We have frequently made reference to the excellent service operated by James Walker & Co., Ltd., Lion Works, Woking, Surrey, for old-car owners in need of new head and flange gaskets. A leaflet about this service is now available to anyone mentioning Motor Sport and writing to Mr. K. K. Gibbs. It illustrates a 1904 Tony Huber used in the Rank film "The Waltz of the Toreadors," which has...

The Remaining Easter Events

Bristol M.C. & L.C.C. Lulsgate Race Meeting The day's sport at Lulsgate was just the thing that club members and their friends crave, and it is difficult to see why more such meetings cannot be held on similar disused airfields. The organisation was first class, even to public address and a beer tent, the racing most interesting, and they even had fencing to keep onlookers from the fastest...

Brighton browsing

Looking around the veterans at the finish, we noticed the de Dion engine in Fotheringlaam-Parker's 1903 Renault, the snug landaulette body on Watters-Westbrook's 1903 Renault, the side radiators on Collinson's 1902 Renault, authentic Daimler lamps on Smith's 1903 Daimler and solid tyres on several cars, including Bartlett's 1901 Napier. Some veterans carry pet names, Timmis' Gladiator being...

To Brighton on Four Cylinders

The Editor Accompanies Geoffrey Frank on the Veteran Car Run in a 1902 15-h.p. Panhard et Levassor Each year, on the memorable day when the veterans go to Brighton, the V.C.C. is kind enough to find me a seat in, or on, one of the competing cars. In 1936 I went down on Dick Nash's 1900 Peugeot and in 1937 on the late Capt. Wylie's 1898 Hurtu — very literally "on" in both instances! In the post-...

We Hear R. S. Strachan is restoring a 1928 "20.9" Sunbeam chassis and craves a suitable body and wings for it. R. L. Walker has rebuilt a Singer "Le Mans" with modern two-seater bodywork, even to a modern frontal aspect and his own spray-painting, working in a shed and using the minimum of equipment.

Matters of moment

Short Staffed Motor Sport will be a bit understaffed on the road-test front for the next few weeks. Not because we are cutting down on employees or cannot afford the salaries, but on account of the quirks of British Justice. Some of those who drive cars for us, which is what motoring journalism is mostly all about, have had their driving licences temporarily suspended. Why ? For exceeding the...

Matters of moment

Fun from your fuel With the cost of everyday existence ever rising, Britain running up enormous debts, and food prices failing to stabilise, those pessimists who forecast that the cost of a gallon of petrol will soon be £1 are probably right, or not far wrong. Which gives rise to the thought that with the cost of this essential fluid so high it behoves all of us to get the best we can from it,...
