An Afternoon with an Aston Martin DB3S

The Deputy Editor airs the Midlands Motor Museum's Works Team car When I announced to a couple of Aston Martin enthusiast friends that I was to drive an Aston Martin DB3S - an ex Team car at that - they said knowledgeably: "A better car on the road than the circuit, you know." They may well be right, for the DB3S was less highly strung than some of its thoroughbred sports/racing contemporaries,...

'Small fry' sports race heads refreshed Revival programme

Smaller-engined sports-racing cars of the 1950s will be one of the key new features for the Revival Meeting in early September.

In the hot seat

Le Mans was just another race to Roy Salvadori. Blessed with the fastest name this side of the Channel, this true Brit loves Goodwood, but says that Ferrari is in his blood... Were you using the same settings as John Surtees in the Yeoman Credit Coopers during 1961? Eric Perrin, Geneva, Switzerland I wanted to stay on the factory settings.

Bouley Bay The jersey M.C. and L.C.C.'s Hill-Climb event on July 27th enticed a large number of competitors from the mainland.

The king they never crowned. Life, for Stirling Moss, continues at 150 mph, a series of bends and obstacles to be taken at maximum throttle. But instead of balancing a Maserati 250F, a Vanwall, a Cooper or a Lotus in a delicate four-wheel drift, now he balances the rigours of a hectic schedule of business activities with the same commitment that he brought to his racing. In his heyday he was the...

Around and about

Auction Sale WE recently had occasion to look in on an auction sale of old cars, ranging from a veteran to cars that only recently became obsolete and out of production.

A rather blatant...
