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. The Byrom family did plenty of motoring, although their father knew nothing of cars, preferring horses. Jim Byrom...

Brits get an icy reception

When the British contingent found a unique way to deal with the arctic conditions of the 1947 Swedish Grand Prix, their rivals cried foul play Odd-ball motor races – unusual events that feature internationally recognised categories of significant racing cars – are always interesting. Perhaps the all-time prize winner might turn out to be the Israel Grand Prix on the so-called Barnea Beach circuit...

I.O.M: Manx Cup and Castletown Trophy races

Nixon's Riley Wins the Manx Cup Race,  K. W. Bear Walks Away with the Castletown Trophy Tuesday morning in the Island was wet, very wet, and one wondered how Gerard and company must have felt when they saw the roads being sanded for the benefit of the horse-drawn trains!  However, by the afternoon the sun was out and the course had dried before the multi-coloured cars in the Manx Cup and...

MATTERS OF MOMENT RALLY RUMINATIONS If it were not for the fact that 470 entrants presumably cannot he wrong, we should have written off the DON .Express 1,000-mile rally as an wiliceessary event. A modern car should have no difficulty in averaging 35 m.p.h. over the main and secondary roads of Britain in the hands of a compelling driver, providing he avoids the really inaccessible places and ice...

Club News

We Hear Group-Captain Tom Evans would appear to possess a most interesting motor-car, in the form of his Centric-supercharged, ex-Donaldson O.E. "30/98" Vauxhall, and, moreover, 'tis said that he has actually made the hydraulic front brakes work superbly! Those pessimists who consider that all the "discoverable" veterans have been found should note that a year ago a 1914 Bebe Peugeot in brand new...

Emphasis on sports cars

Two Jaguar X120 engined "Specials," Oscar Moore's HWM-Jaguar and EP Scragg's Alta Jaguar. One of the more interesting and potent "specials" to appear in this year's sports-car and club races has been Oscar Moore's HWM-Jaguar. Its successes are rather too numerous to detail, but it will be recalled that at the last BARC Members' Meeting at Goodwood, Moore won a scratch race at 74.61 mph, and was...

Grand Prix De Bruxelles This Formula II (not "B" as some would have it) race was a battle between the G.P.-type Ferraris with the sports V12 2-litre engines installed, the 1,430-c.c. Simcas, the 2-litre Veritas cars and O. Moore's O.B.M. Moore made the fastest practice lap in the first session, in heavy rain, but retired in the race itself. The G.P. Ferrari chassis is apparently better suited to...
