June Newsletter 2022

I hope you have enjoyed seeing some of the recent writings which have appeared on my social platforms LinkedIn, Facebook and Instagram

The month of May saw the Benjafields Racing Club‘s trip to Monaco for the historic Grand Prix and the participation of our 1923 Bentley 3 Litre Tourist Trophy.  And once in Monaco, the opportunity to compete in the Grand Prix Historique de Monaco at the invitation of the Automobile Club de Monaco.

Then it was back to final design and indexing of my book,  The Past and The Spurious – The Case of Legitimacy in Historic Cars. I look forward to updating you next month with a publication date. 

Best wishes


A glorious sight – Leeds Castle and the gathering of W. O. Bentleys in readiness for the Barnato Tourto Monaco.

A well-earned rest as these exceptional cars arrive at the Chateau de Courban in Burgundy for an overnight stay.  Next stop – the Monaco Historic Grand Prix with the Connaught ALSR.
