Silverstone yesterday for the VSCCís first race-day of the year was wonderful! There were at least nine Lancias there including Howard Morganís Lambda with its new very elegant blue and black paintwork and Nick Savageís Aprilia looking too modern to be in the pre-war car-park amongst more traditional pre-war designs. Parked by race-control were Mike Guestís Lambda, John Milhamís Augusta (now on Belna wheels) and Tony Stephenís B20 Ė all looking gorgeous in the sunshine. I counted four Fulvias including Doug Ellisís S1 Coupe, Don Macleodís S2 Sport 1600, my Zagato and a 1600HF that I hadnít seen before.

Although there were no Lancias racing there was one significant Lancia component that did grace the circuit. This was in the form of the Alta Norris Special from 1936. See the photos of this interesting Special with its 2 litre blown Alta engine and Lancia sliding pillar front suspension, which I think must have come from an Augusta. In its race it was outperformed by Bugatti and ERA, but it looked and sounded fantastic.
