Current Issue - Speedscene 198 May/June 2018

Issue 198 features a dramatic, Steve Kilvington, shot of Graham Blackwell's Mygale heading through Folly, Castle Combe - one of the fastest corners on any UK track.

Being the start of the season there is only one British round to report - the opening BSC event at Combe. However, there are four SBD HSA Speed Championship rounds covered - those at Combe, Rockingham, Aglesey and Loton and Between the Beams visits Gurston.

This is followed by an article looking at the FIA's Performance Factor initiative as a new way of defining classes and an update on Peter Hubbard's challenging V8 2 stroke project.

There is an interesting look back on 21 years of the Westfield speed series and John Brown delves into the archive of books about hillclimbing. The subject of this issue's 'Introducing......' featuer is Robin Webb, the Comp Sec at Shelsley Walsh, who reveals a rich and varied motor sports career.

The issue is completed by the regular columns from Clive Wooster, Jerry Sturman, Andrew Dinner, Chris Bennett, Paul Parker and a new feature - what was said in Speedscene this time thirty years ago.
