SCRAP-BOOK FROM time to time readers' scrapbooks are loaned to the Editor and have the effect of making him wish that lie had been more industrious in his youth and had commenced one. The latest to come to hand is one compiled in his schooldays by I. M. Clark, who, incidentally, was at school with Whitehead, Gerald Sumner and Watson, the Talbot driver. The cover bears a coloured picture of...

V-E-V miscellany

A 1936 Austin 7 Ruby saloon, owned by the same lady all its life, recently went to the garage which has always serviced it for her. In mid-Wales rumour suggests that a 1922 BSA motorcycle, ridden only once and then put into a barn after frightening its first owner, got into the hands of some boys after his death and was destroyed; better news from this area is that a 1926 AJS is being restored....

Veteran Edwardian Vintage

A section devoted to old-car matters The Dawn of "The Daimler" Last month's issue of Motor Sport had quite a Daimler flavour to it, what with my description of an outing up Shelsley Walsh in the British Leyland Heritage/Coventry Museum's fine big Edwardian of that make, and my article about the motor-cars of Mr. Bolton, a gentleman who had a preference for Daimlers and drove them at Shelsley...

Ferrari Win but Lola-Ford Fast Adenau, May 31st. The annual 1,000-kilometre race held on the Nurburgring this year celebrated its 10th anniversary, and did so with the largest entry imaginable, ranging from works Prototype Ferraris down to a 700-c.c.

When AC Cars Alarmed Bentley Motors

Back in 1922, one of the most meritorious achievements at Brooklands Motor Course was the "Double-Twelve-Hour" record established by Capt John Duff in his own 3-litre Bentley four-seater, at an average speed of 86.79 mph. This fine performance by the driver who had previously raced the old 10-litre Fiat and who had nearly met his end when the 200 hp Benz had taken him over the top of the banking...

THE IRISH INTERNATIONAL GRAND PRIX BRITISH VICTOR)/ AT RECORD SPEED THE 2nd International Grand Prix to be run in Phoenix Park for cars up to 1500 c.c. on July 18th entirely vindicated the British small sports car.

The bear facts

Gruff and insular, Denny Hulme was always a reluctant star who gave away little about himself. Adam Cooper talks to the two women who knew him best in search of a clearer picture Between this year's Australian and Malaysian grands prix, Mrs C and I used up a free week with our first visit to New Zealand. On our travels around the wonderful countryside we came across the town of Te Puke. It was a...

The Globe

The Globe some years ago I was walking round a field, near Kew Bridge, if memory serves, where a fair was in full swing. I was admiring the FWD trucks and maybe a steam showman's engine or two, when I discovered an old axle lying in the grass. The name on a hub cap revealed that it had belonged to a Globe cyclecar. Returning home, I did some research and found that the Globe must have been a...

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...
