MORE FRONTENAC

MORE FRONTENAC [Last month H. L. Biggs gave some technical details of Frontenac Fords. A correspondent to " N.A.R.N.," the American Midget Car Racing Weekly, recently enquired whether early racing Chevrolets were" revamped" Model-T Fords or " Special " racing cars. In view of Biggs's article the reply may be of interest, and we accordingly reprint it from the January 22nd issue of the " National...

Rally Review - Corsica

Tragedy repeated in Corsica For the second year in succession tragedy has struck the Lancia team whilst competing in the Tour of Corsica. Last year Italian driver Attilio Bettega was killed when his Lancia Rally ditched and hit a tree. This year popular Finnish driver Henri Toivonen and his American-born Italian co-driver Sergio Cresto both died in a terrible accident when their Lancia Delta S4...

Red, white and blue

There were two red, white and blue cars in the World Sports-Prototype Championship paddock at Dijon-Prenois in May, both prepared in high-tech laboratories, but similarities seemed to end there. The Nissan R89C, designed and built by Eric Broadley, was obviously a state-of-the-art Group C car powered by Nissan, one of the world's leading motor companies, and would soon be an outright winner. What...

Wreckage and Restoration

Last month we published a full account of the 1903 Gordon Bennett Napier which has returned to Britain from the USA through the good offices of Lord Montagu of Beaulieu. The car has aroused much attention. Its history seems accurately documented, although the Curator of the National Motor Museum suggests that, after being rebuilt and rebodied following Earp's crash at Douglas during the Isle of...

My first race -- Ray Mallock

Formula Ford, SiIverstone, 1969  Racing was all I'd wanted to do since I was 10. I remember my father Arthur getting the traditional South Bank ovation after an 1172 Formula race at Brands Hatch. That was it; I had to be a racing driver. Dad agreed to go halves on one of his Mallock Mk9 Formula Fords. The cost was £469 all in, and the deal was that we would share the car. I was testing on the...

TVR of Blackpool

Motor Sport visits the seaside home of an individualistic, hand-built British Sports Car When Martin Lilley, then a director of TVR dealers Barnet Motor Company, rescued TVR from its umpteenth bankruptcy with the help of his father, Arthur, in 1965 there weren't many outsiders who would have given him much chance of avoiding the financial catastrophies suffered by his predecessors. Yet, ten years...

GB Napiers at Castle Rheban

Bob Montgomery of Co Meath, motoring journalist and former saloon-car champion, is writing a book about the 1903 Irish Gordon Bennett race and Jenatzy who won it for Mercedes, and is also compiling a script for a TV documentary on this historic event. Below he recalls some interesting links with that occasion, which became evident when Lord Montagu returned to the Napier team's HQ with the...

Letters from readers

Sir, I have been very interested in the recent letters re "Scuderia Impecuniosa." However, for me, the adjective lmpecuniosissima would be more appropriate! Nevertheless, I am a great Bugatti enthusiast. Soon after the war started I bought a very aged four-cylinder, 1,500 c.c. sixteen-valve model and after spending a lot of time thinking out improvements to give more urge, got only as far as...

The TVR 3000 M

Road Test Latest and best individualistic, hand built, glass fibre Sports car. We and others have often said that many modern cars are becoming too soft, spoilt by cocoons of padding, insulated from road feel by over-resilient springing and generally taking the enjoyment out of driving. Even mass-produced sports cars, once-upon-a-time an outlet for those who enjoyed cars for sheer driving...

Bi-motore burblings

I reckon that Rodney Felton did well to finish fifth in the Alfa Romeo Race in Tom Wheatcroft's rebuilt and rebodied Alfa Romeo Bi-motore at VSCC Donington, remembering how other drivers, up to the calibre of Nuvolari, the Senna of his day, disliked the handling characteristics of these twin-engined Alfas. It was a tribute to Rodney's enthusiasm for the marque that he was lent the car — mark you...
