Current issue.

The September issue contains our massive report on the Worlds biggest Classic Motorsport event, the Silverstone Classic. Report and photos from the FIA Masters Historic Formula One race (F1), The HGPCA Pre ’66 Grand Prix cars in the Maserati Trophy, the 50th-anniversary celebration Formula Ford race, and the Commander Yorke Trophy for Historic Formula Junior. Moving to sports cars there are the Stirling Moss Trophy for Pre ’61 Sports Cars, the Kidston Trophy for Pre War Sports cars (VSCC), the Royal Automobile Club (RAC) Woodcote Trophy for Pre ’56 Sports cars and the FIA Masters Historic Sports cars for Le Mans cars of the 1960s and early 70s, and Group C sports cars. The GT category had races for the Royal Automobile Club (RAC) Tourist Trophy for Historic Cars (Pre ’63), the Jaguar Classic Challenge, and the Gallet International Trophy for Classic GT cars (Pre ’66). Moving finally to saloons, there was the John Fitzpatrick Trophy for Under 2 litre touring cars (U2TC),  the JET Super Touring Car Trophy for Group A and Super Tourismo class cars, and a celebrity race for Austin A30 and Austin A35 saloons.

Vintage car fans have reports from the VSCC Formula Vintage race meeting at Mallory Park, and the VSCC short course hill climb from Prescott. There is also a report from the Royal Automobile (RAC) 1000 mile Trial. There were also plenty of Vintage Bentley automobiles at the Bentley Drivers Club (BDC) race meeting from Silverstone.

Coming up to date is a report from the British GT Championship from Brands Hatch, where Lamborghini Huracan battled it out against the Bentley Continental GT3, the Aston Martin Vantage GT3 and McLaren 570S GT4, plus Ginetta.

Something a little different from Donington Park. The Rainworth Skoda Dukeries Rally. The Donington Park circuit is turned in eight different rally stages, all off road and all tarmac. Classic rallying action for the iconic Ford Escort Mk 1 and Mk 2 against more modern rally cars like the Ford Fiesta WRC, Subaru WRC, Suzuki Swift, Alfa Romeo 33, Ford KA, Vauxhall Nova and even the classic Mini.

The British Hill Climb Championship is celebrating its 70th anniversary in 2017 and the double header meeting at Shelsley Walsh saw plenty of action and parades by former champions.

Finally, we have reports and photos from the Tewkesbury Classic Vehicle Festival, the Wythall Carnival Classic car show and the Dudley Classic Car Show.

Plus our usual News and other features.
