Matters of Moment

Terrible, Terrible . . . We live, unfortunately, in terrible times, with thousands-of-millions of pounds deemed necessary for protecting ourselves with nuclear weapons, blood being spilled on the streets of British cities (our sympathy goes out to the policemen who act so bravely during such riots), and unemployment approaching 3,000,000 in what still appears to be a moderately wealthy country....

The Peugeot 404

A very fully equipped, excellent all-round family car from a famous factory. Individuality allied to refined running an outstanding feature of this 1.6-litre saloon.  THE Peugeot 404, introduced last year as a companion to the firmly established 403 made by Peugeot Freres of Belfort, is generally a splendid car, offering exceptional value for money, but while it will entrance confirmed Peugeot...

The moneyman with soul

John Hogan has worked out of the limelight during his 40 years in Formula 1. But as the sponsor man from Marlboro, he wielded great power within the sport he loved Writer: Damien Smith, Photographer: Howard Simmons Recognise this guy? It would be quite understandable if you didn’t. Yet for the best part of 30 years, he was considered one of the most powerful and influential figures in the Formula...

Honda Civic GT & Civic CRX

Road impressions It is not often one is able to drive two cars which are identical in most important aspects and which seem so different, yet that was a recent pleasure when I had both of Honda’s performance Civic variants for a week apiece. They are not really so dissimilar, it’s more a question of perception and expectation. To give an example, engine noise in both cars starts to become...

Road test

The Lotus Esprit S2 Fast, fun and frenzied Since Colin Chapman first put spanner to nut in Hackney there have been few road cars available at any particular period in time to rival the Lotus for sheer exhilaration behind the wheel. The maestro's touch has inbred a unique agility of handling and performance in every road-going chassis. There have been inferior models, like the Renault-engined...

Letters from Readers

Sir I have been very interested in the recent correspondence which has appeared in your columns with regard to the H.R.G. It seems to me that this is a very overrated car. After all, the M.G. was doing 15 years ago what the H.R.G. is doing now. The 1,100-c.c. L- and K-type M.G.s were genuine 80-m.p.h. vehicles but the current H.R.G. 1,100 c.c. seems to have a 75 m.p.h. maximum. Fifteen years...

A rare Peugeot

Sir, Enclosed are several photos of a Peugeot Baby Sport Model 172BS that I recently restored to original condition. This is a 1924 model (the same year your publication was founded), with carrosserie by Genets and Pinell of Paris, and was originally finished in French racing blue. After a complete mechanical overhaul, during which time all moving parts of the engine, transmission and suspension...

Rally Review

A Threat to Road Rallies Before Britain’s Motor Clubs found themselves able to follow the example of the RAC by organising rallies which used special stages on forest and other private roads, there was no official British Rally Championship to speak of. There was such a series run by the RAC, but little thought went into it and compared with other, non-rallying, series it was very much a poor...

Chauffeur's Column

[My request that old chauffeurs with interesting driving careers behind them might get in touch with us, so that we might interview them for the purpose of recalling unusual cars they had in their care, the conditions appertaining to those days, when there was a decent relationship between employers and themselves, often extending over a lifetime, and when the cars they tended were valuable,...

Book reviews

Fifty Famous Motor Racesby Alan Henry. 224 pp. 11" x 7½". (Thorsons Publishing Group Ltd, Denington Estate, Wellingborough, Northamptonshire, NN8 2RQ. £16.95.)

Alan Henry has chosen races ranging from the 1935 German Grand Prix, when Nuvolari at his peak took victory for Alfa Romeo from under...
