Veteran Edwardian Vintage

A section devoted to old-car matters VSCC Hawthorn Trophy Meeting (July 30) By the time this issue is published the Cadwell Park VSCC meeting will be over, so this is a review, not a report. The second VSCC Silverstone races had 180 entries, sunshine, and an excellent attendance. The main 15-lap Hawthorn Trophy scratch contest between the historic racing cars was a tour de force for Simon...

The Cars of Sir Ralph Millais, Bt.

Described to the Editor in a recent interview Sir Ralph Millais, Bt., whose V12 4-litre Sunbeam "Tiger" and Type 59 3.3-litre G.P. Bugatti are a warmly appreciated feature of present-day V.S.C.C. race meetings, inherits his love of good motor cars from his father, who, before the 1914/18 war used to indulge in long runs in a 25 h.p. Clement Talbot tourer, driving himself and frequently camping...

VETERAN EDWARDIAN VINTAGE A SECTION DEVOTED TO OLD CAR MATTERS A Possible Yardstick THOSE in the fortunate position of being able to afford to buy a good vintage, post-vintage thoroughbred or classic car have a difficult choice to make, as study of the many very covetable examples advertised each month in MOTOR SPORT underlines. For those in this difficult position there is a possible yardstick...

Veteran Edwardian Vintage

A section devoted to old-car matters The Dawn of "The Daimler" Last month's issue of Motor Sport had quite a Daimler flavour to it, what with my description of an outing up Shelsley Walsh in the British Leyland Heritage/Coventry Museum's fine big Edwardian of that make, and my article about the motor-cars of Mr. Bolton, a gentleman who had a preference for Daimlers and drove them at Shelsley...

Prescott's 35th Anniversary

The 35th Anniversary of Prescott, the hillclimb near Cheltenham which the Bugatti OC bought for its own use in 1938, was celebrated by the BOC/FOC on a gloriously sunny Saturday in June.

Letter from France

From D.S.J. to the Deputy Editor Dear M.L., Can you imagine it being too hot, 1986 summer came while the Formula One "circus" was in Detroit and it was long overdue. The race in Montreal was reasonable enough and with five days to cover 600 miles I took the opportunity to make a deviation south into Indiana.

VSCC Prescott

(August 6th) Unfortunately a day of continual heavy rain-showers after the first runs in the smaller sports-car classes made a nonsense of subsequent times up the Bugatti OC's hill. Under these conditions of sodden umbrellas and coats, and muddy cars, it was notable how well many of the vintage cars performed. In the Saturday practice Ian Preston's Bugatti was eliminated with a damaged cylinder...

Race Reporting

A RIDDLE UNSOLVED.—Views differ as to what finally caused the retirement of Georges Boillot and his blue Peugeot, only French car to challenge the all-conquering white Mercedes team in the dramatic French Grand Prix at Lyons on the eve of war in 1914. Indecision about which type of tyres to fit may have delayed the great French driver, seen here changing the Peugeot's back wheels in the pits....
