The racing at Rouen

ROUEN, FRANCE, July 10th AT the Reims meeting the Formula Two and Formula Three races had been the supporting events, but at Rouen they were the main attractions and as support the V.S.C.C., in conjunction with their French equivalent, organised an Historic Car Race, which to many eyes was the major attraction! The Formula Two race was the third round in the French series, further events being...

Veteran — Edwardian — Vintage

A Section Devoted to Old-Car Matters THE V.S.C.C. OULTON PARK RACE MEETING (June 25th) PERHAPS the best of the Vintage S.C.C. race meetings, this fixture fell on the last Saturday in flaming June, so naturally it poured with rain most of the day. This did not spoil the sport, and some very good racing took place. Practice produced some unfortunate eliminations. Seddon's Lagonda Rapier collided...

Bill Boddy

More than a Merc demonstration Demonstartions of pre-war GP cars at present-day race meetings can be a big attraction. I've mentioned Tony Brooks and Peter Collins driving a W125 and a W154 Mercedes-Benz during the VSCC Oulton Park meeting of 1958. And in 2001 Auto Union displayed their resuscitated 1937- and 1938-type C and D cars at Donington; had the late Michele Alboreto, the Ferrari driver,...

The E.R.A Club Dinner

The newly-formed E.R.A. Club had a very nostalgic assembly of pre- and post-war E.R.A. drivers at its first dinner, at the Public Schools Club in Piccadilly on March 2nd. Organised by the Hon. Sec., Barry Eastick, himself an ex-E.R.A. owner, A. F. Rivers-Fletcher took the chair and Raymond Mays and Humphrey Cook were guests of honour. Mays delivered a moving speech, recalling how he had initiated...

V.S.C.C Prescott

THERE is no more pleasant venue than Prescott hill on a fine day, and the V.S.C.C. had ideal conditions for its meeting of August 15th.

Continental Notes

Ferrari Dino 308 GT4 Anyone who has driven, or even ridden in, a Dino Ferrari 246 G will know that it is a truly outstanding motorcar especially as regards cornering and handling, while the 2.4-litre V6 engine runs like a dynamo and propels the little coupe along pretty rapidly. In addition to the way it goes the Dino is a real eye-catcher for looks, being very sleek and ciirvatious. Now, with...

V.S.C.C. Prescott Hill-Climb (August 16th)

V.S.C.C. Prescott Hill-Climb (August 16th) Hot weather prevailed but times were slow. Arnold-Forster, having cancelled his entry because he thought his Delage engine had seized, found all was well, so opened the course, in a time of 52.32 sec. Fastest time of the day was made by Wilks (Cooper-Bristol) in 46.22 sec., reward for perseverance, because he had the head off and missed the morning runs...

Historic Preparation

Unlike today's Formula One teams, who have to begin preparation for the next season as soon as the present one is finished, those people involved in historic car racing have a clear period of some months in the winter to prepare for the next season. We paid a visit to some of the places where historic cars are being rebuilt or overhauled in readiness for "old car racing" in 1980, whether it be...

The Annual Boxing Day Brands Hatch Race Meeting, organised by the B.R. & S.C.C., offered a programme of six races, including a 20-lap event for single-seater racing cars competing for the Silver City Trophy.
