Issigonis honoured

Alec Issigonis, Technical Director of the British Motor Corporation, to whom all who have fun in minibrics are indebted, was recently presented by the Carmen's Company of the City of London, with their Viva Shield, for "his contribution to getting ordinary folk mobile." Apparently his visit to receive this award from Mr. Frederick Cumber, Master of the Carmen, was the first time Issigonis had...

My Year's Motoring

The Editor looks back on the cars he drove in 1965 This annual review is intended as a refresher course for those readers who are interested in the good, bad, and indifferent aspects of the cars that came to us for road-test during the past twelve months. Consequently, it will not be a resume of the Good Life, as provided by D.S.J. last month. Nor do I claim to have toiled so hard at my motoring...

Road car: Mini

Riding on rubber for 10,000 miles All cars have rubber between hubs and road, of course, except those on iron tyres, which you only see in museums. This article, however, is about a car which is sprung on rubber, apart from that of its tyres --- in other words, the Morris Mini-Minor, the brilliant concept of Alec Issigonis, chief engineer of the British Motor Corporation. A great deal of praise...

Matters of Moment

Bravo Britain! The 1955 motor-racing season ended with two achievements over which Britain is perfectly justified in blowing her own trumpet. We refer to the outright victory of 23-year-old C. A. S. Brooks in a Connaught against the works Maseratis at Syracuse, and the capture of International Class c records at Montlhèry, including the coveted " hour,"by a Cooper-Climax running on pump fuel. At...

Earls Court 1963

This year's Motor Show has been one of the best ever as far as new models are concerned and the record crowds pouring into Earls Court has been an obvious reflection of the great activity in the Motor Industry. The popular newspapers talk about the "Star of the Show," and this year it must be the Rover 2000, which is a complete breakaway from previous Rover practice. As we found in our road-test...

Books for Christmas

[With the approach of winter and British motoring more savagely taxed than ever, solace will be sought in “fireside motoring” through the medium of books, of which a record flood of new titles has been released for the festive season. We are devoting more space than usual to reviews of some of the more outstanding of them in this issue, and another expanded book-reviews feature will be published...

Argentinian Motoring Scene

Reporting race meetings in the D. S. J. manner must be very satisfying for, with Europe as his base, not only can the Continental Correspondent be present at race meetings but he can also observe the general motoring scene in the area before and after the racing. With myself it is somewhat different, for I have to be back in the office, race report in hand, on Monday morning. Driving up from...

ON THE NEW FORMULA TWO WHEN 1IJE FIA ANNOUNCED THAT FORMULA JUNIOR would finish at the end of 1963 and be replaced by two formulae, one above and one below in technical standards to the existing Formula Junior, it seemed like a sound move. It meant that there would be two reasonable stepping stones up the ladder of single-seater racing to the pinnacle of Formula One. However, the detailed rules...

Rome G.P. (October 8th)

Rome G.P. (October 8th) THE Formula Two season closed for the year with the final round of the European F.2 Trophy held at the Vallelunga circuit some 25 miles north of Rome.
