Royal Bentley

Sir, I am in the process of restoring Prince George's (later Duke of Kent) 3 litre TT Replica Bentley and though some progress has been made in terms of retaining the original registration, works records and list of previous owners, I am still encountering difficulty in obtaining the correct colour scheme, interior details and any other specifications for the car. The Bentley Drivers' Club, The...

Nostalgia for Von Trips

A museum dedcated to the great German F1 driver is like no other you will have visited... Museums — usually informative (well, hopefully), often fascinating, and sometimes eccentric. And occasionally wonderfully bizarre. The Wolfgang von Trips museum is the latter. It's run by Jorg-Thomas Fodisch, a man so passionate he makes the most avid motor racing enthusiast look like a bored teenager. His...

Brighton Backtrack

As stated last month, this year's Veteran Car Run was a great occasion. Although 79 of the pre-1905 cars were withdrawn before the start and another six were non-starters, that still left the remarkable number of 392 veterans to face the road to Brighton. It was pleasing that the Chief Constable of Sussex, who permitted an entry of 400 this year, rode on a 1904 Sunbeam. Transport Secretary Cecil...

Hello, my Lord!

Hello! magazine devoted an astonishing 19 pages and its cover to the 70th birthday party of Lord Montagu of Beaulieu, justified as this fancy-dress celebration was one of the most notable of the year's social events. It took six months to plan and involved 80 tables laid with 1500 sets of cutlery, 800 napkins and 75 tablecloths, as observant reporter Sarah Cartledge counted. The buffet took 16...

No rest for the…

With both on-track and in-factory testing, there’s no off-season for a modern F1 team, as Renault’s executive director of engineering explains This is a very busy time for us, more so this year because of the latest restrictions on testing. We are trying to run as many miles as we did last year, working on reliability with the new car, but the new rules will make that a lot harder. So we’re...

Ambassador for motorsport

Among the sleaze, sex and tragedy exposed — rightly or wrongly —by the Daily Mail, Prince Michael of Kent has been a recent recent victim. His so-called crimes are that he pays council house rent for a grace-and-favour apartment in Kensington Palace, lives in a manor house in Gloucestershire, earns fees for Royal appearances, has had Rolls-Royce, Bentley and Aston Martin cars, and rides horses....

VSCC Silverstone meeting (July 26th)

Sanity returned to Silverstone after the British Grand Prix, with the Vintage SCC Race Meeting the following week-end, when a full programme of ten races, four of them of eight laps or over, was run off, in a heat wave that was in the legendary tradition of Brooklands, on which, of course, the sun always shone. Before a well-filled Pits' grandstand, the programme opened with a 5-lap scratch race...
