Matters of the Moment   The Retro-Speed Magazine-supported 2022 Cotswold Reunion Tour on 14 August is closing in fast. And, touch wood, weather-wise it‘s all looking good. For those wishing to make a weekend of it a special pre-event dinner with accommodation has also been arranged, and at the time of writing, one double room is still available. For more information contact Lin lin@retro-speed.co.uk.

Classic Motorsport Retro-Fact  The 1903 Motor Car Act abolished, once and for all, the countrywide 12mph speed limit. In return all cars for the first time in the UK, had to be officially registered, and all drivers had to apply for a driving licence. Swings and roundabouts.
