An August Assembly

Although it was not the last VSCC race this year, the August meeting at Cadwell Park retained its delightful atmosphere, rare sunshine filtering through the trees of the scenic and hilly circuit where BBC cameras were stationed — but only for the motorcycle event of the Bank Holiday Monday. Unfortunately the major event, the Williams Trophy, was curtailed after an alarming accident stopped what...

"The first 7000 miles were surprisingly simple..."

As plans are made for the forthcoming London to Sydney marathon, Gordon Cruickshank looks back 30 years to the first time cars tried to drive to the other side of the world The words are John Sprintzel’s; the journey an epic motoring adventure across the world. The destination was Sydney, the starting point London, with 10,000 arduous miles in between. It happened 30 years ago, and was hailed as...

Rolls-Royce and the 8-litre Bentley

It is well known that in 1930 Rolls-Royce was alarmed at the performance and appeal of WO Bentley's fine 8-litre model, which was in direct competition with its Phantom II Rolls-Royce. This was overcome by buying the financially ailing Bentley Motors in a carefully disguised deal, and later on by refusing to let WO use his name on a Lagonda he had designed. The closure of the old Bentley Motors...

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...

WB Rumblings

Interesting that the Lagonda Car Club has a Vokes Trophy among its awards. It recalls those 'pancake' Vokes air-cleaners which could be neatly attached to carburettor intakes. Arnold Davey, editor of the Lagonda CC magazine, tells me that this trophy was presented to the Club by C Vokes' grandson Tony Vokes, as an award for the AGM driving tests. He inherited a 3-1/2-litre Lagonda, one of at...

A Section Devoted to Old-Car Matters Hill's 1930 Alvis Silver Eagle Wins 1968 V.S.C.C. Pomeroy Memorial Trophy Only the Vintage S.C.C. could run this event, one feels. It was conceived by the late Laurence Pomeroy as a means of finding the best all-round touring car, from Edwardian to current model. Pomeroy's father designed such famous fast touring cars as the Prince Henry and 30/98 Vauxhalls,...

Warhorses Arguably the most-raced car in the world, Remus has been out in almost every season since 1936. Gordon Cruickshank investigates Could this be 'the most raced car in the world'? Owner Ludovic Lindsay shrugs. "I've used that phrase myself because other people have, but does it mean race miles, or race starts, or number of seasons?" Yet on any of those grounds, ERA R5B can argue for that...

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...

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...

Alternating currents

Arguments over its nationality swing back and forth, but 50 years on, the Cobra, with its Yankee muscle and British breeding, is still too big for one passport Even now, few cars exercise such huge gravitational pull as a Cobra. This Anglo-American hybrid didn’t scream ‘zeitgeist’ when it rocketed into the public eye back in 1962. There was no great leap forward; no breaking of moulds or pushing...
