Motor Show Review

(NEC, October 18th) So, the Cavalcade concluded - incidentally, the Midland Motor Museum ran Wright's 1951 Frazer Nash in it as well as their Mercedes-Benz - my next task was to go to the NEC Motor Show, in satisfactorily multi-cylinder style in the glass-roofed Editorial Rover 3500 (it has recently been Skyported, of which more next month).

Californian hot

Bill Krause On his day he beat Moss, Gurney and Brabham. He was first to race an AC Cobra, and he had a F1 offer. So why haven't we heard of him? Willem Oosthoek explains Bill Krause had the potential to be a world-class race driver. Everybody thought so. Said so. Yet, beyond an ageing generation of Californian sportscar fans, his name is virtually unknown today. Bad luck, wrong choices (although...

Events of the Month

Daytona 500 Rarely does the Daytona 500 provide much in the way of predictions about the outcome of NASCAR's 36-round Sprint Cup championship. Run with power-sapping `restrictor plates', which keep the cars jammed together in a giant slipstreaming pack, the 500 is more a lottery than a motor race. Typically, there are more than a few multi-car accidents which inevitably eliminate some of the...

The Value of Competition Motoring

"Ford, which hasn't outsold Chevrolet since 1959, could regain the U.S. automobile sales-lead in 1966. Ford's victory at the 1965 Indianapolis race, participation in European racing, ventures onto U.S. dragstrips and repeated victories in stock-car competition, and publicity resulting there from, are some of the reasons why Ford may close the gap, 3.1% last year, 7.% in 1964, by which Chevrolet's...

And the battle’s coming to Britain soon By Rob Widdows The Pyrénées are hidden in heavy cloud. The rain is falling on Pau, ‘ville de soleil et de jardins’.

Continental Notes

IN spite of all the fuss and furore that the English raised over the past two years about the 1961-64 Formula for Grand Prix racing, it has now begun and is with us for the next four years. Various manufacturers who said "We won't support it" and drivers who said "We won't drive 11/2-litre cars " are still with us I am happy to say, and the racing scene is quite unchanged and is just as fast and...
