National Racing Review

It has been a year of development, controversy and near-peak excitement, rather than a season of out-and-out classic motor racing on the national club scene.

Sports Cars - BRM

A Fresh Start The history of British Racing Motors is essentially a story of hopes and heartbreaks in the world of Grand Prix racing, but the BRM marque was represented twice at Le Mans, in 1963 and again in 1965, using the Rover gas turbine engine, and will be again next year.

Home Rule for Mercedes

Continuing what now looks like a repeat whitewash of the World Sports Prototype Championship, the Sauber Mercedes team notched up another 1 —2 success at the Nürburgring in August. The Silk Cut Jaguars were fast and reliable, finishing in third and fourth places one lap behind, and Mark Blundell was "best of the rest" in a solo drive taking his Nissan to fifth place, three laps in arrears.
