The Goodwood Revival meeting, held each September on the famous perimeter road of the former RAF Westhampnett Battle of Britain fighter base, is surely the biggest piece of theatre anywhere in our sport.

Cracking June Gurston

The events at Gurston Down at the weekend featured lots of cars, lots of variety and lots of hot competition. Both of the cluby one-dayers were over-subscribed and many regulars only got an entry to one or other day.

An Evening With Keith Shephard

Hot on the heels of their brilliant evening With David Gould back in November, Warminster Motor Club will be hosting another motorsport talk in February.

We have received the following from Steve Luscombe & Murray Wakeham:

“This is an advance notice to let you know that our next meeting will be on Tuesday February 21st, at “The George”, Longbridge Deverill as usual.
 
Warminster’s own engineering historian Keith Shephard will be talking to us about “The remarkable Mr John Alfred Prestwich and his JAP business”.
 
For those whose memories do not go back that far, JAP engines, based in Tottenham, North London, powered many competition motor-cycles, record breakers, and racing cars during the first 65 years of the twentieth century. Members will probably mainly associate them with 500cc Formula 3, Vee-twin hillclimb cars, and their famous speedway engine.
