VSCC Members Donate Generously at the Winter Driving Tests

The annual VSCC Medicals, which traditionally take place alongside our Winter Driving Tests attracted another stellar turnout this past weekend as no less than 70 of the Club’s racers took up the opportunity to have their MSA Race Licence medicals at St George’s Barracks near Bicester. A total of £5,775 was raised towards the three nominated charities Practical Action, the Army Benevolent Fund and Women for Women.
Our thanks as ever go to Dr Willy Sellers and his team of VSCC doctors as well as Duncan, Karin and Charlotte Ricketts who co-ordinated the administration on the day and our principle associates at Bonhams, who again kindly provided champagne for the prize draw.

The Driving Tests event proved yet another enjoyable day of VSCC competition with the additional numbers of the Medicals and Race & Speed Forum adding to an appropriately celebratory atmosphere for the end of the year. The usual eclectic line-up of cars were out in force for one last ‘hurrah’ for the season, in honour of Malcolm Elder’s last event as Clerk of the Course; amongst them, a bumper crop of younger VSCC members no doubt eager to hone their skills in this most introductory of motoring disciplines. A quartet of these young hotshots demonstrated their ability to the full, earning themselves class awards, including James Potter (Alvis), William Leith (Austin), Angus Frost (Austin) and Daniel Stanton-Wright (Humber). But it was left to some of the usual suspects to battle it out for overall honours. Frequent Driving Test champion, Edmund Burgess (Standard Sports-Cars) was the day’s victor in his Bugatti Brescia, just ahead of rival Mark Ballard in his Frazer Nash Falcon TT Rep whilst Clive Hamilton-Gould was the class of the Touring Cars in his Citroen A Tourer and Paul Compton showed the adaptability of his Wolseley Aerees Special, usually seen at the Club’s Sprints and Hill Climbs, topping the Modified Sports-Cars Class.

Members can now download Provisional Results and see photos from the day at the event page (CLICK HERE).

Our thanks go to Malcolm Elder for another fantastic event and his son Mark, who will take over the reins from next year, the officials and most notably the band of volunteer marshals who yet again braved the wintery conditions so that our competitors can enjoy themselves. As ever, our events could not take place without them.
