Cheshire

At Oulton Park 40 years ago, this Jaguar E-type won on the models race debut. Graham Hill drove it then. Now it's David Malsher's turn While gazing at one of the most famous Jaguar E-types of them all,ECD 400, I initially tried to push its heritage to the back of my mind, and just absorb its impact as 'an E-type'.

Ball races to success

Memorable wins for Chris Ball (Brabham BT28) and Neil Fowler (Lola T200) were among the highlights of another first-class Historic Sports Car Club meeting. Ball's Classic Racing Car victory was won the hard way as Michael Scott got his March 702 running better than ever. Edwin Jowsey put his father's BT28 firmly in contention as well until its engine cried enough mid-race. Jowsey's departure didn...

Robin shoulders

HSCC Mallory Park The Formula Junior pack turned in one of the best races during the Historic Sports Car Club's annual Mallory Park meeting.

The Delahaye 135M "Competition"

In 1935 the Delahaye and Delage firms amalgamated and from being rather dull touring cars Delahaye took on a new lease of life with a very sporting flair. In 1936 there appeared a competition version of the production 135M, built specifically for sports car racing, and the French organisers supported this move by changing all their Grand Prix races into sports car races. This also suited Talbot-...

Hotchkiss association

Arising from my recent article about the performances of vintage and PVT cars, I have been reminded that there is a British Hotchkiss Society, which caters for all cars of this make, including the outstanding Paris-Nice models, of which The Autocar timed a 1935 saloon at well over 90mph. The Society has members from Europe, New England, Canada and Australia. Michael Scott, who informed me of this...

Letters from readers

"Hot-Rods" Sir, Since returning to England I have been surprised to find that few people here believe that "hot-rods" actually do the speeds claimed. Contrary to popular belief, these cars would clock still higher speeds under European road-test conditions. The dry lakes in California are at about 3,000 ft altitude and 120 deg F, shade-temperature, and both cut power output. The surface is rough...

Le Mans cars hit London

More than 5000 visitors to the Royal Hospital Chelsea made the inaugural Chelsea Auto Legends a great success, as 50 cars from the 90-year history of the Le Mans 24 Hours went on show.
