The VSCC held its regular New-Year driving tests at Brooklands on 27 January 2019.

There was only a single Lea-Francis competing; the J-Type of Tobias Bruce. It is becoming more and more unusual to see these earlier models of Lea-Francis competing in events, so it is good to see this well known LFOC car being used this way.

The Vintage Sports Car Club’s Longstone Speed Championship Trophy is awarded for the person scoring the most points in speed events (sprints and hill-climbs) in a car driven to the events at which it competes. The trophy for the 2018 season has been won by the LFOC Editor and pre 1937 Registrar, Colin Poynter with his S-Type, a 1928 Works TT car, which has been driven on the road to every event in which it has competed in its 90 years.
