With the season in full swing there are full BHC reports from Harewood, Gurston, Shelsley and Doune, BSC reports from Blyton and Pembrey along with a round up of more than a dozen Sprint Leaders and HSA Speed events. Special reports are included of the Prescott Historique and the Kenny Allen memorial hillclimb at Doune.

Steve Wilkinson continues his series of now discontinued venues with his memories of Finlake and there is a photo feature of the Norman Foster automobile exhibition at the Guggenheim. Graham Blackwell reveals the latest developments, turning his Formula Ford Mygale Ecoboost into a British Sprint front runner and Steve Chaloner continues on his journey to eventually compete at St Ursanne.

Regular features from Andrew Dinner, Clive Wooster, Chris Bennett, Jerry Sturman and Paul Parker complete the issue along with book reviews and cars for sale.
