Martini Trophy Meeting (July 6th)

The National Open Martini Trophy Meeting, with five races round the full Silverstone circuit, organised by the Aston Martin O.C. in conjunction with the Martini International Club, was marred by bad luck and bad weather. In practice on the Friday the Hon. J. Dawnay lost his Aston Martin DBR1/300 at Woodcote and spun into M. Fielden's Lotus standing at the pits. The driver, who was sitting in the...

Looking Back on Chris Amon

“He’s getting to be another Chris Amon…” How many times have we heard that comment made over the years about Formula One drivers who, although undeniably talented, seem never quite able to grasp that elusive, first Grand Prix victory.

The racing at Rouen

ROUEN, FRANCE, July 10th AT the Reims meeting the Formula Two and Formula Three races had been the supporting events, but at Rouen they were the main attractions and as support the V.S.C.C., in conjunction with their French equivalent, organised an Historic Car Race, which to many eyes was the major attraction! The Formula Two race was the third round in the French series, further events being...

Vintage tailpiece

Steam at Bishop's Castle (August 31st) I like to go to at least one traction-engine rally and one flying display a year, if the opportunity arises. This is good for one's sense of proportion, apart from the obvious contrast between such events. This year it came to the late summer Bank Holiday and I'd not done either, when I remembered that the County of Salop Steam Engine Society's Rally...

Veteran Edwardian Vintage

A Section Devoted to Old-Car Matters V.S.C.C. Prescott Speed Hill-Climb (August 19th) This is always a pleasant occasion and, in spite of an overcast sky and one shower of rain, this year's event was no exception. It was enjoyed by a very big crowd of spectators-and their dogs. Although the vintage course record of 44.57 sec. held by Hull (E.R.A.) wasn't broken, Chapman with his Tecnauto i.f.s....

V.S.C.C. Pomeroy Memorial Trophy Competition

This contest was instituted by the late Laurence Pomeroy in memory of his father, who designed Vauxhall and Daimler cars of the vintage era. He gave a Rex Hays' model of a 1914 G.P. Vauxhall as a prize, stipulating that various tests be held to determine the best all-round touring car. Now that Laurence Pomeroy, too, is dead, this competition constitutes a fitting memorial to both father and son...

V.S.C.C. Silverstone Meeting (July 21st)

This meeting attracted an excellent crowd, remembering that the Grand Prix at Aintree was on the same day. The main event of the day was the 50-km. Boulogne Trophy race. Margulies, making one of his rare appearances with the ex-Bira Maserati, led away from the start but very soon Sid Day, driving his own E.R.A. R6B (having taken over the Hon. Patrick Lindsay's entry, as the E.R.A. "Remus" had...
