That Great Little Man Freddie Dixon

Having recalled recently the careers of some well-known British racing drivers, the time is overdue to include Freddie Dixon. Born in 1892, Frederick William Dixon had already deservedly achieved fame in the motorcycle racing field, before he turned to car racing. Starting in 1909, he had won two 7 races, established records innumerable, ridden with great distinction at Brooklands, where he was...

FOUR 200—MILE SOLO RACES. DURING the morning, when the 250 c.c. and 350 c?c. races were run, severe rainfall rendered the conditions decidedly uncomfortable for man and machine, but, nevertheless, in these two classes the percentage of reliability was far higher than in the two larger classes, which were blessed with fine weather. At 10 o'clock, the two smaller classes were dispatched on their 73...

Fragments of Forgotten Makes

No. 16: Angus-Sanderson On the way to Scotland last year for the R.A.C. Rally, I took the opportunity of stopping in Newcastle to call on Mr. T. C. H. Sanderson, a wine importer, whose late father was responsible for building the Angus-Sanderson car in that city. The idea of going into motor-car manufacture was conceived by the firm of Sir Wm. Angus, Sanderson and Co., to expand their...

Continental notes

I must start this month's notes with a postscript to my remarks in the last issue of Motor Sport concerning a certain 2-litre Porsche Carrera that became unstable at speeds of over 115 m.p.h. due to the tyres that were fitted. On the way to the Austrian Grand Prix I called in at Zuffenhausen, and noticed that this self-same car had been fitted with a set of Dunlop SP tyres since my criticism. I...

73 CARS I HAVE OWNED VERY early in life I developed an interest in motoring and well rtiitnJ)(-I first experiments in this direction. In 1919, or maybe it was 1920, my father decided to enter the field of private owners. He purchased, at an exorbitant figure, an ex-W.D. Douglas Combination, upon which, at the tender age of eleven, I was wont to ride illegally whenever opportunity offered....

Matters of moment

Given all the fuss about Rolls-Royce and Bentley right now, you'd be forgiven for not noticing that automotive GBH is already being committed on the name of one of our most proud and innovative marques. Have you seen the brand new Rover-BRM? If not you should know that it is neither gas-turbine powered nor likely to be competing at Le Mans any time soon. This Rover-BRM is an entirely unremarkable...

B.M.C.R.C. CHAMPIONSHIP MEETING. BROOKLANDS is as equally unbearable on a hot day as on a cold day, but on October the tenth the gods indeed smiled, for perfect conditions prevailed at the track. Plenty of really fast work was to be seen, but in spite of this no really thrilling finishes occurred. Le Vack had a field day, carrying off the 250, 350 and 500 c.c. championships and breaking the 10...

Lunch with... Jo Ramirez

The personable Mexican looks back over 40 years of Formula 1 glories and struggles, friendships and tragedies By Simon Taylor The problem is, lunch isn’t long enough. Over 40 seasons, this man has been friend and confidant to a succession of F1 heroes, helped them celebrate their victories and, too often, mourned their loss. He was inside Ferrari when it was Enzo’s fiefdom, with Tyrrell when Ken’...

SPORTING EVENTS OF THE MONTH. LONDON'S FIRST ROAD RACE. Exciting Events at the Crystal Palace. IN,M . EROUS corners of varying "fastness ", several hairpins, ascents, descents and an almost uniformly loose surface enabled a large crowd of spectators to see some hair-raising sport at speeds which were never higher than 30 m.p.h. for the mile lap. It is possible that some riders attained nearly 55...
