Brooklands Society News

A meeting was held in London on August 15th at which the Brooklands Society was formed, on the lines and with the aims and objects outlined on page 796 of the September issue of Motor Sport. By mid-November 55 Members and 124 Associates had joined, subscription-revenue totalling £72. This is a most encouraging start especially as an intense membership drive has not been instituted, the present...

Borgeson on Miller

The history of the Miller racing cars which contributed such an important part to the American racing scene has been fully covered in the book written by Mark Dee, which for some reason or other has not come the way of this reviewer. I have heard enough about Miller history, however, to believe that nothing else on the subject is called for. So it came as a surprise to find an article on various...

Williamson takes early lead

After the first three rounds of Shell Super Oil Formula Three Championship, the qualifying races of which count for the Motor Sport Trophy at the end of the year, the situation is rather confusing. One of the stipulations of the Shell Championship is that all contestants display decals advertising the championship if they are to score points and collect the prize money. However, before this rule...

Air Mail (2)

Air Mail (21 Sir. I always enjoy the interesting and informative aviation features but regret Peter Hull may be incorrect to assume that Aeronca C3 "G-AEFT" is the sole survivor (September issue. page 1224) According to my copy of Gordon Riley's "Vintage Aircraft Directory" there also exists "G-ADYS". the C3 of J. Willmott. usually based at RAE Farnborough apparently, In 1979 this was classified...

Motoring as it was

A look back to the roads of the 1920s (Continued from last month)  We left "Owen John", whose past motoring fortunes we are pondering, at the 1921 Motor Show. After this he visited the Motorcycle Show, but seems to have been impressed only by the Ner-a-Car and the Peters, apart from being able to tell the vendors that the Hellesen dry-battery lamp he bought the previous year was still working. He...

"Automobile Design: Great Designers And Their Work."

"Automobile Design: Great Designers And Their Work." Edited by Ronald Barker and Anthony Harding. 374 pp. 10 in. x 6 1/4 in. (David & Charles, South Devon House, Newton Abbot, Devon. £4 4s.) At first this weighty tome seems to cover an odd selection of designers, because engineers of the calibre of Sir Henry Royce, Laurence Pomeroy, Georges Roesch, Louis Coatalen, Ernest Henry, Ettore Bugatti...

V.S.C.C. Pomeroy Memorial Trophy Competition

This contest was instituted by the late Laurence Pomeroy in memory of his father, who designed Vauxhall and Daimler cars of the vintage era. He gave a Rex Hays' model of a 1914 G.P. Vauxhall as a prize, stipulating that various tests be held to determine the best all-round touring car. Now that Laurence Pomeroy, too, is dead, this competition constitutes a fitting memorial to both father and son...

Fifty Not Out

Bugatti Owner's Club's Prescott Fiftieth Anniversary Celebrations on May 21-22 (supported by Christie's) were a thorough success. The weather behaved, the queues to the hill were the longest ever, and a great many of those who have known Prescott from its opening in 1938 either drove up the full course in appropriate cars or were driven up — as I was in Dudley Gahagan's T37. There was a large...

VSCC December Driving Tests

As last year, the winter Driving Tests of the Vintage SCC took place at Barford St. John, with 68 entries attempting ten tests, proving that Englishmen are as mad as dogs. At the American base cars ranging from 1904 (the Colling's Darracq) to 1937 cavorted on the vast, bleak expanse of airfield, overlooked by some truly-imposing aerials that I wouldn't care to stand under during a thunderstorm....

Veteran Edwardian Vintage

A section devoted to old car matters VSCC Pomeroy Trophy INTENDED to define the best all-round touring-car of the meeting and the only one in which modern cars mingle with the prewar variety in VSCC affairs, the Pomeroy is less of a pointer than once was the case, because the road section has been abandoned, while this year a defect in the Shell/BP Racing Service petrol pump in the Paddock also...
