The VRCBC has always had a dedicated group of photo-journalists who never stop globe-trotting in order to provide us with the latest news from the world of Vintage motorsport.

Our most recent report has just been submitted by Ann Peters and Roger Salomon, who generously volunteered to attend both the Monaco Grand Prix Historique and the Villa d'Este 2018, so that the other VRCBC members wouldn't have to!

Thanks Ann and Roger; we are looking forward to your next assignment. [caption id="attachment_14107" align="aligncenter" width="450"] VRCBC correspondents always travel in style! This is the view from Ann and Roger's villa with one of their yachts at the dock in the background ........ or maybe not! 😉[/caption] Even motoring correspondents have to include a few 'touristy' photos.

VRCBC members are always travelling the world of motorsports and sending back reports for our web site. Our most recent reporters were Al Reid and Pierce Isaacs, who took part in an excursion to England in September, culminating in a visit to the great Goodwood Revival Meeting. They were ably supported by Steve Jones, a retired Lotus Seven Vintage racer from Calgary.

During this trip they visited: the Morgan Motor Company factory, the Cotswold Motoring Museum, the new Jaguar factory where the F-Type is made, the British Motor Museum, Desmond J, Smail Limited (Aston Martin specialists), the Aston Martin Works, the Williams F1 Museum, the National Motor Museum and of course, the Goodwood Revival weekend.

That was a lot to do and see in only eight days but our intrepid correspondents came through heroically, selecting the following photos (from hundreds) to illustrate their adventure for us.
