2 C.V. Citroen's 100 Ascents Of Bwlch-Y-Groes

Air-cooling vindicated in R.A.C.-observed trial In 1925 the Rover Company was awarded the Dewar Trophy, that coveted award presented by Lord Dewar in 1906 to commemorate annually the most outstanding performance accomplished in Certified Trials observed by the R.A.C. They were awarded the Trophy in respect of an endurance feat undertaken by a 14/45 Rover saloon. This was the then new model...

Service Interval

Before the war he was an up-and-coming racer but hostilities drew Tony Rolt from Donington to Colditz. He returned a war hero on the verge of stardom. Phil Llewellin profiles his remarkable career May 1940 was a month of immense drama as General Heinz Guderian's tanks crossed the River Meuse near Sedan and brought blitzkrieg to northern France, thrusting a spearhead between the French army and...

Vintage Postbag

Lanchester versus Rolls-Royce Sir Your articles on "They Believed in Ghosts" and the R. R. Chauffeur's School were most interesting. The stupendous list of R.R maintenance items in the latter reminded me of a story told to me long ago by a member of the family of the last managing director of the old Lanchester company. A potential customer inquired of Rolls-Royce about the guarantee. He was told...

Rally Review The Lombard RAC Rally of Great Britain

Although it's potential as the final round of the 1977 World Rally Championship for Makes was negated when the major tussle of that series, between Fiat and Ford, was settled in favour of Fiat during the Tour of Corsica two weeks before, the Lombard RAC Rally of Great Britain was nevertheless the most significant rally of the series, largely because it attracted the greatest assembly of works...

Team Managers - Cesare Fiorio

No driver has truly conquered Formula One, sports cars and rallying, but one extraordinary manager made it look easy. John Davenport talks to Cesare Fiorio. When a rally driver does well racing, like Walter Rohrl in the DTM, or a racing driver does well at rallying, like Jim Clark on the RAC Rally, it is a source of wonder to all. A much more rare thing is to find a team manager who is fully...

Rally Review -- Swedish Rally

Spawn of the North Sandstrorms are inevitable in the Sahara; the Cook Straits will never be without their winds; and snow is a meteorological certainty during a Swedish winter. Each of those statements seems as logical as calling a leopard spotted, and it is almost incomprehensible that any of the locations mentioned should be without its associated climatic condition. Nevertheless, it is quite...

Alfa Romeo moves south

Naples to become the HQ For the past decade Alfa Romeo's Sud plant on the outskirts of Naples has been an embarrassment to the company, bedevilled by strikes, absenteeism and even violence. Today the mood has changed completely, to the extent that Alfa Romeo's finance and sales divisions have moved south as a prelude to the centre of operations being at the Pomigliano d'Arco plant instead of...

Cars I have owned

In which Norman D. Routledge writes mainly of war-time motoring and mostly of Riley and Alvis cars. – Ed. My ardent love of cars and fast motoring was born in me, and fostered by my father. In my youth I remember with pleasure many runs in an old Phoenix, a Saxon, Star and a 3-litre Vanden Plas Bentley owned by my father. The last I myself possessed for three brief months between father's decease...

Letters from readers

Sir, We have for a long time now been discussing the future of our Sport: "Motor Racing After the War." Well, there are a number of things that we must do. Taxation should be governed by the c.c. of the engine and not by bore alone. For, as we all know, the trend of design is for an engine of short stroke and as near as possible "square." We must try to get the ban lifted, so that we can race on...

Veteran to classic

Delage did it better! Some time back l analysed the luxury cars which manufacturers, expectant of postwar sales to the wealthy, put on the market just after the 1918 Armistice in an attempt to undermine the supremacy of the ageing 40/50hp Rolls-Royce. We looked at cars such as the Lanchester Forty, 40/50hp Napier, Parry Thomas-designed Leyland Eight, sleeve-valve Daimler 45 (forerunner of the...
