Sensible Skegness

A reader, Mr Jack Tatham of Wollaton, has drawn my attention to a feature which a local newspaper published last year about the old motor racing days at Skegness.

The Calthorpe

For some unaccountable reason I am apt to think of Calcott, Calthorpe, Clufey and Clyno as the four "Cs" of the vintage light-car era I have had some association with three of them. Of the foursome, the Calthorpe was the most sporting and racing-oriented make; the Clyno was covered in May's MOTOR SPORT.
