“We are often asked what is a light car. Like the female hippopotamus who was asked how to distinguish a male hippopotamus the answer was that one knows one when one sees one. In cases of doubt it should be, an unmodified vintage light car claiming less than 30 b.h.p. and not exceeding 1500cc both as advertised at birth. Edwardians at our events are not expected to take advantage of the Club modern tyre derogations. In both classes the overriding criterion is that the vehicle's performance is unlikely to give its owner much satisfaction in main club events. We make an exception to this in the case of cyclecars because we all like to watch them being mended and Trojans why they win main club trials is not generally understood. Any owner exceeding Management's expectation of his car's performance is expected to marshal next year” Arthur Jeddere-Fisher. President Emeritus.
