VETERAN TO CLASSIC - VSCC CROIX-EN-TERNOIS

Having lost the use of Oulton Park and Cadwell Park from its regular calendar of race meetings, the VSCC has sought to fill the voids and maintain its programme of six race events by using Pembrey and, for the first time, travelling to the continent in the tracks of the HSCC and 750 Motor Club, hosting a meeting at the twisty, 1.19-mile circuit at Coix-en-Ternois, close to Arras in north-eastern...

Curtain-Raiser

British and Czech interests got together on 30 September/1 October to present a new development in historic racing — a major race meeting on the other side of the old Iron Curtain. The venue was the ultra-modern Brno autodrome in the Czech Republic, which hosted the final 1995 rounds of both the FIA Cup for Thoroughbred Grand Prix Cars and the International Super Sports Cup. Champion-elect Martin...

1999 - The essential guide to the season

From Coys to Goodwood, Le Mans to Monza, this season's historic calendar is packed with thrills. Marcus Pye previews the best action. From ignominious failure to heroic Formula One World Championship success, engineering folly to mechanical wizardry, the story of British Racing Motors is a compelling one. Back in 1949, when the shattering sound of the first supercharged V16 engine roused the...

Silverstone VSCC

Although 'new' cars were thin on the ground at the VSCC's traditional April season-opener at Silverstone, there was a healthy entry for the eleven-race programme and some close-fought finishes. And after Friday's wash-out test day it was a relief to find Saturday 13th calm and sunny all day. A capacity field of 34 starters contested the Brooks 1950's Sports Car Race, with the front row of Frank...

Hannen fodder

The traditional June Silverstone VSCC meeting was the penultimate event to be held on the old club circuit, prior to the various F1-instigated revisions, and featured an all-ERA (or ERA-engined) race to commemorate the Bourne marques 60th anniversary. The opening event, for the Bill Phillips Trophy proved some consolation for Martin Stretton. Having suffered an engine failure at the wheel of...

Coming soon - the patter of tiny Goodyears

Who can forget the six-wheeled Tyrrell P34 Grand Prix cars which Jody Scheckter, Patrick Depailler and Ronnie Peterson raced in 1976 and 1977? Well, two examples are being prepared to race again, by Simon Bull in Britain and Bud Bennett in the USA. If new 10in tyres can be made, they could be out this year. The reduced drag of four small front wheels was abandoned when tyre technology for the...

Mallory Park VSCC

In only its third visit to Mallory, the VSCC has proved that it has found an excellent home for the Williams Monaco Trophy race, formerly based at Cadwell Park, and this year's event on the 18th July produced a superb battle for the meeting's title race. In recent years the race, for two-seater Grand Prix cars, has struggled to attract a representative entry and although this year saw only ten...

Stretton wins war, eyre the battle

Martin Stretton clinched his second FIA thoroughbred Grand Prix Championship with fifth place at a wet Nürburgring on October 1, his success in the ex-Ronnie Peterson Tyrrell P34 six-wheeler of 1977 supplementing the 1995 title, which he won in a Tyrrell 005. Both cars are owned by Simon Bull, engineered by their designer Derek Gardner and prepared by Stretton's own crew in Worcestershire. "It's...

Flying sparks

The VSCC continued its racing season by hosting the 28th Hawthorn Trophy meeting at Silverstone on the 12th June, the day being favoured with weather which ranged from indifferent to treacherous. Albert Sparrowhawk held a brief lead in the Bill Phillips Trophy race in his fleet Alvis Special, before Ian Bentall's 4 1/2-litre Bentley took control on the second lap and was never headed, despite the...
