With Moss in the Mille Miglia

On May 1st motor-racing history was made, for Stirling Moss won the 1,000-mile Mile Miglia, the first time in twenty-two years that this has been achieved by a British driver, and I had the very great privilege of sitting beside him throughout this epic drive. But let us go back to the beginning, for this win was not a fluke on the spur of the moment, it was the result of weeks, even months, of...

Mercedes Mysteries

We have become accustomed to the saying that every other Bugatti was owned at some time by Malcom Campbell and that any 250F Maserati is apt to have been driven by Fangio. This tendency to exaggeration isn't new. As far back as 1903 the Mercedes Sixty with which Jenatzy won the Gordon Bennett race over the Athy course in Ireland became a coveted car, because of the "Red Devil"s spirited driving...

Sideslips

by "Baladeur" A correspondent who is apparently a persistent follower of these sideslips reminds me that I have outstanding a promise to discourse upon Serpollet road steamers. Well, that is a promise which I am only too willing to redeem. Ever since I first saw that marvellous photograph of the start of Leon Serpollet's trip to Lyons in January, 1890, originally published, I believe, in La...

It wasn't only on race-days, either. At one time I was there daily, travelling down by train, on journalistic pursuits, and before that I had enjoyed other non-race...

A PIONEER IN THE SCIENTIFIC TESTING OF AUTOMOBILES

A PIONEER IN THE SCIENTIFIC TESTING OF AUTOMOBILES Cecil Clutton writes-up a remarkable book, which is of great interest to students of Edwardian performance, and which, even to-day, shows car-testing in a new light. II' is maddeningly difficult to obtain any definite figures about the per formance of early automobiles. Of course, if you don't happen to feel the need of this sort of irformation...

Bill Boddy

Mercs' first return to Britain The great interest aroused by seeing or reading about demonstrations of historic GP cars was amply confirmed by Motor Sport's world exclusive in the December 2003 issue of the drive at Donington by the editor in the 1939 D-type Auto-Union. I was reminded of how, back in 1958, the VSCC managed to have demonstrations at Oulton Park during its Richard Seaman Race...

Paris — Bordeaux

by "Baladeur"(Continued from the June issue.) "The start of Paris — Madrid — it is a wonderful picture. Up at the line the busy officials sending off the cars one after the other, the general hubbub cut by the level voice of the timekeeper counting off the remaining seconds to the driver, who leans over to catch the words. Behind him engines running, cutting in and out with a penetrating...
