VSCC Driving Tests

Having held driving-tests at Enstone in December, the Vintage Sports Car Club decided it would like some more in January. It held them at Barton Stacey Camp near Andover.

Setting off to watch, we...

Roads of the 1920s

Continuing follow the motoring life of O.J., whom we left sampling the delights of the 18/55 hp Talbot in the New Forest, in 1925, and in view of Motor Sport's interest in cars in books, it is interesting that next we find him criticising a new novel about a honeymoon couple who went from London to Land's End and halfway back again in a car at which fun was poked because of the troubles this...

Veteran to classic: Squire sports cars

Simplicity It may have been the Wall Street Crash of 1929 and the subsequent financial slump in the 1930s which caused a deterioration in sports-car design and construction — in fast car philosophy if you like—and which led to the formation of the Vintage Sports Car Club, a body which believed contemporary sportscars did not match up to older ones.

A section devoted to old-car matters The V.S.C.C. Driving Tests, Silverstone, December 10th: The Vintage S.C.C. is on the whole traditional and in December it has its driving tests at Silverstone; it would seem unusual if it were otherwise.

A section devoted to old-car matters Measham madness WE HEAR a lot these days about Motorway madness. Measham madness is different, inasmuch as it is an innocuous form of insanity, indulged in by the more competitive members of the VSCC, who annually take part in this all-night rally in the wilds of Shropshire and Wales.
