A Section Devoted to Old-Car Matters THE V.S.C.C. OULTON PARK RACE MEETING (June 25th) PERHAPS the best of the Vintage S.C.C. race meetings, this fixture fell on the last Saturday in flaming June, so naturally it poured with rain most of the day. This did not spoil the sport, and some very good racing took place. Practice produced some unfortunate eliminations. Seddon's Lagonda Rapier collided...

VSCC Hawthorn Trophy meeting

Top left: The ill-fated Type 59 Bugatti driven by Neil Corner, followed at close quarters by D. Barber's blown SS100, in the Pre-War All-Corners' Scratch Race. The Bugatti crashed, the SS seized-up, and the race was won by No. 17, Bill Morris' ERA. Right: That hard-trier, the Chawner-GN, in staccato action. Above, left: President Kain does it again! Bernard on his way to winning the Boulogne...

VSCC Cadwell Park Finale

VSCC Cadwell Park Finale THE FINAL VSCC race meeting of 1984 took place on August Bank Holiday Sunday at the picturesque and hospitable Cadwell Park road-circuit. It marked not only the Golden Jubilee of the VSCC but also of Cadwell Park circuit itself and of the ERA, many of which were competing. So, with an entry of over 160 and warm sunshine, this was a great occasion. The 10-race Programme...

A section devoted to old-car matters The VSCC Welsh Week-End The Vintage SCC's Welsh Week-End, dating back to 1939 and based on Presteigne, was as popular as ever this year, but with a bias towards the sporting trial and away from the driving-tests and Concours d'Elegance, in the ratio of 71 entries to 17, a healthy sign. This year both events involved a preliminary 200-mile road section, whereas...

A section devoted to old-car matters Looking back at Oulton Park (VSCC—June 2011) Owing to printing schedules it was not possible to publish a report of the VSCC Oulton Park race meeting last month but, this being one of the most enjoyable of this Club's annual fixtures, it merits a backward glance. Run without serious incident in summer sunshine, this Daily Express-sponsored meeting commenced...

The VSCC at Silverstone (April 11th)

The Vintage SCC had excellent weather and a fine entry of 150 cars for its first Silverstone race meeting (Club circuit) of the year. First, cars circulated for 40 minutes in the traditional High Speed Trial, said to be a simple exercise for novices; but it caused four retirements and four failed to qualify. Of those who put in the required number of laps, three were girls, Miss Ford (Alvis Speed...

A section devoted to old-car matters More on Rolls-Royce It is sometimes thought that in the days when the 40/50 h.p. Silver Ghost was the current Rolls-Royce model only the chassis was supplied by Derby and that customers had to order bodywork from a coachbuilder of their choice. While the latter practice was prevalent, complete cars were, in fact, listed in the Rolls-Royce catalogues of the...

A Section Devoted to Old-Car Matters VSCC Driving Tests, Silverstone (December 6th) IN THEIR traditional masochistic manner the Vintage SCC held driving tests at bleak Silverstone in December—it wasn't actually snowing but the sun wasn't exactly shining, either. But Englishmen, particularly vintagents, are mad, so an entry of 61 was obtained. The tests numbered eight, with names like Channels,...

A section devoted to old-car matters "Romulus" and Replicas Dear D.S.J., I note that you do not share my enjoyment at seeing "Romulus" racing again. I follow your reasoning, up to a point. This is a unique case of a car, until this year, always driven by Bira and which is still in the possession of the family who owned it from new. You agree it is right and proper that it should he made to run...
