HSCC Brands Hatch

Fast becoming one of the highlights of the racing calender is the two day HSCC meeting held on the Brands Hatch Grand Prix Circuit.

It was unfortunate that the rains came on the Saturday but if you're...

Bugatti O C Prescott

The Bugatti Owners' Club can be relied upon to produce a fine collection of sporting carriages, but an International meeting at Prescott is an occasion when even this illustrious club surpasses itself. On entering the paddock a row of multi-coloured Bugatti's confronted one, as did the E.R.A.s, which were also present en masse. Coopers, both 500 and 1,100 cc abounded, with rather fewer Loti and...
