12th United States Grand Prix

Lotus come-back Watkins Glen, USA October 4th Transport from Canada for 24 of the 26 Formula One cars which had been seen at St. Jovite was provided by communal trucks, making quite a change from the gaily-painted transporters in which they are normally carried in Europe.

Motor Car Racing at Eaton Bray

On Whit Sunday the Eaton Bray Model Sportsdrome staged the first open model car race meeting in this country. The British Model Car Club timed attacks on the mile record over 25 laps of a 72-ft. cement track, and also staged a contest for best time of the day, over five laps.

Vintage Postbag

  Country 'Buses Sir, I was naturally most interested to read Mr. Roy Taylor's memories regarding Stoke-on-Trent 'buses during the 'twenties (MOTOR 'SPORT, September 1962) and, for the sake of the record, I have checked on some of the details.

They are part of a folio of work done by Margery Balfour-Browne, the daughter of a wealthy Scottish family who was plainly an enthusiast for the new sport of motoring.

The race of Champions

Wet and Interesting Brands Hatch, March 17th There was one bright spot in the wet and soggy day at Brands Hatch which overcame the gloom and squalor of the Kentish circuit at its worst, and it even tempered the overpowering smell of onions and hot-dogs. That moment was when Ickx drove round the outside of Lauda on Paddock Bend, the black and gold Lotus passing the red and white Ferrari on Lap 35...
