Bug steals Herts limelight
Organised by the Friends of Tewin, the Tewin Classic Car and Crafts Show continues to grow and the 11th running attracted some 450 cars to the Hertfordshire town’s cricket pitch on 19 August.
Star of the day was a 1935 Bugatti Type 57 Ventoux that was owned by the French embassy in London and has remained in England ever since. Among the club displays, the Singer OC fielded a fascinating line-up including David Freeth’s ’36 Le Mans Speed Special. Bought in 1959 as a source of spares, it was rebuilt and returned to the road in 1963 to resume a competition career stretching back to the ’40s.
