The VSCC at Cadwell Park

For the sixth year running the Vintage Sports Car Club combined with Charles Wilkinson, proprietor of Lincolnshire's Cadwell Park, to promote a race meeting with a very distinctive pre-war flavour on the Sunday of the late August Bank Holiday weekend. Not only were all the cars taking part of pre-war ancestry, but the circuit itself is so reminiscent of pre-war road racing — the 2.25 mile track...

V.S.C.C. Seaman Trophies meeting at Oulton Park – June 17th

The heat brought marshals in shorts, girls in sun-tops and mini-skirts, babies in prams, and one little doggy to this always enjoyable day's sport at the picturesque setting of the Cheshire circuit. This feast of vintagery was marred, however, by the fatal accident in practice to M. Johnson (whose real name was Mike Chipperfield). His ex-Gardner Connaught hit a tree at Old Hall corner and was...

Number Plates - OKV 3

The D-Type Jaguar needs no introduction for it personifies the nineteen-fifties sports-racing car, even if its competition successes were limited to smooth circuits of the Autodrome type. If anyone needs an interpretation of the words "purpose built" then the D-Type is the best example for it was designed and built with one purpose in mind, and that was to win the Le Mans 24 Hour race, which it...

Letters from Readers

Mountain excitement Sir, You may be interested to know that the daunting Grossglockner mountain climb can still be accessed and enjoyed today; situated in Austria, near the Italian border, the course is a toll road within a national park. The original event was held in 1935 and 1938-39. The climb was held in two parts — Ferleiten to Fuscher Tod and Schobereck to Kaiser-Franz-Josef-Hohe — giving a...

Veteran Edwardian Vintage

A Section Devoted to Old-Car Matters The V.S.C.C. at Prescott (August 13th) I drove proudly away from Prescott in the Editorial Rover 2000TC, knowing that it incorporates many of the things found in the successful racing car of the historic era—for Frank Lockhart, a very capable driver of the older cars, had made f.t.d. in the ex-works 2.6-litre Rover Special, which weighs 14 cwt., has triple S.U...

Colerne Sprint

It was a few years ago that correspondence started to appear in the VSCC Bulletin, proposing a straight line sprint for Edwardian cars, along the lines of the Brighton Speed Trials. This idea gained momentum until July 19th when the airfield at Colerne (an RAF base) to the North of Bath saw 10 Edwardian cars assemble with some 80 other VSCC eligible cars in the early morning mist to take part in...

Lindsay's HWM/ALTA

Sir, I thought there was something familiar in the Alan Smith study of a so-called Le Mans Replica Frazer-Nash at Goodwood in 1954( January 2000). Actually, it is of my late father, Patrick Lindsay, driving his first racing car — an ex-Formula 2 HWM/Alta. He later rearranged the Duke's flower beds on the outside of Woodcote, damaging the car rather seriously, sold it for the price of its trailer...

Mr Brooklands

Sir, I really did rate your article on Alastair Miller (Motor Sport, January 1989) as great, because he was my first Brooklands contact, and was extremely kind and friendly. I'm sure no one can name a more worthy contender for the title "Mr Brooklands", in view of the period he spanned and the variety of machines he owned and drove. My very first lap of the Outer Circuit was in the big Benz, and...

Vintage Postbag

Survival of an Alfa Romeo Bimotore Sir, I noticed with some interest the "Tailpiece" depicting Austin Dobson and the Bimotore Alfa Romeo, and the letter from G. P. Harvey Noble. It may be of interest to your readers that this fascinating car is still in existence, and was in fact acquired by me some eighteen months ago. After its successful ownership by A. R. P. Bolt it came to New Zealand about...
