VSCC Donington

Once again, the Richard Seaman Trophies meeting at Donington on October 1 brought the VSCC racing season to a close and attracted healthy entries for most events, with Tim Llewellyn taking his fourth Vintage Seaman while David Morris took his first Historic Seaman Trophy to add to father Martin's tally of ten victories. The Brookiands Society Trophy featured a varied field, with John Seber's...

A Charade, Albi bound

As the historic racing season drew to a close, Richard and Trisha Pilkington's TOPS historic racing car club masterminded an 'end of term' October tour culminating in a Grand Prix car demonstration at the Albi historic meeting. This was prefaced by a period of tyre-testing with the new range of Michelin-produced Englebert historic racing tyres, and a private familiarisation session at the...

Trimmer hustles Lola to Bell glory

May 6/7Brands hero storms field with F5000 Lola while Amon shows pace but fragility in GPM encounter The return to racing of the unique Amon F101 and the spectacle of Tony Trimmer reunited with his Lola T332 F5000 car were just two highlights of the HSCC's 17th Brands Hatch Superprix. Although the HGPCA fields were down a little with the Monaco Historic GP just a fortnight away, the racing lacked...

Matters of moment

I will remember for some time the sense of joy that swept through the office the day we found out that Alain Prost was prepared to talk to us about Ayrton Senna. As you can perhaps imagine, this was no small matter for Prost and he made clear his misgivings about breaking his silence from the start. That was all some time ago. Formula One team bosses are never the easiest characters to track down...

Historic Season Preview 2000

For the historic motor racing fan this season promises to be the biggest and best yet. Marcus Pye looks ahead for ways to while away a summer weekend History, by its very definition, grows inexorably. Every segment of time consigns its predecessor to the past, leaving memories spanning the full gamut of emotions. The duration of a calendar is pre-defined, for a year is a year, but the pace of...

The real McCoys

Now in its fourth year, and with London auctioneer and long-time supporter of historic racing, Coys, taking over sponsorship of the event from Christies, the Silverstone Historic Festival continues to maintain the very highest standard and quality of entry. As in previous years all races were run in two parts, except for the FIA Historic Touring Car race, and with entries for all but the...

Donington Park HSCC

Donington's Historic Superprix produced some of the most varied historic racing this year, worthy of far greater attendance. Alan Cox reports on some excellent racing for those who did turn up. The highlight was undoubtedly the two rounds of the European Historic F2 Championship. From pole for Saturday's race, Rob Hall (March 712) was languishing in eighth after the first lap, which was led by...

Letters from Readers

Sir, I am left almost (but not quite) speechless with indignation on hearing suggestions for the inclusion of one or more foreign drivers in the final B.R.M. team. Already, too many people in the world think we are going soft. It seems to me that hiring foreign drivers for our cars would be a very good way of confirming it. Quite apart from that angle, it is fantastic to suggest that we cannot...

Hawthorn Time

The highlight of the VSCC's Hawthorn Memorial Trophy Meeting at Silverstone was the race-long battle for the Boulogne Trophy between Tim Llewellyn's tyre-smoking 3/8-litre Bentley (now running with an unpainted aluminium body) and Mark Walker's Cirrus Hermes-engined Parker-GN. Once Peter Morley's Napier Bentley had been ousted from the lead halfway round the first lap, Llewellyn led home, but was...
