Mayman rules!

The M.C.C. at Silverstone BEFOR1.?, the war t lie Motor Cycling Club's Members' Meeting at Brooklands was one of the high-lights of the clubman's season.

Sunshine and Castrol R

The final VSCC meeting of the year at Cadwell Park on August 26th was blessed with perfect weather.

THE J.C.C. TWO-HUNDRED MILE RACE.

V.S.C.C. Bisley Meeting Another worthwhile Vintage S.C.C. meeting was held at Bisley on October 12th, when the assembled cars were almost as interesting as the tests in which they subsequently took part. Three cars obviously well in the running for the Concours were Abbott's immaculate 1904 Mercédès, Richards' early "12/50" Alvis tourer with incredibly-polished engine (having, however, two S.U.s...

Cemian M.G. Kent Cup Trial This trial was held in fine weather on February 19th. Fifteen starters got away on time from the Spring Tavern, Wrotham Heath. Unfortunately the short spell of dry weather had dried up the hills since the Trials Secretary had inspected them and consequently they were moderately easy.
