Classic Sports Car - - Your Events -

Clubs turned out in force at the Cas­tle Combe Au­tumn Clas­sic (Sport, De­cem­ber 2017), with a vast range of ve­hi­cles from hot rods to young­timers. The Ri­ley Regis­ter fielded an im­pres­sive spread of ma­chin­ery in­clud­ing a ’39 16hp ‘Big Four’ Kestrel coupé, a gor­geous two-tone two-door built on what must be a short­ened ‘Blue Streak’ chas­sis. Nearby, there was a fine dis­play of Hethel types from Club Lo­tus, the His­toric Lo­tus Regis­ter and the His­toric Lo­tus Club.

Among the size­able As­so­ci­a­tion of Healey Own­ers and Healey Driv­ers group was an Alvis-healey. Just 25 3-litre G-se­ries were made, be­cause it was over­shad­owed by what would be­come the Austin­healey 100. A fine Bris­tol Own­ers’ Her­itage Trust turnout fea­tured a glo­ri­ous pre-war BMW 326 saloon.
