In this issue , we have a look at the Classic Motor Show held at the NEC, near Birmingham. This annual event continues to draw in large numbers of car enthusiasts to view a large number of Vintage and Classic cars on display.

The circuit racing season is drawing to a close in the UK but we still have reports from the HSCC Championship Finals race meeting, The Birkett 6 Hour relay and the Walter Hayes Trophy from Silverstone. Also the BRSCC Oulton Park  Finals weekend, which featured the Volswagen Beetle Fun Cup series. The HSCC Championship finals weekend saw most of the Historic Sports Car Club categories in action, including the Derek Bell Trophy series for Formula 5000, Formula 2, Formula 1 and Formula Atlantic Cars. The Birkett 6 Hour relay from the 750 Motor Club saw 70 teams in action, in this relay event. Even BBC TV program TOP GEAR entered a team of three luxury cars, including a Rolls Royce, Bentley and Mercedes Benz. Finally, the Walter Hayes Trophy for Formula Ford cars saw some very close racing over the weekend, with the Historic Formula Ford final being one of the most exciting races seen in recent times. Five cars swapping for the lead for the entire race.

Although the circuit racing season is drawing to a close in the UK, we have the first two rounds of the Tasman Cup revival series from New Zealand for Formula 5000 cars.

Off circuit, we have a report from the Vintage Sports Car Club (VSCC) Cotswold Trial, which was held around the Prescott Hill Climb venue.
