A Section Devoted to Old-Car Matters VSCC Presteigne Rally (October 4th/5th) This popular annual assault on Wales by the Vintage SCC, based on the Radnor Arms at Presteigne, was oversubscribed, attracting 65 cars for the Sunday Trial, which is preceded by a 200-mile road section, and 28 for the more gentle beauty show and driving frolics on the Saturday; this in spite of p.v.t. entries not being...

VSCC Lightweights

Over the weekend ol April 11-12, the Light Car and Edwardian Section of the Vintage Sports Car Club held its annual dinner, which punctuated the annual driving tests in the grounds of the Abernant Lake Hotel at Llanwrtyd Wells and the trial on the Sunday. The format of the latter was somewhat changed this time to bring in new sections discovered by Clerk of the Course Seymour Price, and the fine...

A section devoted to old-car matters The V.S.C.C. Presteigne Rally (October 5/6th) The annual Vintage S.C.C. Presteigne Rally has a tradition dating back to pre-war days and this year the pilgrimage into wild wet Welsh Wales again took place and the old cars were once again given the freedom of Presteigne. A very big entry had been received, numbering 59 for the Sunday trial alone, which, in...

Light Cars in Wales

On March 30/31 the VSCC Light Car Section held its Welsh Week-end in kind weather conditions that made the Sunday trial, with observed-sections organised by Seymour Price, reasonably easy. But first came a Scenic Run, and the dinner, with balloonist Robin Batchelor the guest-speaker. Convoys of A7s, Gwynne 8s, Trojans, GNs and Edwardians paced the Welsh lanes, with Marcus Croome's 1904 Wolseley...

Three Stages in the Life of an Edwardian Racing Car

Perhaps the most enjoyable of all vintage car events is the annual V.S.C.C. Welsh Rally, which this year occupied the week-end of October 4th-5th, and attracted the excellent entry of seven Edwardians and 57 vintage cars. On the Saturday, between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m., competitors converge on the Welsh border town of Presteigne, sending telegrams to prove that they have covered the maximum required...

The VSCC Jubilee

The Vintage SCC's Jubilee celebrations (see Editorial) were happily informal yet they must have done immense good for the whole ancient-cars movement, a tremendous event. With a total entry of some 600 descending on Malvern, so that every hotel forecourt took on a pre-war flavour, you can say that again — the scenic run alone attracted about as many cars as the Club's total 1945 membership! Bravo...

Welsh weekend is wet, wet, wet

Rain pelted down for most of April 1/2, when the Light Car & Edwardian Section of the VSCC was holding its annual Welsh weekend. Most commendably the Section is concerned to encourage reasonably original cars of modest engine capacity, welcoming unusual makes and models, rather than specials and recently constructed vehicles. Its ideals were well displayed in the Welsh scenic run and Sunday...

In last month's coverage of the VSCC Jubilee it may not have been clear that the ear Miss Pat Stocken was driving was a Trojan. I described it as a "Chummy" model, because it has a rather shorter body than the other four-seater Trojans competing, although I believe Trojan themselves called this their "Utility" model. Incidentally, the term "Chummy" applied to a car with a two-door, close-coupled...

Brooklands , Glace

Mr Boddy's comprehensive history of the Brooklands phenomenon contains a minimum of reference to winter sports at the site, but such activity would have been feasible on January 27, after a couple of inches of snow had fallen in the early morning. Although some of the traffic on the M25 had apparently been trying to drive through the central barrier, the turnout at the track seemed to be the...

A section devoted to old-car matters V.S.C.C. Silverstone meeting (July 26th) IN spite of some heavy rain which diminished the number of spectators excellent racing was seen at the second Vintage S.C.C. Race Meeting of this season, at Silverstone. The first race, one of many five-lap Handicaps, was led for four laps by Routledge's Morris-Oxford but on the run-in to the finish Binns' well-known...
