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-...

A Major Success

My year's motoring

The Editor looks back on the cars he drove in 1960 Last year was a particularly busy one, for I drove a pen for more than 200,000 words and forty road-test cars a matter of 18,300 miles; in addition to which I covered a further 17,000 miles in staff and personal vehicles.

Matters of Moment

On With The Show This is certainly the theme song of the SMM & T, organisers of the London Motor Show which is scheduled to take place this year at Earls Court between October 17th and 27th. It shows no sign of changing this to "The Show Is Over", in spite of advice to hold it bi-annually, outside London, or not at all, the last-named in view of the impossibility of shopping properly for a...
