Reports of Recent Events

Grand Prix De Bruxelles This Formula II (not "B" as some would have it) race was a battle between the G.P.-type Ferraris with the sports V12 2-litre engines installed, the 1,430-c.c. Simcas, the 2-litre Veritas cars and O. Moore's O.B.M. Moore made the fastest practice lap in the first session, in heavy rain, but retired in the race itself. The G.P. Ferrari chassis is apparently better suited to...

The Complete Works

The kind men at Aston Martin have designed a works-built 600bhp Vantage. Gavin Conway staps himself in for the ride of his life. Photographer Andrew Yeadon's eyes are better than most. They can hang an empty airfield with art, spot a water-streak on polished alloy, judge distance with millimetric accuracy. He knows exactly how far that oncoming, yellow HGV is from the nose of our Aston. So I...

Mexican Grand Prix

Mexico City, October 19th After a somewhat lean year of Formula One, Denis Hulme came to the fore in the final round of the 1969 World Championship series at Mexico City on October 19th. Driving a two-year-old works McLaren he beat Ickx's Brabham to the line after 65 laps of hard racing. Again the interesting and well appointed Magdalena Mixhuca circuit was in use and an enormous crowd was...

THE 1970 season of GP racing continues to be full of mechanical interest, and brightest star on the scene is undoubtedly the Lows 72, two of which made their debut in Spain. The Lotus 72 is entirely new and also breaks new ground in current Grand Prix car design, at a time when a design-doldrum was perilously near. It is the result of knowledge gained from the Lotus 49, the Indianapolis cars and...

Daytona Six-Hours

Ferrari foremost again Daytona, Florida, February 6th. For a number of years a rather unnecessarily long 24-hour event, this year following the recent FIA ruling, the organisers of the Daytona event decided to shorten their race to a more compact six hours and consequently it did at least prove exciting in parts. This event remained as the second round of the World Manufacturers' Sports Car...

The Dutch Grand Prix

A technical step forward Zandvoort, Holland, June 21st After a certain amount of alarm and despondency the Dutch organisers managed to raise the finance necessary to organise their Grand Prix, and, in fact, they did better than expected in that they could afford to take 20 starters according to the Geneva agreement of the Formula One constructors. They had 27 entries inscribed on their list, of...

Reflections in the Transvaal

It hardly seems possible that it was five years ago that I last visited South Africa, for the Grand Prix at the Kyalami Circuit, but it was indeed in 1970, so it was rather interesting to view the five-year span in Grand Prix racing, especially as regards who and what has changed. There were 23 starters in the 1970 race of whom a mere five were in the 1975 race, these being Ickx, Andretti,...

A SPECIAL GWYNNE EIGHT Smuch interest has been aroused by recent references in these pages to the Gwynne Eight, which shares with the " 808 " Talbot the distinction of being the only well-known vintage car of eight rated h.p., that some more notes, together with a description of the coupe example owned by the present Acting Editor of MOTOR SPORT, are published herewith. It is curious that...
