An August Assembly

Although it was not the last VSCC race this year, the August meeting at Cadwell Park retained its delightful atmosphere, rare sunshine filtering through the trees of the scenic and hilly circuit where BBC cameras were stationed — but only for the motorcycle event of the Bank Holiday Monday. Unfortunately the major event, the Williams Trophy, was curtailed after an alarming accident stopped what...

A whiff of old Brooklands

The Young Special When a respected monthly motoring contemporary published a picture of Tom Walker's Young Special at the VSCC Donington Park race meeting last year it bore a caption suggesting that this car has "the double disadvantage of having a Frazer Nash chassis and a one-off engine which was built for Brooklands but never even got off the line there." This caused me to raise an eyebrow (in...

A 1906/7 Targa FlorioType Fiat reborn

Having heard intriguing accounts of how a Targa Florio type Fiat had been rescued from an Irish bog and immaculately reborn, and then seen it open this year's VSCC Prescott hill climb in fine fashion, I went, on one of the few hot days this summer, to visit Graham Rankin, the car's fortunate owner, and learn more about it. Rankin is such a fitting custodian for a motor-car of this kind. Let me...

Club Prizes

The Morgan Three-Wheeler Club's AGM weekend went with a swing, with at least 60 Morgans attending at Malvern. The prizes presented did not involve Concours d'Elegance, this club preferring to give them for using Morgans rather than polishing them! This ideal is reflected in an article in its current Bulletin about how to supercharge a Matchless Twin . . . The prize-list is too long to include in...

VSCC Oulton Park

Speed orgy "The Vintage Sports Car Club again ran a two-day "speed orgy" at Oulton Park road-circuit this year, on the last weekend in July, over the extended (2.769-mile) course, with a chicane to slow the cars before Hill Top approaching Knicker Brook. The entry of 227 contested 14 races, supplemented by bicycle frolics, an 89-car concours d'elegance, a big autojumble, and even a fun-fair —...

Stretton stumped

Cadwell Park hosted the VSCC's final race meeting of the year, the event moving from its traditional August Bank Holiday slot to September 20. With the Williams Trophy now having moved to Mallory Park, the main race was for Pre-War Racing Cars, supported by John Scott & Partners. Considerable interest centred on Martin Stretton's chances of challenging traditional ERA supremacy in this class...

Veteran to classic: Donington Historic GP Race

Glory for all "The Race of the Year" — that was the bold title the Historic Grand Prix Cars Association chose for its 100-mile two-legged event at Donington, and events proved it right. No fewer than 29 Grand Prix cars (plus reserves) lined up for the first of two 50-mile heats on the 50th anniversary of Nuvolari's great victory in his Auto-Union at the Derbyshire track. Neil Corner brought his...

Richard Seaman Memorial Trophies

Saturday The weather Gods decided to look kindly upon the VSCC when they hosted their annual pilgrimage to OuIton Park following conditions which have ranged, in recent years, from indifferent to downright awful. And what a splendid change it made, with racing to match, one of the highlights being a superb turnout of Edwardians on the Sunday. Saturday's opening scratch race was red-flagged on the...
