Motor Show Review

(NEC, October 18th) So, the Cavalcade concluded - incidentally, the Midland Motor Museum ran Wright's 1951 Frazer Nash in it as well as their Mercedes-Benz - my next task was to go to the NEC Motor Show, in satisfactorily multi-cylinder style in the glass-roofed Editorial Rover 3500 (it has recently been Skyported, of which more next month). A press ticket did not enable one to park very near the...

Rally Review

Fiat Invincible Since last month's Rally Review was written, two events in the World Rally Championship have taken place, and before this issue of Motor Sport is published yet another will have gone by before the RAC Rally of Great Britain in November. By that time the World Rally Championship will have been Italian clinched by Fiat, for after the Sanremo Rally the Italian team's points total was...

A Model Lancia Lambda

Some time ago I referred to the beautifully made, finished, and detailed TOGI of Italy's model - it is to 1:23 scale and too large to be termed a miniature - of the 1750 Zagato Alfa Romeo. Now another of these fine models is available, to the same scale, and the equal of the splendid Alfa model in every way. It is of a 7th-Series Lancia Lambda torpedo, which you can have either with hood up or...

Rally Review

The Acropolis Rally There are eight qualifying events in the International Rally Championship for Constructors. The sixth of them was the Acropolis Rally organised by the Automobile and Touring Club of Greece during the last week in May. Prior to the Acropolis, Porsche was comfortably at the lead of the championship, Bjorn Waldegard having won three of the previous events in a 911S. Now, they are...

Argentina Rally

Strange how some rally teams tackle huge travelling distances in their strides and tend to fight shy of others. The New Zealand Rally, for instance, attracted respectable numbers from Europe, yet July's Argentina Rally drew only two professionally driven cars, and they only because Audi was keen to gather more World Championship points. Lancia, the German team's only real rival this year, decided...

Club news

750 Club The 750 Club meeting at the "Osterley" on May 3rd went over big, as usual, many useful contacts being made, much motoring conversation indulged in, and, best of all, George Monkhouse showed his inimitable films of Grand Prix racing of the 1935-38 period. There is no gainsaying the value of these meetings as a break from the monotony or excitement of war-effort existence, and everyone who...

Bo Hellberg: rallying Diplomat

Reason, sweet reason: we have recently been fortunate enough to meet the man who personifies the objective view in motorsport. Just as Sweden is known for its neutral stance, Saab Competitions Director Bosse "Bo" Hellberg seems to be the only one of the manufacturers' representatives from whom one can get an almost impartial report of the latest controversy. Naturally Bo is still conscious of his...

Rally Review -- Sanremo

Auriol at last Since the tortuous dirt roads in the mountains above the Riviera of the Flowers were all covered in spoilsport tarmac, the Sanremo Rally has never been an easy event for anyone. The rally has stages on both tarmac and dirt, which means that stocks of tyres, transmissions and suspensions all have to be doubled to cater for both surfaces, whilst test sessions also have to be...
