Notes On The Cars In The Mille Miglia

In the over-2-litre class the issue lay between Ferrari and Maserati, and the Maranello firm entered two 12-cylinder 3 1/2-litres as used in the Giro Sicilia, to be driven by Castellotti and Fangio, and two four-cylinder 3 1/2-litres, similar to the Sicily-winning car, to be driven by Musso and Collins. There were no radical changes to them, and only Collins carried a passenger, the others having...

That new car

Sir, I am surprised at Mr. Rogers: I am not very flexible but had no trouble in locating the jack on my Triumph Herald for a rear wheel change. No need to lie on one's belly. And what jack is he using anyway? The Herald normally comes with a mechanical (not hydraulic) jack which on my two Heralds was perfectly reliable. But I did complain about the lack of fuses when all the wiring failed...

Letters from Readers

The Amateur Census Sir, I read with dismay your warning that the amateur census was declining in favour of the registration number, as a schoolboy hobby. I determined to do my bit towards a revival. Thus, on the sunny afternoon of May 6th I was to be found on a busy stretch of the Barnet By-Pass, undertaking a thorough census. The results were very satisfying, being far superior to earlier...

The XXXIII Mille Miglia

A Personal Triumph for Castellotti In spite of popular alarums and excursions the Mille Miglia took place on April 28/29th in exactly the same form as past years, and the only differences in the route were two new by-pass roads: at Pineto, on the Adriatic coast, and San Quirico, shortly before Siena. Of the 427 entries, only 54 failed to turn up in the Piazza Vittoria in Brescia for the official...

The new Triumph TR4

SINCE they were first introduced in 1952, Triumph TR models have steadily consolidated their reputation as inexpensive sports cars notable for rugged reliability and modest petrol thirst, and over 80,000 have been sold, of which nearly 55,000 have gone to America. The TR3 is now superseded by the new TR4, which has the 2,138 c.c., 86/92 mm. engine developed originally for the Alpine Rally. This...

Factory "Running-in"

Sir, As a past employee of B.L. Triumph U.K. Ltd., I read the "Tale of a TR6" by the Assistant Editor with great interest. The products of the Coventry plant are, without doubt, well-engineered and excellent value for money. The faults which give rise to such frequent trouble should in no way be attributed to the design and development team who do an excellent job (albeit somewhat inefficiently...

Triumph Spitfire to Monaco

The smalll sports car used to be an item peculiar to British manufacturers, surprising enough when you think that the Europeans have the best of the summer weather, but now that Fiat and Honda have weighed in with cars in the 800-850-c.c. category, both B.M.C. and Triumph have moved up a class to under-1,300 c.c. The choice of a new "Spridget" or Mark III Spitfire was clear enough for a Spring...
