For some years now we have had Grand Prix races in Canada and the United States and they have been arranged to take place on consecutive weekends, sometimes the United States being first, sometimes...

Fragments on forgottten makes No 71: The New British

Readers of Motor Sport  are very co-operative in keeping me in touch with odd items of motoring history which appear from time to time in unexpected places. Thus we were recently sent a cutting from a paper with the splendid title of the Black Country Bugle dealing with the short-lived New British light-car. The paper had devoted nearly a page to this forgotten car but its Editor generously gave...

Veteran - Edwardian - Vintage

A Section Devoted to Old-Car Matters VCC Mid-Wales Spoke Rally (Sept. 17th-23rd) This rally, so-called because it took in daily tours spoking out in different directions from Llandrindod Wells, on every day except the Wednesday, which was rest-day, and the last Saturday when driving-tests were held in the new car park, had an entry of six veterans and 23 Edwardians, although two of the latter, a...

Munich Masterpiece

BMW introduce the 6-series coupe' For such an expensive car, BMW's trendsetting, six-cylinder, two-door coupe series, from 2.5CS to 3.0CSi and CSL, enjoyed extraordinary success, selling 45,000 examples, helped by its image as the touring car racing King of Europe. Production ended last December, rather prematurely we thought, until we were introduced to its 6-series successor in Munich and...

The things they say. . .

"Lord Ryder must believe in Father Christmas if he believes that his talk to Leyland's shop floor and management in Birmingham is going to ensure full protection and no strikes.",—Philip Turner in Motor last December, in a feature headed "Will the last Man out please switch off the lights!" * * * "Most Chrysler cars are worthy but fuddy-duddy, with a design emphasis on 'me-too-ism'.

THE R.A.C. RALLY ENT RI ES for the R.A.C. Rally closed on Monday, 5th February, with the record total of 400.
