Goodwood TT update

A brace of wire-wheeled Ferrari 250LMs, driven by Le Mans winners Richard Attwood and Jackie Oliver and John Surtees/ David Piper will head a sensational entry for the RAC Tourist Trophy Celebration, centrepiece of Goodwood's Revival on September 15-17.

Book Reviews

"Great Mysteries of the Air," by Ralph Barker. 211 pp. 8 in. x 5 3/8 in. (Chatto & Windus, 40 William IV Street, London, W.C.2. 25s.) Having criticised books like Robert Daly's "The Cruel Sport" because they harp on motor racing's dangers and fatal accidents, I should condemn this book about record-breaking, Civil and Service, aeroplanes which failed to return. But the author writes...

Lancashire hot shot

The name of Chevron is so familiar that it's almost a surprise to remember that it was a major manufacturer only for about 12 years. The car that put the company on the map was the B8, still highly successful in Historic racing. The main force behind Chevron was one man: Derek Bennett, who first made his reputation as a midget racer on Northern speedway tracks during the 1950s. He was a fine...

Bank Holiday Brands—September 3rd

Traditionally the Summer Bank Holiday meeting at Brands Hatch features powerful cars, and this year, after an apparently unsuccessful attempt with Formula Two in 1967, the organisers plumped for Group 4 with a huge supporting cast of Formula Three and saloon cars. The race carried added interest as it was the final and deciding round of the season-long R.A.C. Sports Car Championship. Prior to the...

The 1,000 Kilometers of Francorchamps

A Nice Race Spa, Belgium, May 7th In spite of the attempts of World Championship Grand Prix driver Jackie Stewart to sabotage the event (see Continental Notes) the 1,000 kilometre sports-car race of Spa-Franchorchamps took place in a pleasant, friendly atmosphere, unsullied by avarice, sponsorship wrangles, trade union activities or boycotts. The result was a very nice day, a win for Ferrari, and...

The Austrian 1000 Kilometres

A Ferrari Grand Slam Osterreichring, Zeltweg, June 25th Rumours before the event suggested that this year's 1,000-kilometre sports car race on the mountainous Osterreichring might prove to be the most interesting event of 1972. Having won every race in which they have taken part this year, the Ferrari team were out in force with four entries, and Alfa Romeo were confident that their new 12-...

Brian Redman One evening, several years ago, and over a degustivo or two, Jenks was reminiscing about the Mille Miglia. "I've often thought," he said, "what fun it would have been to do it in a Porsche 917." Driven by whom? I asked. Rodriguez? Siffert? "No, no," he replied. "Given a choice, I'd have chosen Brian' Redman. He was as every bit as quick as they were, and far more intelligent. With...
