Sebring 12-hour Race

Sebring, Florida, March 26th. The Constructors' World Championship for GT cars and Prototypes has been retained by Ferrari for the last six years, with no other manufacturer really in the running.

A trip to Sarthe London

Chelsea AutoLegends blooms and springs late-summer surprises Having missed last year's inaugural event I didn't know what to expect when I strolled through Sir Christopher Wren's handsome Chelsea Hospital into the grounds where the Flower Show takes place. I assumed there would be a couple of rows of cars parked on a square of grass. Instead I found something like the Goodwood Revival paddock...

Pub Fun

As well as the VSCC evening he organises at The Versons near Ledbury, Mark Garfitt introduced lunchtime pub-fun there on August 15, which attracted some 70 pre-war modes of transport. Among the fine assembly of the older cars we counted six Bentleys, a Speed Six and five three-litres, including onetime Frazer Nash exponent Peter Sutcliffe's smart three-litre.

Lunch with SIR JOHN WHITMORE In more ways than one, Sir John Whitmore is different. Since this monthly series began in Motor Sport six years ago I've been lucky enough to take some 80 motor sporting personalities to lunch, and I don't think any of them has had so short a racing career.
