Turbo power struggle looms

The 2012 season is far from over and yet attention is already turning to 2014 and the return of the turbo to Grand Prix racing. And for most teams in the pitlane, the question of how much a supply of the new units will cost remains a thorny issue. At a time when even the better-financed outfits are exploring ways of keeping costs down, the timing of the new formula is unfortunate. In the current...

Matters of moment

The trend of design At the commencement of another year it is encouraging to discover that some of the past pessimism is dispersing. The flow of oil which we were told would soon cease to come from beneath the surface of this exhausted planet has refused to dry-up, no doubt to the disgust of the Media and other Jeremiahs, so, if you can afford it, there is plenty of petrol to burn. The emission...

Racing car evolution part II: 1909-1916

In the issue of March, 1942, we published a long article by Cecil Clutton dealing with racing car evolution between 1895 and 1908. This contribution was so very well received that it occurred to us to continue this account of the development of the racing car down the years. Articles of this nature involve an immense amount of thought and research, and the author of the original was quite unable...

A love of engineering

To most of us Cosworth means motor racing. But now it’s applying its engineering skills to wider fields – and seas, and skies...

Jaguar makes leap into Grand Prix arena

The lid was lifted on the worst kept secret in Formula One last month when Jaguar chairman Dr Wolfgang Reitzle announced that the recently purchased Stewart Grand Prix team would be rebranded Jaguar Racing for the 2000 World Championship. The decision to enter Formula One was taken according to Reitzle as a way "to promote a wider global recognition of the Jaguar brand" although it will not have...

Containent@L notez and. New

By HAROLD NOCKOLDS Rumours and Reports With racing season practically finished, we now start the annual game of saying that so-and-so will drive such-andsuch a car next year—and contradicting it in the following issue. Caracciola was said to be retiring at the end of this season, but as it happens he is one of the few drivers whose plans are already decided. He has renewed his contract with...

The Midland Motor Museum

The Bob Roberts/Michael Barker Sports Car Collection at Bridgnorth Motor museums are springing up around this green and pleasant land rather like motoring mushrooms. Last January Motor Sport described the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu, we have dealt from time to time with the splendid collection of racing cars at Tom Wheatcroft's Donington Museum, and we covered the Stratford Motor Museum in...

Power at the wheels

A reader in Sweden has sent us the table reproduced below, which indicates power loss through car transmission systems. In the first column is the power output claimed by the manufacturers in D.I.N. b.h.p., in the second column is the power obtained at the driving wheels, and the third column shows the percentage efficiency. Presumably these power outputs at the driving wheels were obtained on a...

Matters of Moment

Showtime Soliloquy About this time last year we remarked that you could have the Soliloquy but not the Motor Show, for after a very long run the Earls Court Exhibition in London had come to an end. This year you can have both, because a Brave New Show has been held at the vast complex of the National Exhibition Centre on the outskirts of Birmingham, standing in an area greater than that of London...

The 2.6 Alfa Romeo

Sir, You could have knocked me down with the proverbial feather when, on purchasing my regular copy of Motor Sport in November, I discovered your road test report on the Alfa Romeo 2600 Sprint. We owners are, I imagine, a relatively small band, and I, for one, scarcely expected to read any road-test report anywhere, particularly since I don't read Italian. To find one in the best of magazines is...
