Veteran to classic -- 40/50 Panhard Levassor

In the Grand Manner "Panhard and Levassor since the 'nineties' of the last century have been names to conjure with, and few cars throughout the whole of the Motor Industry have so high a reputation.

The Test That Went Wrong

The Test That Went Wro In the earlier days of motoring, car owners paid great attention to tyres. Punctures were frequent, skids dreaded, and the mileages obtainable from the covers of the pre-1914 era were very miserable indeed. No wonder there was endless controversy about which was the best equipment to invest in. Choice wasn't easy, with 31 different makes — and I mean makes, not types, of...

Veteran to classic -- Forgotten Journeys

A long time ago, when the Motor Sport offices were somewhat closer to the traffic-flow along the City Road than they are now, there existed a secondhand bookshop a few doors away. Browsing there, I came upon Self Portrait by Gilbert Frankau, which did not interest me until, glancing at a list of "Some of the People in the Story," I was astonished to find the names of SCH Davis, Sir Dehane...

Track test: Porsche track tests

A bit of fun "It's a bit of perverse fun, really" quipped AFN Porsche 928 S4 driver Tony Dron of his 1.43 ton mount in the BF Goodrich Porsche Club GB Championship.

Rally Review

Acropolis Events of the present are rarely without their counterparts from the past, and quite often one can recall from years gone by an incident almost identical with one of very recent origin.
