four to...
