Classic Car Comment The VSCC must be congratulated yet again. Last weekend (12-13 October) around 130 cars celebrated 80 years of the Welsh Trial, still held in the hills surrounding the Radnorshire Arms in Presteigne. In March 1939 snow did it its best to disrupt proceedings but then, as now, members were not easily deterred and some 50 cars, many without windscreens, took part. Hardy bunch the VSCC.

Classic Motorsport Retro-Fact  Expecting instant success with the Corvette, in 1954 Chevrolet ramped up production to 3,640 units. Sadly, come the following spring, one third still remained unsold. They blamed the Ford Thunderbird, outselling the Corvette 23-1.
