N.B.—Opinions expressed are those of our Correspondents and MOTOR SPORT does not necessarily associate itself with them.—EdThe answer to inflation Sir, I wonder if you will allow me to give Mr. P. E.

Veteran to classic: Lancia Aurelia B20

Your flexible friend! From my viewpoint, the difficulty with enthusing over Classic cars is that cars change so quickly.

The 21st German Grand Prix

A Ferrari Walkover on the Avus Berlin, August 2nd As a result of various politieal and financial manoeuvres the German Grand Prix left the traditional Nurburgring this year and took place on the Avus track in West Berlin. Apart from the added complications of getting to West Berlin the move was not popular with drivers and entrants as the Avus track bears no resemblance at all to a Grand Prix...

B.M.C. introduce the Morris 1100

A front-drive 1,098-c.c. saloon with self-levelling rubber, all-round independent suspension and Lockheed disc front brakes, available in 4-door saloon form for less than £700 purchase tax paid.

Road Impressions -- Lancia Gamma Berlina and Gran Turismo

  Good in parts, particularly chassis behaviour, but lacking refinement The Lancia Gamma not only takes back Lancia into the prestige car market for the first time since the Flaminia, it also represents the current pinnacle of quality for the whole of the Fiat Group, discounting the specialised Ferrari arm. As such it takes over from the Fiat 130 saloon and coupé. Although production figures will...
