Classic Car Comment  Having now completed a most enjoyable 600-mile tour of Ireland and Wales in our 1954 Daimler Conquest, we can now pronounce it ‘fit for purpose‘ and look forward to planning a much longer trip, possibly three-up to Monte-Carlo next January, reliving the car‘s modicum of success in 1954.

Classic Car and Historic Motorsport from Retro-Speed Magazine 
  Daily news and image galleries from the world of classic rallying, historic motor racing, hill climbs, car trials, classic car shows, and major classic car and automobilia auctions.

Classic Motorsport Retro-Fact  The traditional Le Mans start of running to the cars was abandoned in 1970 because some drivers considered it dangerous, including Jacky Ickx who, in1969, blatantly ignored the rules and walked to his car. He still won the race.
