An Australian Opinion On The "TD" M.G.

Sir, The announcement of the "TD" series M.G. breaks one of the last links between the Golden Era of the British sporting car, i.e., 1923 to 1938, and the present. Why the Nuffield Organisation sees fit to change the only type of wheel for a sports car, the Rudge wire centre-lock, for a chrome-plated soup plate is beyond me! Wherever one looks, however, the story is the same. When big combines...

The Private Teams

The names of Team Lotus, Cooper Cars, Owen Racing Organisation, etc. are household words, for they are constantly in the full glare of publicity. But what of the smaller teams and private owners, without whom there would be very little racing at all? In an effort to rectify the disproportionately small amount of publicity received by the small teams we have asked them a few questions about their...

THE TYRE WAR The important subject of tyres in modern motor racing formed the topic of D.S.J.'s article in his "Behind the Grand Prix Scene" series in the April issue of MOTOR SPORT. He described the dedication of the tyre companies' representatives and workers, who have to make the rubber function to the best possible effect during practice and the qualifying laps for a high place on the...

Continental Notes

Now that the Grand Prix season is over we can review the situation briefly, and no one will be displeased with Lotus-Cosworth and Graham Hill winning all the awards, no one, that is, apart from their main rivals. It was a fitting end to the season that Hill should win the World Championship by winning the last race, which was the Mexican G.P. (reported elsewhere in this issue by M.J.T.). When a...

50 Goodyear Wolverhampton 1927-1977

This year marks the half-century of the opening of a Goodyear tyre-plant in Wolverhampton and as this Company has an American parentage which makes more rubber goods than any other Company in the World and dominates Grand Prix motor-racing, I went recently, in the appropriately-Goodyear-shod Editorial BMW, to talk about 50 years of Goodyear in Britain. The Company was established here in 1913,...

Around and about

Comment on the racing and club scene This winter a large number of our readers have probably put their feet up for a Saturday afternoon of television and tuned into Rallycross. They have seen a variety of hotted-up and well-modified saloons tearing about racing circuits, sometimes on the track, sometimes on the infield, in some diabolical weather conditions. There have been Capris with four-wheel...

The sporting tyre makers

Pirelli: racing yesterday, rallying today with techniques for tomorrow As the astonishing publicity generated by their wall calendars fades into memories of 1974, Pirelli Ltd. in Britain have become one of the staunchest sporting supporters of all.

Front to back

Arriving just before the mid-engined British upstarts took centre-stage, Ferrari’s Dino 246 was the last front-engined GP winner By Doug Nye It all began – and in essence it all ended – thanks to the influence of Formula 2. It all goes back to the governing CSI’s decision to institute a new 1500cc unsupercharged Formula 2 class to take effect 50 years ago, in 1957. The new category was intended...
