BOC Prize-Giving

The Bugatti Owners Club held its annual Prize-Giving Luncheon at the Chateau Impney at Droitwich on November 26th last year, with their new Chairman Barry Price in control.

But the ice that morning had kept all the Bugattis at home, for fear of salt-pollution, and the car-park had only a light dusting of Ferraris and...

Cars I have owned

Reports of Recent Events

Kentish Border Sporting Trial Thirty-seven competitors started under watery sunshine from the "Spring Tavern," Wrotham Heath. The route embraced four observed hills, one bonus hill, one special test and one timed climb.

Veteran to classic -- Silver Hawk

Out in a Silver Hawk Through the generosity of Austin/Rover I was able to investigate, at their Solihull test-track, Chris Gordon's 1920/21 Silver Hawk, the only one of its kind extant, surely, although there is an engine and gearbox of a different type at a Sussex museum. How Chris was able to add this interesting racing light-car to his stable which includes amongst others the 1915 Hudson,...

VCC Roll of Honours

The Veteran Car Club's AGM takes place on March 28 at the RAC. It awarded 25 major trophies for last season, a list too long to publish in full, but it is interesting to note that the Lord Victor Ludorum Trophy and two others were won by Miss S Strong (1904 Humberette/1914 Sunbeam). The Stanley Sears Trophy went to Edwards and Curtis (1904 Hotchkiss), the Milex Trophy to Pickard's 1905 De Dion...

Bugatti OC Opening Rally

My wife and I were honoured to receive invitations to the 1977 Opening Rally and Prize-giving of the Bugatti OC. This took place, as usual, at the Chateau Impney Hotel at Droitwich. The car-park was not exactly conspicuous for the number of Bugattis it held, as there was no beauty-show this time, but the lunch was very well supported. Afterwards A.W. Rippon, in the Chair, was in fine form and...
