Letters

Letter of the month Limiting factor The Japanese Grand Prix accident involving Jules Bianchi has raised many suggestions, ranging from stricter flag-waving to closed cockpits. The latter option, I believe, has its own dangers, particularly with regard to removing an injured driver from his car. The solution appears, to me at least, to be simple.

Reviews

Formula One Circuits From Above Bruce Jones In principle the idea is excellent: tap into the miracle of Google Earth to provide satellite imagery of the world’s classic racetracks, with explanatory footnotes detailing the finer points of each corner and scattered paragraphs outlining the great, the good and the successes they achieved locally. In parts this works well, but “legendary” seems an...

Collector Nick Mason

So you think you can tell heaven from hell? For the Pink Floyd drummer, his collection of30 cars is a celestial paradise. And who are we to argue? You’ll all wish you were here… Words: Andrew Frankel. Photography: Tim Kent At first it’s hard to know what to make of Nick Mason, rock star, racer and collector of quite extraordinary automobiles.

Originality!

Sir Re your May (p.478) speculations about Bugatti Type 35 "T", 131 A, now at Coys with a price tag of £275,500 attached to it. It is odd that nobody has thought to consult Alan Crisp about this car, for he knew more about it in modern times than almost anybody else, having owned it for twenty years from approximately 1967-87, when he sold it to Bill Lake, who passed it on to Hamish Moffatt, etc...
