Rob Widdows

Desert warrior in village hall “Richard Noble is a legend. If only there were a few like him in government.” I quote from responses to our recent podcast with the man who, 30 years ago, became the fastest man on earth. On October 5 1983, Noble drove his Thrust 2 jet-powered car across the Black Rock desert in Nevada, clocked 633mph through the measured mile and put his name alongside the Cobbs...

Eric Brandon Wins at Brands Hatch

Eric Brandon Wins at Brands Hatch Cooper Still Supreme in Battle Against J.B.S. THE Brands Ilateh Stadium opened its season on April 8th with a Half-Litre C.C. Meeting, run in dry, cold weather before a big crowd. There is no denying that this close racing provides plenty of thrills and that at no other venue can such an excellent view of the racing be had. The spectators shout for their...

Piecing together the evidence

IN the May issue a correspondent asked for information about the Arab; Cyril Peacock, of Gwynne Eight fame, did likewise in 1937 and, several replies having come through, he thoughtfully sent them in for dispatch to the more recent enquirer. This has been done, but as the marque in question arouses more than a little interest, it seems worthwhile piecing the available evidence together and...

VETERAN SPECIALIST (Continued from the February issue) AFTER the Kent Messenger run in September. 1934, there was nothing until the "Brighton" in November. The 1903 Lanchester had been running solely on the low-tension magneto ignition, although a trembler coil and wipe H.T. ignition was fitted. Upton said that coil ignition was often fitted as an extra and was original, and that if we ran on...

Formula One: The Italian Grand Prix

Renault all the way Monza, Italy, September 13th In these rather unsettled days it was nice to get back to the Monza track, the true home of the Italian Grand Prix. It looks as though common sense is going to prevail over big business and the Italian Grand Prix is to stay at the Monza track, while the San Marino Grand Prix will be run at the new, and very satisfactory, Imola track. There were no...

Matters Of Moment

The Parliamentary Debate on the British Motor Industry Motor Sport has drawn attention on frequent occasions for the need for entirely new British cars of up-to-date design and appearance, backed by a foolproof spares service throughout the world, in order that our Motor Industry can combat the growing menace of foreign competition and the workers in Coventry, Birmingham, Luton, Oxford and...

Veteran Types - XXXVI

A 1909 Six-Cylinder Napier To the philosophically minded, the history of the six-cylinder engine over half a century must appear as a most curious illustration of the ebb and llow of human fortune, and incidentally, may add ammunition to the armoury of those who argue that no good thing ever reached the touring car which did not come out of the crucible of racing. For the six-cylinder engine,...

Six months with a Mazda RX7

Despite having been with us for nearly a quarter of a century, the rotary engine is still considered by laymen to be a new idea, not be trusted until thoroughly proved in use. Many motoring buffs, on the other hand, dismiss the rotary as another of those blind alleys which litter the history of the motor car The idea, which tire came to the public attention in the mid-sixties with the...

Monte Carlo Rally Bulletin

London, January, 23rd Before the rally started came news of roads snowed-up and the intensely cold weather threatened more snow to come. But conditions improved before January 22nd and the Glasgow contingent got away in good order, the first car flagged off by the Rt Hon The Lord Provost, Sir Victor Warren, from Blythswood Square, which, must now seem to the drivers so very far away ! The only...

There were quite a number of new cars in the pits for the British Grand Prix. Most notable was the Formula One Renault RS/01 described in the June issue of Motor Sport, though somewhat altered in outward appearance with an entirely new frontal treatment to the bodywork, with a chisel form rather than the original full-width "bluff" nose, and the power-unit being exposed rather than hidden under...
