American Comment

THE 1969 Can-Am series has been completed and despite all the dire forecasts by the prophets of doom there now seems little doubt that it was a success. It is true that the series was completely monopolised by the McLaren team, with McLaren scoring six wins to Hulme's five and the pair of them finishing first and second in all but three of the eleven races.

48th French Grand Prix

A Race of Surprises Rouen-Les Essarts, July 8th. Every five years the Grand Prix de l'A.C.F. leaves the Reims circuit and is held at Rouen-Les-Essarts, having done so in 1952, 1957 and now in 1962.

It is strange how some circuits and organisers have to have at least one Formula One race before they can hold a World Championship Grand Prix, and yet the A.C. d'Auvergne held the Grand Prix of the Automobile Club of France on the Circuit of Charade near Clermont Ferrand without any preliminary Grand Prix event. The circuit was built in 1958, since when F.2, Junior, Sports car and G.T. races...

Racing Notes

As these words are being read the South African G.P. will be taking place, this year at the Kyalami circuit and not at the usual East London one. (A full report will appear in February Motor Sport.) As the event is in the World Championship series this year, many teams have had to get organised very quickly, and there have been some interesting changes. Biggest surprise was Graham Hill leaving...

The A.D.A.C. 1,000-Kilometre Race - Nurburgring

Moss the Absolute Master Adenau, June 7th. When the cars and drivers began arriving at the Nurburgring the day before practice commenced, the Eifel countryside was looking its best, bathed in warm sunshine, and even those people who hate the fantastic circuit and loathe the 1,000-kilometre sports-car race, could not help being in a good mood. As previous reports in Motor Sport have pointed out,...
