50 years on

In order to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of VE Day, the HSCC hosted a one-off two-day Historic race meeting at Donington Park, and with the assistance of a number of specialist clubs and groups, including the VSCC and HGPCA, assembled a quite superb entry, which, in terms of variety and quality, was second only to the Coys Festival in the British racing calendar, with on-track action being...

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...

The arrow that pierced the iron curtain

Rumours, gossip and bribes clouded the hunt for a treasure lost behind the Iron Curtain since WW11. But what a treasure - a genuine Silver Arrows Mercedes-Benz By Doug Nye Settle down now, this is complicated... It was like a John Le Carre novel. December, 1988, and three of us had just flown into a frail and tense Communist Rumania. We had realised just how frail by evident cost-cutting on the...

Past winners flocked Monaco historic GP

No fewer than six Monaco Grand Prix-wining cars head a glittering entry for the second Grand Prix Historique, with Sir Stirling Moss reunited with Maserati 250F '2522' in which he triumphed in 1956, for an event which is guaranteed to bring the hallowed streets of Monte Carlo alive on May 27-28. Many other machines which shaped the history of the principality's famous race are coming from around...

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...

Veteran to Classic - The 1990 Brighton Run

It was good that in the Diamond Jubilee Year of the Veteran Car Club of Great Britain the RAC Veteran Car Commemoration Run on November 4 went off so well. The weather was sunny but cold and the continuing interest in actually running veteran cars cannot be denied when an entry of 402 is received, with 76 reserves hoping to go off to the seaside along the historic route on the day before the...

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...

Grand Prix de Monaco historique

Monaco welcomes back real racing The Historic Grand Prix at Monaco was spectacular for all of the right reasons. Christopher Tate reports on a memorable weekend 'Motion is tranquility' is one of Stirling Moss's favourite maxims about life - and about motor racing.

Less Stress At Silverstone

A new circuit for the Coys Festival was the seal of a great weekend, says Alan Cox. This year's Coys International Historic Festival at Silverstone, in association with Chrysler to begin a five-year deal, was adjudged an overwhelming success on all counts, and was blissfully free of the rancour encountered last year over FIA involvement. One improvement which drew universally favourable approval...

Obituaries

Bertie and Mark Fisher The 'phone rang. It was Bertie. A smashing bloke. But my heart sank. Any time a driver called, I'd soon discovered, chances were that he had a complaint. I braced myself, tried to remember what error of mine had reached the printed page. But no, he just wanted to say thank you for the report Motoring News had run on his 1991 Rally of the Lakes win.
