"Give them a big hand"

The Bean C.C., no matter how small its own membership, has a happy knack of enticing an excellent entry to its meetings. Its Second Summer Rally at Bracknell Sports Stadium on July 21st had something like 90 entries of veteran to p.v.t. cars if historic commercials and vintage motorcycles are included. The event had some unusual items—the excellent grass arena was not open to the public until...

By "Baladeur" It is really extraordinary, as I remarked in these columns recently, how late Italy was in getting going as a motor car producer. And almost more extraordinary, I might have added, that, in spite of the native genius which seems to inspire Italians when it comes to designing motor cars, they should, when production did at last begin, have tended so strongly to build to designs...

By "Baladeur" About twenty years ago I was rather intimately acquainted with a 1,500-c.c. Ceirano. It was rather a pretty car, with a 4-seater body and well-pronounced shoulder line from radiator to short, streamlined tail. The 4-cylinder engine had inclined push-rod-operated overhead valves and, one way and another, it followed the most up-to-date design of its day. But I do not remember that...

Drivers and...

Bobby Allison: stars & swipes

For more than 20 years he went fender to fender — and occasionally toe to toe — in racing's toughest gig: NASCAR. He scored 84 wins, but they came at a heavy personal cost. By Damien Smith Where do you start with a man like Bobby Allison? So many races, so many wins, cars, teams; the anecdotes, the laughter, the disappointments... the tragedy.

Should points mean prizes?

Sir, I have just read Paul T Hezzell-Moody's letter in your January issue, expressing the view that the World Championship should be based on number of wins rather than points. He is not the first person to express this view, but he and all the previous exponents have not explained why a wins system is superior to a points system, other than putting forward simplicity, fairness and ease of...
