VSCC Silverstone Meeting (July 18th)

The Vintage SCC held another successful race meeting at Silverstone last month, in sunshine, without accidents, but with enough exciting incidents and close racing to hold the interest of those present, but with Neil Corner not on winning form, while the ERAs were mainly non-runners. The traditional one-hour high-speed trial opened the day's sport, 17 drivers qualifying for awards, including...

Wheeler-Dealing

Motorfair, the biannual Earls Court alternative to Britain's Birmingham international Motor Show, continues to expand and attract more customers. Amongst this year's innovations were a separate working weekday set aside for motorsport people and exhibits, plus a parking space for the Bugatti Royale on its multi-million "hyperway" to the auction chambers. The attendance figures tell the story of...

V-E-V odds and ends

Records are made to be broken and some pre-war ones fell at the sprint meeting held at RAF Elvington last month. For instance, Tony Densham at last broke the British f.s. kilometre record, held by Sir Malcolm Campbell and the Napier-Campbell since 1927—but by less than a m.p.h. per year! His 7-litre Ford-powered, specially modified, dragster did 207.6 m.p.h. to Campbell's 174.88 m.p.h. with 24-...

The racing memories of J. C. Byrom

Recalled in a recent interview with the Editor Having reviewed Henry Longhurst's entertaining book last month we obtained from him the present whereabouts of J. C. Byrom and set off in the latest MG-B to chat with him about the old racing days, at his country house near Shrewsbury.

More than a Merc demonstration Demonstartions of pre-war GP cars at present-day race meetings can be a big attraction. I've mentioned Tony Brooks and Peter Collins driving a W125 and a W154 Mercedes-Benz during the VSCC Oulton Park meeting of 1958. And in 2001 Auto Union displayed their resuscitated 1937- and 1938-type C and D cars at Donington; had the late Michele Alboreto, the Ferrari driver,...

Auto Union To Race At Donington

A V12 D-Type Auto Union, a sister to the car in which Tazio Nuvolari won the 1938 Donington Grand Prix, could race at the circuit in the VSCC's Richard Seaman Trophy event on May 21. The meeting will celebrate the life of Bernd Rosemeyer, who won the 1937 race there in a C-type V16. Mercedes-Benz's tribute to Seaman, which drew a record VSCC attendance to the circuit last year, saw John Surtees...

Veteran-Edwardian-Vintage

A Section Devoted to Old-Car Matters V.S.C.C. Oulton Park Race Meeting (June 21st) This popular event was as well supported as usual, with 151 entries, and was run off in sunshine and showers on a rather cold June afternoon. Undoubtedly the afternoon was improved by the legendary Mme. Elisabeth Junek all the way from Czechoslovakia, who although she had not driven a Bugatti since about 1930, a...
