AUTOSPORT INTERNATIONAL If it has wheels and an engine then someone somewhere is using it in competition against those of a similar mind. It doesn’t matter if it’s custom made, modified or bought as standard. The thrill is to compete and through endeavor to win. And so it was to the NEC in January that many such people headed, willing moths to the bright lights of motorsport nirvana.

AUTOSPORT INTERNATIONAL 2016 The 2016 Autosport International/Racing Car Show was yet again a hugely popular event, with Saturday and Sunday being sold out. With the full gamut of motorsport on display, there was certainly was something for everyone. Located across nine halls, with one changing focus way through. There were clubs, organizers and manufacturers showing modern, historic and classic cars for road, track, and off-road. Featuring high technology F1, through BTCC, single cylinder 50cc karts to twin V12 37 litre supercharged Rolls Royce Griffon engined tractor pulling monster machines. Built for competitions over times lasting from less than 10 seconds for top dragsters, 24 hour endurance racers to those lasting several days for the sideways through the tree’s Rally bods. If something has wheels and an engine then there is probably a race series to cover it and at Autosport International they could meet fellow competitors, talk techie and source those invaluable compo-

nents and gizmos that will definitely win them this years championship. For those looking for inspiration there were displays of road and race vehicles as well as demonstrations of driving skills and various forms of motor sport in the Live Action arena. In addition to the fun element there was also the serious side. The Motor Sport Association (MSA) were present with their experts on hand to discuss everything from getting started through to deep technical issues around specification requirements. For those aspiring to a career in motorsport leading Universities and colleges were present offering advice on how to take advantage of the opportunities available. Add in the opportunity meet and question the biggest names in motorsport; Damon Hill OBE, Allan McNish, 2016 BTCC drivers, etc., and it’s no wonder the show is so popular. See you there in 2017. 5

VSCC NEW YEAR DRIVING TESTS There are some places where history is so deeply ingrained that it pervades the surrounding space and infiltrates the visitors soul. Olympia in Greece is one such place, in use from 5BC for nearly 400 years it hosted competitions with 50,000 strong crowds a regular feature. For motorsport fans Brooklands holds a similar sentiment and is a VSCC regular venue and hosted their 2016 New Year Driving tests.

VSCC NEW YEAR DRIVING TESTS The original Olympic games were conducted under a truce to allow safe passage of athletes and spectators before, during and after the games. The site was sacred to Zeus and so remained free from desecration. Brooklands was opened in 1907 and was the worlds first purpose built car race track. However it didn’t have the same safeguards and when WWII broke out parts of it’s track were dug up and the home straight had an aircraft factory built on it. Despite these set backs Brooklands continues to flourish as a home to aviation and motorsport, hosting events throughout the year. Work is now in progress to remove the hanger on the site and that sits rebuild it on an adjacent part of the site. We’re talking here of hanger that was bolted together in 1940 measures 100ft wide, 180 ft long and 23ft ft high. If you’ve ever tried to undo rusty bolts for a car restoration you can probably imagine the task required just to take the building down in a manner that will allow re-construction later. Fortunately Brooklands has secured over £7M (circa $10M) for this and other site enhancements.

As ever the VSCC driving tests consisted of a simple looking but fiendishly difficult to complete tests across the site. A series of forward and reverse manoeuvres incorporating the steep banking and infamous Test Hill with its 1:4 top section. Winner for the best overall performance, the Tony Jones Trophy, was George Diffey (Austin 7), a repeat of his 2015 Winter tests win. With Angus Frost (Austin 7) and Miss Alex Pilkington (in a rather splendid Alfa Romeo 6C 1750) taking other class wins. For those that believe such things the ghost of Percy Lambert is reputed to haunt the track. Trying to beat his previous record of 103.84 mph in mid 1913 he perished. In full racing garb he now walks the track in perpetuity. I feel sure he would approve of the current competitions and the enhancement work now in progess.

THE LONDON CLASSIC CAR SHOW Getting to the venue can be an interesting geographical treat. From the west it’s via East India, from the east it’s via Cyprus and from the south you can arrive via a Middle Eastern airline and be in the hall within a couple of minutes. Inside it was a celebration of the McLaren F1 super car, a Six Nations Classic Car challenge and a Club Square featuring affordable classics. Add in a sprinkling of Group B rally machinery and the London Classic Car show had that extra special something.

THE LONDON CLASSIC CAR SHOW In the main hall along each side of the Grand Avenue cars from the exotica to the ordinary, proudly displayed their virtues. Resplendent in highly polished body work and gleaming chrome under bright lights. A delight for the crowd and a nightmare for photographers due to the multiple reflections. ‘The Pinnacle of Rallying’ featuring ferocious Group B machinery and ‘McLaren F1; the inside Story’ with road and race variants of the iconic design from the pen of Gordon Murray, occupied adjacent corners. Each a unique and in-depth showcase for these very different genres but ones that made significant advances in motoring technology. Complementing these at the other end of the hall was a display charting the evolution of the supercar, Miura to Veyron. The Grand Avenue’s six nations showcase featuring the best of; Great Britain, Germany, Japan, France, the USA, and Italy. Stolid Brit-

ish fare - Rolls Royce Silver Ghost, Blower Bentley’s through Land Rover Defender to Mini and the McLaren F1. Italian svelte super cars - Ferrari, the Japanese love of small but precision and technology - Honda N800 and Nissan GTR, gallic charm - Citroen 2CV, Germany with teutonic thoroughness - Audi quattro, and American confidence with a V8 burble, be-finned Cadillac’s and a Ford Thunderbird. With Great Britain taking a narrow win on visitor votes over Italy. Across Excel’s central divide was ‘Club Square’ with less glitz but home to more affordable classics, where you might get change from £100,000 and the occasion surprise. The low slung Probe 16 in bright orange as befits the car that featured in the ‘clockwork’ film of the same name being one. Overall a show of two halves, but none the worse for that. And I’m sure the 2017 version will build on this years success. 14

VSCC POMEROY TROPHY 2016 There can’t be many motorsport events where the key entry requirements are; the ability to carry two suitcases, be street legal and have a roof. On a wind swept and damp Saturday at Silverstone the Vintage Sports car Club (VSCC) held its annual Pomerol Trophy competition featuring cars from the early 1900’s to those less than 10 years old.

©CJM-PHOTOGRAPHY


©CJM-PHOTOGRAPHY

VSCC POMEROY TROPHY Due to petrol rationing in the late forties/early fifties The Pomeroy Trophy in its current format started in 1952. Initially awarded for ‘Outstanding Service to the Club’ it’s presented in memory of Laurence Pomeroy Snr, the celebrated Vauxhall designer. Calculations devised by his son Laurence Pomeroy Jnr enabled a system to determining the efficiency of GP engines and this formula is still the basis to determine the winner. The competition consists of a series of five tests. These being; a wiggle-woggle (slalom), braking, time to cover 0.25 kilometers from a standing start, flying 0.25 Km and then a handicapped number of laps of the Silverstone national circuit. So how did a 1930’s Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 fair against an Alfa Romeo GTV from 2000, or a BMW Frazer Nash 328 against an M3?

With the first tests completed before luncheon, the afternoon featured the circuit laps. It was quite a sight to see a Healey 3000 passing a Hupmobile (from 1909) around Luffield, or a Turner Mk3 overtake a Ford Model A Roadster. Or watching as a Triumph Dolomite Sprint tried to out handle a Jaguar XK120 on a rain soaked Silverstone? During these sessions enthusiasm sometimes exceeded the limits of adhesion and minor delays occurred. Overall victory and the Pomeroy Trophy went to Dudley Sterry in an 1937/39 HRS Sports. David Wylie in a 1928 Frazer Nash AC took the Denham Trophy and the Pomeroy Edwardian Trophy went to David Biggins in his 1911/12 Vauxhall Prince Henry replica. A thoroughly enjoyable days motorsport.

RACE RETRO Once again the National Agricultural and Exhibition Centre (NAEC) at Stoneleigh Park in Warwickshire swapped bucolic smells and sounds for those of more automotive derivation. For many its major attraction is the combination of static exhibitions and the open air Rally and Historic Karting stage. At last a classic/historic show that also incorporated fresh air. Although if you were in the halls after the street car burn-outs you might dispute this. Among the exhibits the Historic Sports Car Club (HSCC) had a fine display of racers to celebrate their 50th anniversary. Damon Hill OBE participated in a Q&A session amongst a selection of Williams F1 machinery past and more recent. For those in search of automotive retail therapy, stalls set up in the more rustic areas offered everything from tools to parts to complete that on-going project.

Out on the live stage on both Satuday and Sunday the venerable British Historic Kart Club (BHKC) demonstrated the ability of a wide a variety of machines. With direct steering, no suspension, a small wheel at each corner and a seat close to the ground, it’s back to basics racing. And that’s part of its success, driver skill being the prednant factor in winning. No wonder so many top F1 pilots learnt their craft at the wheel of a kart. Taking a longer circuit, the rally cars diced around straw bales and did their best to avoid the barriers and grassy edges. Although tracks across the grass suggested this wasn’t always successful. From ubiquitous Mini’s and MkI Escorts to WRC scoobies they put on a good show for the appreciative crowds braving the cold to watch the action. Race Retro will be back at Stoneleigh in 2017.

74TH GOODWOOD MEMBERS MEETING Once again the ides of March heralded the 74th Members Meeting, the first major classic event of 2016. With a 12 race card featuring GT40’s to Edwardian vehicles and for the first time two wheeled racers. Add in demo sessions from 1980s ground effect F1 cars, Group 5 Le Mans Sports cars, Super Touring cars, plus Jochen Mass and Mika Hakkinen in a pair of Silver Arrows it was a weekend with high expectations.

74TH GOODWOOD MEMBERS MEETING There was close on 10 hours of track activity on both days with a glamorous evenings entertainment on Saturday concluding with a firework finale. To bolster points won through racing there were various diversions; tug-of-war, duck herding, etc., to be tackled alongside enthusiastic house captains and fellow members. All in the spirit of healthy competition and friendly rivalry. For those that took their pleasure in a mode sedate manner there was the opportunity to indulge in the food and drink and watch from a suitable vantage point, or huddle round a blazing open wood fire. Without denigrating any of the racers there were three that for me stood out from the twelve over the weekend. Firstly the Alan Mann Trophy. Just the sight and sound of 25 GT40’s in close competition into the dusk, headlights blazing, brake discs glowing red, and the occasional spit of exhaust flame was truly magnificent. Then the S F

Edge Trophy for pre-1923 specials. A diverse range of vehicles many a variation on the wheeled bedstead with an aero-engine and some brakes concept. The drivers visibly wrestling with the steering wheel to maintain a semblance of control. It also gave the closest finish of any races, a mere 0.23 seconds between first (Duncan Pittaway - GN Curtiss) and second (Mathias Seilecki - Delage DH V12). The two part Gerry Marshall Trophy pitted American V8 muscle cars against the best British saloons with famous and respected drivers at the wheel. resulting in door handle to door handle, fair but firm racing. Victory going to Chris Ward (Rover 3500 SD1) in the first race and a Bryant/Bryant combo (Chevrolet Camaro Z28) in the second. Overall Anthony Reid’s Methuen took top school honours for the third successive time. Made a note on my report card for Aubugny - ‘must do better next time’. 33

PEUGEOT 308GTI Hot hatchbacks are back, there’s the Focus ST, venerable very fast Golf’s and now Peugeot are offering a 308GTi. Does it really hark back to the thrill of a 205GTi from the mists of the 80’s. Is it a worthy contender in today’s competitive market place. Is it a plain and rather dull vin ordinarie in a posh frock or something with panache and fizz something to be enjoyed and savoured like a premier cru champagne?

©CJM-PHOTOGRAPHY


Peugeot 308 GTi 270 0-62mph; 6.2 seconds Max Speed; 155 mph CO2; 139g/Km Price as tested; £29,695

PEUGEOT 308GTI 270 COUPE FRANCHE This is not a car that shouts what it is. No big wheel arches, no broad white stripe, not even a boot spoiler. Even though this car has more power than the fabled Escort Cosser of yesteryear. But don’t be deceived, this is a properly quick car, 0 - 60mph in just over 6 seconds and a quoted top speed of 155mph are strong figures. Furthermore the performance is useable in UK conditions, the Torsen® diff taking care of torque steer when pulling out of junctions and a well matched 6 speed gear box for overtaking and swooping B roads. With 19” rims painted with 35 section tyres it’s never going to be a soft ride, but it’s on the pleasant side of firm. Although the proliferation of pot holes could take their toll if you weren’t careful. Inside the cabin is well trimmed in black with red stitching the sports bucket seats comfortable even for someone over 6ft and not exactly svelte. The rear is perhaps a bit of ‘eeyore’s gloomy place’ it’s all black headlining/trim and darkened rear windows. These severely restrict vision especially at night. So unless you have ugly kids/ relatives in the back that you want to hide, they seem as case of ‘vanity over sanity’. And you’ll get a couple of adults in the rear seats.

The large central display covers the usual functions, Sat Nav, Radio, etc., and most of the controls are logically laid out. Although the column mounted auxiliary controls stalk was completely hidden by the steering wheel and I couldn’t see any of the functions. The Tacho goes anti-clockwise, different but something you’d probably get used to. If it wasn't for the fraise au chocolat paint work this would look like any other 4 door saloon rather than the pocket rocket it really is. It can be driven sedately enough not to scare your granny and be economical enough not to threaten polar bears. But, that's not the reason you'd buy one. This is a properly quick car and one that can be driven with confidence and alacrity by most enthusiastic drivers in a relaxed flowing manner. Engage sport mode and you get a bit more fizz, red dials, extra displays and enhanced engine note via the sound system. If you're a driver who likes driving, enjoys power under their right foot but has the sense to know when and when not use it, then I would say it’s a car that should be on your list when looking for your next car. 41

24H SILVERSTONE Had Gene Pitney been racing rather than Chris Rea, this might have been called “24 hours from Towcester”. This years 24 hours at Silverstone was a round of the new Touring Cars Endurance series, an FIA championship series. As precursors to the 24 hour main event there were; HRDC Coy’s Trophy, Dunlop Prototypes, and Caterham Super 7’s rounds.

24H SILVERSTONE, OR 24 HOURS FROM TOWCESTER. HRDC Coys Trophy. An eclectic grid of 40+ cars from V8 Americana behemoths to a clutch of nippy Austin A35’s with a Standard Vanguard, a Deep Sanderson 301 and Chris Rea in his Police liveried Morris Minor. On the GP circuit grip is as important as grunt, as expected the TVR Griffith’s of Mike Whitaker and John Spiers took the top honours. Dunlop Prototypes. Ginetta chairman Lawrence Tomlinson in a G57 took both wins. Paul White in another G57 had a second and third with the paring of Michael Hunermann and Sir Chris Hoy (Radical RXC) second place in race two. Craig Dolby (Riley MkXXII) took third in race two denying Ginetta of a clear podium sweep for the weekend. Super 7 Inter Series. For each of the two races large grids resulted in seemingly hordes of fluorescent bees chasing around the GP circuit. Slip streaming to gain advantage as the cars are so closely matched. Danny Killeen took a pole to flag victory in race 1 chased by Paul Thacker throughout to second. In race two it was Paul

Thacker’s turn to race from pole to flag, with Paul O’Reilly taking second with Andy West again in third. At 16:00 on the Saturday 41 cars scorched away to begin the epic race. After 24 hours 32 cars were still running, with the winners having completed 512 laps a testament to all the hard work put in by the teams and drivers. As the time rolled on the gremlins rolled in, a wonky door frame here, a blown turbo there, or the need for a complete new engine. Such is the stuff 24 hour endurance racing is made of. With night fall came the rain, a drizzle at first then the proper stuff. Racing on slicks in such conditions led to the inventible Red 60 flags coming out but no serious incidents. After 15 hours the leading team, Bleekemolen, were forced to retire. At the flag it was a dream victory for team ABBA with Rollcentre Racing’s BMW M3 V8, having had to start at the back of the grid due to a driveshaft failure preventing the setting of a qualifying time. Red Camel-Jordan took second and MemacOgilvy Duel racing third, both with Seat Leon Cup Racers. 44

EPILOQUE Despite some cold and rainy times the 2016 season has gotten off to a good start. Although incidents at the 74th Goodwood Members Meeting remind us all that motor racing can be unpredictable. Fortunately those involved are recovering well. The weather doesn’t yet seemed to have understood that it’s now May. But I’m sure warmer days aren’t far away and we’ll be able to enjoy the racing under bright skies and warm breezes. Scheduled for the next edition, HSCC 50th Anniversary Meeting, Castle Combe VSCC Spring Start, Silverstone. Donington Historic Festival London Motor Show Silverstone Classic preview Plus …….. Parting thought; Plato said “Courage is knowing what not to fear”, thats Plato 427347 BC, not the current BTCC driver, maybe he’s very distantly related?
