Subjects for debate

Of recent months in these pages we have had Peter Hampton explaining to Mr. A. F. Brookes why he prefers Continental cars to British, and Mr. Brookes explaining that Hampton is barking up the wrong tree. This popular subject for debate invariably starts up that other happy business of vintage cars versus the moderns. So it has been in this instance, and we have duly received a screed which both...

Notes On The Cars At Monte Carlo

Ferrari had five cars for his team of drivers, Fangio, Castellotti, Musso, and Collins. They were all modified Lancias, three of them with the Syracuse body style where the pontoons merge into the body, and two with the Argentine layout. Mechanically the cars were unchanged from previous races, the V8 engines still using double-choke downdraught Solex carburetters. In view of the possible...

Rally Review

Canada and the USA In the space of one month the World Rally Championship has become more than a simple international series contested by various manufacturers; it has developed very quickly into a point of Italian national pride, not because of any international rivalry but due entirely to the fiercest of internal struggles the series has ever known. Until the Sanremo Rally, early in October,...

Ford and BRM’s alpine quest These two companies came close to scoring a much sought-after win with Vic Elford on the 1965 Alpine Rally, before disaster struck on the final stage Back in the 1960s international rallying received magnificent support from major manufacturers. Works cars were run by Alfa Romeo, BMC, Citroën, Ford, Lancia, the Rootes Group, Triumph, Volvo, sometimes Mercedes-Benz,...

Racing Drivers' Transport

When last month we published a news-item under this heading we did Mike Hawthorn a mild injustice, inasmuch as he was at the Easter Goodwood Meeting in a British car, in the form of one of Sir William Lyons' excellent 2.4-litre Jaguars, and wasn't using his Lancia. At Silverstone, for the Daily Express Meeting, Fangio was lent a 3-litre Lagonda by Mr. David Brown for use during his stay in...

Vintage Veerings

THE increase in the petrol tax can be said to have hit particularly hard at the vintage movement, because, although many old cars are distinctly economical for their engine size, most of them are lavish with the litres, and this, coupled with the unjust 25s. tax extracted for every rated horsepower, does make motoring in the better-known vintage sports cars an expensive business while Sir...

The Noise Nuisance Local inhabitants are wont to complain of unusual noises that they do not like and which they think ought to be stopped. Sometimes they have reason, and sometimes not. I believe that the Crystal Palace road-circuit would gain increased revenue if it were to be opened every week-day for testing and practice, as is the case at Brooklands. But as soon as racing commenced at the...

Rally Review

Swedish Rally The International Swedish Rally, the only real snow rally in the World Championship, ironically suffers a great deal at the hands of the weather. There are always doubts as to whether there will be enough snow to keep the forest tracks covered despite the biting of the tyres and to provide snowbanks sufficiently high and deep to provide protective cushions. In the weeks before this...

First non-Nordic driver to win

When the Safari Rally achieved world recognition and began to attract drivers from all over the globe, the visitors, even the most experienced and battle-hardened professionals found it very difficult indeed to beat the local crews. A special skill was required to do well on this event, and East African residents were so accustomed to local conditions and "reading the signs" that it was not until...
