What hath the Sabre-Six?

It has come to my notice, as they say in the more stuffy business letters, that the Reliant Sabre-Six, although it has been out of production for some time, has become the "in-thing" with a number of discerning members of the Frazer Nash Chain-Gang—and they do not come much more discriminating than that. I must say, although I am aware of how well Robin Rew's Sabre-Six goes in VSCC Pomeroy Trophy...

VSCC Silverstone Meeting (July 18th)

The Vintage SCC held another successful race meeting at Silverstone last month, in sunshine, without accidents, but with enough exciting incidents and close racing to hold the interest of those present, but with Neil Corner not on winning form, while the ERAs were mainly non-runners. The traditional one-hour high-speed trial opened the day's sport, 17 drivers qualifying for awards, including...

The Brooklands Re-Union (June 29th)

Following in the tyre tracks of Rex Judd, whose splendid idea the Brooklands Re-Union of Weybridge racing motorcyclists was, Dudley Gahagan and William Boddy, Editor of Motor Sport, decided that so many people—drivers, mechanics, journalists and spectators—have such happy memories of the old Motor Course that the car side, too, should have its Re-Union. This duly took place at the "Hand &...

My Year's Motoring

The Editor Looks Back on the Cars He Drove in 1957 I tested fewer cars for Motor Sport last year than I did in 1956. This had nothing to do with old age, lack of opportunity or decreasing enthusiasm. The fact is that, as you may remember, petrol rationing returned during the early part of the year, which is a pretty disgraceful thing to have to put on record, for, although no one expects to enjoy...

Veteran — Edwardian — Vintage

A Section Devoted to Old-Car Matters THE V.S.C.C. OULTON PARK RACE MEETING (June 25th) PERHAPS the best of the Vintage S.C.C. race meetings, this fixture fell on the last Saturday in flaming June, so naturally it poured with rain most of the day. This did not spoil the sport, and some very good racing took place. Practice produced some unfortunate eliminations. Seddon's Lagonda Rapier collided...

VSCC Driving Tests

Having held driving-tests at Enstone in December, the Vintage Sports Car Club decided it would like some more in January. It held them at Barton Stacey Camp near Andover. Notwithstanding the weather, 74 entries came in, number one rightly being given to Tanner's impressive 1902 9 1/4-litre racing Mors, although it was a long way from Paris or Vienna. Alas, it retired. Setting off to watch, we...

750 Club The 750 Club meeting at the "Osterley" on May 3rd went over big, as usual, many useful contacts being made, much motoring conversation indulged in, and, best of all, George Monkhouse showed his inimitable films of Grand Prix racing of the 1935-38 period. There is no gainsaying the value of these meetings as a break from the monotony or excitement of war-effort existence, and everyone who...
