Club news

We hear…. Robert Waddy was in fine form last month and full of ideas for another special and for hydro-pneumatic suspension after the war. Dick Caesar still has a 3-litre Invicta tourer for sale. His special 6 1/2-litre Bentley and Edwardian Belsize are stored for the duration and he motors in two "12/60" Alvis cars, a 4-seater and a saloon.

The second Motor-Racing Brains Trust

The second Motor-Racing Brains Trust went off successfully at the Rembrandt Rooms on March 28th, and every credit is due to Messrs. Capon, Rivers-Fletcher and Peter Clark for organising it.

Joan Richmond

Joan Richmond We are sad to hear that Joan Richmond, the brave girl who arrived here before the war to compete in a Monte Carlo Rally and who then stayed to drive Triumph and other cars, including Robert Waddy's fierce 'Fuzzi' in rallies and races, has died in her native Australia.

Sprint Specials

MOTOR SPORT readers are by and large a pretty knowledgeable bunch, so I wonder if any of them could help me with information about a couple of amateur-built sprint specials, namely Robert Waddy's "Fuzzi" and the "de Havilland/ATN Special"?

Brooklands reopens—for one nostalgic afternoon

The "Hand and Spear," June 26th. THE idea of a re-union between those who remember the old Motor Course at Weybridge came to Bill Boddy and Dudley Gahagan three years ago after attending a B.M.C.R.C. Brooklands Re-union organised by Rex Judd at the "Hand & Spear," where so many Brooklands rider's and drivers used to quench their monumental thirsts. It took place this year on June 26th and was...

Four-Wheel-Drive in Grand Prix

It takes a long time to progress Attempts to put 4-wheel-drive into Grand Prix racing are by no means new, and date back to the Edwardian days, but successful attempts are another matter.

The enthusiasts' meeting at the London Zoo

Unkind people may say that the Great British Public were especially well catered for at the London Zoological Gardens on June 27th, in that they had not only the animals to study, but motoring enthusiasts as well. From the viewpoint of the parked cars belonging to these enthusiasts, however, it might be said that so many were of the absolutely element-proof, mass-production box variety that it...
