Road Impressions of...

The Hexagon Elan Sprint and The Datsun 160B Of all the cars we have tested in recent months few have attracted anything like the attention of the Hexagon Elan Sprint Estate. Readers of Motor Sport may already have seen photographs of the car in our advertisement pages and we were keen to try this exciting vehicle for ourselves. We knew it was an exciting car simply because any normal Elan Sprint...

Chrysler Competitive

All set to add another chapter to Sunbeam's sporting history with help from the 16-valve Lotus engine "Last year nobody wanted to know about, or talk to, or drive for Chrysler. Now the World and his wife are beating on the door ... ringing on the telephone .... writing. They all want to drive a Sunbeam, and our job - after we have shown that we can produce an outright winning works car for Tony...

A two-horse race?

Last year it was Mansell chasing Senna. Will it be the other way round in 1992? Quintessentially, 1991 was a two-horse race, with Ayrton Senna winning seven Grands Prix to Nigel Mansell's five, Patrese supporting his team-mate with a brace of victories, and Berger and Piquet picking up but a win apiece. Who can forget the way in which the Brazilian won four straight victories as the season opened...

Favourable Impressions of an o.h.c. Saloon from Japan

Driving the Datsun 1600 It would be comforting, but exceedingly foolish, to ignore the challenge of the Japanese Motor Industry. Motor Sport has not gone out of its way to publicise such products, but has been prepared to commend the Honda 800S, while admitting disappointment over the Honda N360. I found the Mazda-Wankel 110S an extremely good sports car, but was much less impressed with a Mazda...

The hills are alive

Formula 1 tends to hog the headlines but you'll find parallel ingenuity elsewhere within our sport, and its provenance might just surprise you By Andrew Frankel We've all done it: imagined racing cars conceived in a world without rules. Gordon Murray has even sketched one for this very magazine. What is perhaps less well known is that they actually exist. Or as near as makes very little...

Fuji 1,000 Kms

Fuji 1,000 Kms Watson joins a winning team IT WAS third time lucky for John Watson as a member of the Rothmans-Porsche endurance team. At Spa in early September the Ulsterman was struggling to match the pace of his team-mates, certainly not helped by a 956 that didn't run properly all weekend. At Imola a fortnight later in the drivers' championship race the experimental twin-clutch gearbox failed...

Tuning topics

An honourable turn of speed from 998cc In the May issue we struck our first official acquaintance with Datsun's smallest offering in the UK, the 1-litre Cherry 100A. Although this Japanese machine is often compared to the Mini because of its transverse engine and f.w.d.—plus sundry other design similarities within the engines themselves—such talk is really rather wide off the mark, for the small...

The Datsun 260Z

A worthwhile improvement of the World's best-selling sports car. More flexibility and performance from 2.6 litres, excellent roadholding and handling —an exciting and practical 2-seater At the 1969 Tokyo Motor Show Nissan-Datsun revealed the hatchback, fixed-head 240Z and brought to an end BMC/British Leyland's halcyon days as supremos in the world of mass-production sports car manufacture....

National Racing Review

A shift in emphasis has probably been the most notable aspect of this year's national racing activities. Indeed, it is now tempting to inquire as to what our "national racing" activities actually are, for while the traditional corners of British motor racing have in the main continued to thrive, it has been the higher echelons of our home racing which have increasingly filled the very limited...
