Snapshots of Senna

Only a small number of journalists were allowed into Ayrton Senna’s world. Here, one of the favoured few recalls his early friendship – and final falling out – with the great BrazilianBy Mike Doodson One day, somebody will write a great full-length biography of Ayrton Senna da Silva. Let’s hope it won’t take the couple of centuries for that someone to compile the balanced, well-informed...

Veteran to classic -- 40/50 Panhard Levassor

In the Grand Manner "Panhard and Levassor since the 'nineties' of the last century have been names to conjure with, and few cars throughout the whole of the Motor Industry have so high a reputation. An inspection of the chassis at Olympia proves that they are built to last indefinitely and discloses several interesting points of design, for example the engine and the four-wheel brakes, which...

The Bentley Brains Trust

It was a happy thought on the part of Stanley Sedgwick, Secretary of the Bentley Drivers' Club, to form a "brains trust" of real Bentley celebrities, so that members might glean first-hand information relating to their cars. Under Question-Master Kenneth Horne he assembled W. O. Bentley himself, W/Cdr. Woolf Barnato, H. Kensington Moir, Lt. Col. Clive Gallop, L. C. McKenzie, and "Nobbie" Clark...

Reflections – Moss and Jenks’s record average speed run – An F1 deal, Schuey, and a pain in the neck… – Reasons for BMW to follow Honda out of F1 ’ll tell you something amazing,” said Stirling Moss. “Well, I thought it was amazing, anyway – for some reason I only realised the other week, and it absolutely staggered me…” We were chatting about May 1, 1955, which many regard as Stirling’s day of...

The opening round had almost been an embarrassment as the leading cars slowed, and then slowed some more to reach the finish line on their allocation of 510 litres, 15% less than last year's 600...

Editorial

I don't know about you but it seems entirely daft to me that the organisers of the historic race meetings that are popping up over Europe seem unable plan their events in such a way that their dates don't clash. I understand the season is only so long and that established meetings have less flexibility than the newcomers but, were I in charge of such an event, making sure my spectators weren't...

Royal College of Art Automotive Design Unit

There can be few products on the market in which design plays so overtly important a part as in the modern car. Every consumer durable comes into being as a result of some sort of design process, but the purchaser rarely chooses food mixers, for example, on the basis of looks.
