Pure class

Now in its fifth year, the Silverstone International Historic Festival continues to go from strength to strength. The 1994 version, supported for the second year by Coys, admirably upheld the tradition by attracting the best fields to be seen at any historic event this year. When the British summer broke with a vengeance for part of Sunday, it did little to dilute the sizeable crowd's enjoyment....

Trophée des Ardennes

The feature event of the 9th Trophée des Ardennes Historic meeting over the classic Spa-Francorchamps circuit in May was the annual HGPCA 100-mile race for pre-1959 Grand Prix and F2 cars. For the first time the event was scheduled to be a one-part race with one compulsory pit-stop and the option of a driver-change. Sadly, it did not run the full distance following delays as a result of an...

Alfa Moment

The VSCC's Ron Flockhart Memorial Trophy meeting at Donington Park celebrated the popular Scottish double Le Mans winner, who lost his life in 1962 during an attempt on the Sydney-London air record for prop-driven aircraft. For many, the highlight of the meeting was the first public airing of Tom Wheatcroft's Alfa Romeo 'Bimotore', this particular car being based on the smaller 5.8-litre (2x2.9...

Julian clearly

Now a well-established feature of the VSCC's Mallory Park meeting, the Williams Trophy for two-seater Grand Prix cars attracted a more varied entry than of late due to a degree of latitude being allowed in adhering to the original entry criteria. As in recent years, however, traditional Bugatti representation was thin on the ground with only five examples taking the start. Favourite was Sir John...

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...

Veteran to classic -- historic racing

Historic Racing Resumé One of the most fascinating aspects of this year's series of historic races for sportscars of that era has been the way the old 1500 class battles between Lotus and Cooper have been repeated. Of the eight races held thus far in the season, counting the two halves of the Christie's race at Silverstone as separate events, four have gone to Lotus Xls and four to Coopers....

Hawthorn Time

The highlight of the VSCC's Hawthorn Memorial Trophy Meeting at Silverstone was the race-long battle for the Boulogne Trophy between Tim Llewellyn's tyre-smoking 3/8-litre Bentley (now running with an unpainted aluminium body) and Mark Walker's Cirrus Hermes-engined Parker-GN. Once Peter Morley's Napier Bentley had been ousted from the lead halfway round the first lap, Llewellyn led home, but was...
