MATTERS OF MOMENT THE MONTE CARLO RALLY Another highly successful Monte Carlo Rally has come and gone, and it has done no harm at all to British prestige. Indeed, outright victory in the 11-litre class by the Jowett Jupiter team is a matter for national congratulation. The Jupiter impressed with its class win at Le Mans last year, and its Rally success proves it a very worthy WI-rounder,...

Club News

We Hear F. P. Thornpson is getting good service from a 1925 Austin "Heavy Twelve-Four" and considers that the more stolid vintage cars should receive their meed of praise. He would exchange a rather rusty model T Ford for Austin spares and knows of bits and pieces for 1913 G.W.K., Overland, Chrysler, Buick and other cars. A 2-cylinder Renault in reasonable condition is apparently for disposal...

B.A.R.C. CLOSING MEETING WILD WEATHER FOR END-OF-SEASON EVENT EV/1N had one of the very fastest track cars been among the entry at this meting, there would have been no chance of any lap records being put up. Although rain held off for most of the meeting, the weather was too windy excessive speeds to be safe or possible, and therefore the interest of the centered more on the Mountain which...

Cotton On

What's the point? The Can-Am point scoring scale is usually held up as an example of how to reward successful competitors. . . 20 for the winner, 15 for second place, 12 for third, and so on down to one point for 10th. Right now Davy Jones has plenty of time to ponder on the injustice of it all. He has won five IMSA Camel GT races this season in Bud Light Jaguars, yet he trails Nissan drivers...

Veteran to classic -- VSCC

The Entertainers Anthony Mayman had his worst day in many at a VSCC race meeting when he won only one race at Donington Park on Whit Monday, and was second in two others. At the same meeting, the first of two planned Donington visits by the VSCC this year, John Harper won twice. The day started badly when Alastair Pugh overturned his Frazer Nash during practice, and was taken to hospital with...

Fragments on Forgotten Makes No. 63: THE MATHIS ETTORE Bugatti and Emile Mathis have two things in common— they were both from Alsace. The beer personality has gone down in history as a man of massive build and furious temper, dark, well-dressed but in fact a shy man, who like W.O. Bentley, shunned speech-making. There was a pomposity about his cold, authoritative character; he would address his...

More about Parry Thomas with some appropriate asides

John Godfrey Parry Thomas, idol of the Brooklands crowds and talented Welsh racing-driver/designer, was my schooldays' hero. Which is why I wrote "A Parry Thomas Day" last May, after another Journey to North Wales to look at the 27-litre Liberty aero-engined Thomas Special "Babs" in which he was killed at Pendine in 1927. After a lapse of over half-a-century since Thomas' tragic death and one...
