N.B: Opinions expressed are those of our Correspondents and " Motor Sport" does not necessarily associate itself with them.—Ed. *** Ford Formula 1 engine Sir, I read everything you write with great interest and it is natural enough that I should express my unhappiness if we have given you— as we clearly have—the impression about the new Formula I engine, which comes through so clearly in your...

In Error

We regret that in referring last month to the Ford Motor Co.'s publication dealing with automatic transmissions we inadvertently said it was free to MOTOR SPORT readers. In fact, this book costs 6s. 6d. post free, from The Ford Motor Company Ltd., Warley, Brentwood, Essex. And those readers who have written to point out that a Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud III driver applies the handbrake with his or...

All in a year's work

In which the Deputy Editor reviews his 1979 motoring activities  It doesn't feel as if a year has passed since I last wrote this annual review, and looking back through my diary for this flash of time I wonder how I have managed to fit in the long list of cars driven, the countries and events visited, the production of 12 issues of this magazine and a semblance of relatively normal life as well....

Talleyran at Ford

A book that should please most children comes from Fords of Britain, called "Talleyran meets a Car Maker." It tells how a felt dog, with the most mobile of expressions, tours the Dagenham Factory. The pictures and story will appeal to the young-in-heart and photographers will be interested in the skill displayed in nearly 100 illustrations, toy dog posed on car and factory backgrounds. The book,...

V-E-V odds and ends

We remarked some time ago that the variety of unusual and sometimes exciting cars to he seen travelling from Lyndhurst towards Beaulieu must rival those that, in a past age, used the roads leading to Brooklands Track. Sure enough, driving down to the MMM in the latest Triumph GT6 for the unveiling by Lord Montagu of the Foundation Stone of his new £1 million Museum Complex, there on that winter...

Snake bite

As we rumbled along Vickers Drive, away from the apparently recession-proof bustle of Brooklands industrial Park, the passage of fresh February air across the cockpit of a 1992 AC Cobra threatened to blow away the magic. The spell had been cast by the astonishing quality of the fabrication work witnessed at AC Cars Ltd, and the potent legend that surrounds its most famous son, the Cobra. It's now...

Timo Makinen's tarmac-devoloped Escort Rs 1800

Timo Makinen's tarmac-developed Escort RS 1800 Since the introduction of the Escort in 1968, its sporting reputation has been carried by such a host of derivatives that it is sometimes hard, even for the factory, to see which way they are going! In the year that followed the introduction of the small Anglia successor, the Lotus twin overhead camshaft engine found a new home at the front of this...

The Amateur Census Sir, I read with dismay your warning that the amateur census was declining in favour of the registration number, as a schoolboy hobby. I determined to do my bit towards a revival. Thus, on the sunny afternoon of May 6th I was to be found on a busy stretch of the Barnet By-Pass, undertaking a thorough census. The results were very satisfying, being far superior to earlier...
