Around the tracks

VSCC: Prescott Dean's Bugatti scorches to the top Charles Dean maintained his strong run of form to take FTD with his Bugatti Type 51 in the VSCC's traditional August hillclimb at Prescott The hugely popular event was blessed with glorious weather for all but the latter runs and, in spite of the increasingly damp and slippery conditions, Dean stopped the clock at 43sec on his second run to clip...

That Edwardian Race

The VSCC Edwardian race at the two-day Oulton Park Meeting last July aroused so much enthusiasm and favourable comment that I am encouraged to take another look at it. The entry was varied and excellent but could have been even more enjoyable. Of the big Edwardians which made such an impression when the VSCC first introduced them to spectators in 1936 some were missing. For instance, the 200hp...

Reports in brief

John Burton started the Orwell Supersports Cup in great style at Dijon in his Chevron B26.

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...

Around the tracks

Bradley takes Brands Supersports double in big March Frank Bradley won both legs of the Orwell Supersports Cup in Richard Dodkins' monstrous March 717 during the HSCC's annual Superprix at Brands Hatch in June. The reformation of the pan-European series brought 36 cars to the undulating Grand Prix track. Sadly missing, though, was the awesome BRM P154 of Jost Kalisch, who decided that he didn't...

Miscellany

So extremely popular have been MGs that a great number of books have covered their design, development, the different models and their racing and rally successes. I have 26 on my bookshelves and that is only part of it. Haynes has now included another, MGB by David Knowles. It covers the MGC and MGB GT V8, with data on each, but is mainly a vivid colour kaleidoscope on miscellaneous items,...

White sees the light before black clouds spread gloom

Torrential rain ruined the Shuttleworth and Nuffield Trophy at the VSCC's Cadwell Park meet in early June. With the track flooded, the race was halted after four laps and was not restarted. John Ure had been leading in ERA R9B at the time. Before the rain arrived, Brian White took his Frazer Nash TT Replica to victory in the FN/GN race and the Melville and Geoghegan Trophies race. The John...

VSCC at Pembrey

Having lost the use of Oulton Park and Cadwell Park, through no fault of its own, the VSCC went to Pembrey, currently Wales's only permanent racing facility, for its meeting on June 26. It worked out extremely well. The 1.456-mile circuit is interestingly twisty, enjoyable for racing on with the older cars, offers good viewing opportunities and, although there is no bridge between the working...

VSCC Cadwell Park

Fatal crash mars popular meeting The death of Len Thompson cast a heavy shadow over the VSCC's yearly Cadwell Park meeting. The crash that claimed the life of the Lagonda Rapier racer, and left Riley ace Pete Candy seriously injured, came at the close of what had otherwise been an entertaining day's racing at the tricky Lincolnshire venue. Topping the programme was the Shuttleworth and Nuffield...
