Comment   With our annual Retro-Speed magazine-sponsored Cotswold Economy Drive this weekend we are hard at it, printing road books, sorting menus and sending out final instructions. Luckily our myriad control and code boards, although 19-years-old, still look fresh. Question is; after the traditional pre-rally dinner, will bleary-eyed crews manage to find them en route?

Retro-Fact  On Thursday 13 March 1930 at 17.54 precisely, Woolf Barnato, along with co-driver Dale Bourne, departed Cannes in their Bentley, the objective to beat the Blue Train back to London. They easily won the 'challenge', arriving in St. James Street with the train still in France. However, although protesting that it was not an organised advertising stunt, the French authorities took a different view and Bentley, along with its ebullient chairman, were subsequently banned from the forthcoming Paris Motor Show.
