Does the Bugatti Trust have Photo Archive pictures of Type 35's and Type 37's?

I can find pictures of almost every other car, except for their grand prix cars, which seems unusual.

The UK VSCC recently requested information from the Bugatti Trust about the cast aluminium wheels used on Bugattis.

The letter sent by the Trust's curator is published on pages 24/5 of Newsletter 32 published in Autumn 2009.

What prompted this enquiry?

My guess is the protest that has been launched against one of its directors, a nineteen stone Welshman, who is being accused of using wheels made in America on his "35B" which are said to be non-standard.

Now everybody knows that all the serious racers use cars full of non-standard bits.
How else can a Brescia give 100 bhp without non-standard bits inside ?
I understand that the original Brescia team cars probably gave less than 40 bhp originally.

What I can't understand is why the VSCC and the UK BOC have allowed brand new cars made in the Argentine to run in the Williams Trophy race and how cars running plain bearing pressure-fed crankshafts can be described in the programme as type 35B, which, to the best of my knowledge always left Molsheim with a roller-bearing crank.

About four years ago I did ask the VSCC for a copy of the Williams Trophy regulations and was referred back to the BOC who in turn referred me back to the VSCC.
What I can't understand is how someone can be accused of contravening regulations when they have never been put into print.

And can someone explain to me how the Dixon Brooklands Riley (great car that it is) can be described as a pre-1934 GRAND PRIX CAR ?

this is something, I`ve often writen in this forum. all the rules of the VCC or the VSCC
the BoC and so on..... have been made up by self apointed "gods", " gurus" and
all kinds of people, mostly in great britain, who always think, that they are the only ones in the world to establish rules, which must be accepted by the "rest " of the world.
same as you can find in the recent discussion on the originality of a T35. mr. in the 8o`s conway said "yes", around 2ooo mr sewell said "no", maybe in ten years another will say " maybe"......
I wonder how much cars had been acceptedduring the last 15 years by the VSCC
which had been build by using an edwardian chassis with a high powered machine from airplanes of that time. these cars never existed. in the same way, they don`t allow speedsders made on lea francis etc. chassis ex fireengines....
the VCC has a long established " dating comitee", which is about to say if a car is eligable for the brighton run, which rises the value of a car , and there hab been many
troubles, from members from overseas, who had dated their cars at home, which was not accepted by the british comitee..........

so look out, not to have too much to do with them, it`s not worth worrying about

I could not agree more with you!
I also experienced the attitude to point to the BOC and in turn the BOC to VSCC when matters as Argentinian lookalikes participating in the Willams Trophy and the use of limited slip differentials was questioned.
Hardly any ´VSCC eligible´car is using the period correct wheel rim width size so why is it now time to investigate the Bugatti rims ? Ridiculous.
I am not a VSCC member anymore.
