Brother's pride

Thirteen years after opening to the public, the Schlumpf brothers’ secret hoard has been regrouped. Bugattis remain centre-stage, but D McK has been inspecting the post-war racing machiner also on view. Thousands of words have been written over the past twenty years about the Musee National de l'Automobile — the infamous Schlumpf Collection — at Mulhouse in Alsace, France. The unique collection...

Mysteries Solved

Sir, In reply to Mr Timothy Ennor's letter published in July's MOTOR SPORT, concerning the identity of the 1 1/2-litre GP Delage he discovered in the Vintage Car Store, New York, in around 1970. This car was the ex-John Rowley, Mike Bradley car, which Mike exchanged in a deal with the museum, for a D-type Jaguar. This car came back to UK when purchased by Anthony Bamford. It subsequently went...

Anna Pauker

Sir, Your usually outstandingly accurate editor has for once got his wires more than somewhat crossed. The redoubtable "Anna Pauker" 3-litre Le Mans Type (but not one of the competing cars) Chenard-Walcker, is still very much with us, although she no longer belongs to me. In 1966 I gave it, with some other cars, to my eldest son, who maintains them. So where the story about the car being offered...

Vintage Postbag

A Doctor's Cars Sir, Recently my mother, aged 88, died and I had occasion to sort through numerous old papers. Amongst these I found an account of a motor tour undertaken by my father and mother in 1907. It was written in diary form and the typed copy is a word-for-word reproduction. It is not an account written particularly from the "motoring" angle, but is nevertheless interesting as a general...

Off the blocks

Back on the tracks in drum-braked sportscar races in 2004, after an absence of more than 50 years, will be a rare Gordini T23S. It last raced in 1952 when Robert Manzon crashed while leading the Reims 12 Hours. The car of Eddie McGuire is one of three T23Ss built by the French company, starting life in 1949 with a 1.5-litre engine. It was upgraded to 2.3-litre form in '52 and raced at Le Mans,...

The 250F Maserati - Part one

Last year there was a race for Maserati cars only, at a VSCC meeting at Silverstone, with a good turn-out of pre-war cars from Bologna and post-war cars from Modena, but unfortunately the VSCC itself and many reporters got into a terrible muddle over the 250F entries. This was not surprising as there are numerous fake 250F type Maseratis about the place and some of them are masquerading under...

The two Mestiviers

Sir, In reply to Mr Mitchell's letter (Motor Sport, March 1988), there were indeed. two brothers Mestivier, named Marius and Maurice. It was Marius who was head of the racing shop, and who was killed at Le Mans in 1925 when he ran off the road while investigating a noise under the scuttle. Maurice was usually to be seen around the racing cars in the 1920s, although he was not a regular driver in...

The 1923-1925 2-litre Grand Prix Delage

The recent coverage of the Jameson two-stroke racing cars, which used chassis, or parts thereof, from the 1924/25 2-litre GP Delage cars, has aroused interest, not only in these Jameson cars themselves, but also in the GP Delage cars, of which two apparently came to this country and a chassis of one of which was used by C E C Martin, for a sprint special, using four JAP Speedway engines. These...
