THAT MYSTERIOUS ALVIS IN the February issue we innocently published quite a lot of technicalities about an Alvis owned by Fenn-Wiggin and Swain in the belief that this car was the one which took C. M. Harvey to victory in the 1923 " 200 " at 93.29 m.p.h. and thus that a description of it would not only be of historic interest and of possible value to 12/50 Alvis tuners, but that it would serve to...

He was called Carlos, and some said he was from Brazil, others Spain. All I know about him is that his bidding number was 712 and his presence rather dominated the auction of motor racing memorabilia held by Sotheby's on February 26. His spending for the clay must have been into six figures, and anyone bidding against him had about as much hope as a boiled egg taking on a steamroller. As soon as...

Matters Of Moment

So Good Britain, we are constantly reminded, has "never had it so good" and although her production and transport are not infrequently disrupted by strikes and middle-class slaves in the proverbial black coats are still savagely over-taxed, in general this statement is true. It certainly seems true of the whole British motor firmament. Production figures soar, we have a Minister of Transport who...

Circuit impressions: Two Tigas and a Ralt

A menagerie at home on Goodwood Life is unfair. At short notice the amiable Tim Schenken, now a respectable retired racing driver, rang up and invited us to join a test day devoted to the Tiga products produced by the concern Schenken runs with another former racer, Howden Ganley. As an aside he mentioned that the Ralt RT3-Toyota that Tiga ran for Italian Daniele Albertin in the British series...

De Hane's half-hour

Henry de Hane Segrave took just 30 minutes to obliterate the previous land speed record and become the first driver to hit 200mph.Bill Boddy describes the least troubled record ever You have to go back 74 years for the first officially timed 200mph by a car. These days this pace is not uncommon, and even our trains manage 180mph when not colliding or leaving the rails. But in 1927 it was a...

It may not be motorsport for the purist, but I defy anyone to dismiss it as being dull 40,000 spectators at OuIton Park and nine participating manufacturers can't all be wrong.

Daimlers During The Vintage Years

The Editor Unravels Some History Relating to the Oldest British Motor-Car Manufacturer Introduction TWO years or so ago I wrote a history of the Armstrong Siddeley car for MOTOR SPORT and was gratified to find that, in spite of pessimistic predictions in many quarters that an historical review of such a staid make of car in the pages of this sporting journal would be badly received, the article...
