Rally review

Toughest of them all The Liège If you were to ask Peter Hughes and Mike Armstrong which was most difficult, the East African Safari or the Liège-Sofia-Liège, the answer might be a straightforward vote for the Liège or a rather sheepish grin. The reason is that whereas Mike and Peter finished third and first in works Cortina GTs on the Safari neither they nor any of the other works Fords -finished...

Bo Hellberg: rallying Diplomat

Reason, sweet reason: we have recently been fortunate enough to meet the man who personifies the objective view in motorsport. Just as Sweden is known for its neutral stance, Saab Competitions Director Bosse "Bo" Hellberg seems to be the only one of the manufacturers' representatives from whom one can get an almost impartial report of the latest controversy. Naturally Bo is still conscious of his...

The Spanish Grand Prix

 Lotus annihilate the opposition Jarama, June 4th Just as the Belgian GP I reported elsewhere in this issue has sunk to a steady low at the Zolder circuit, the Spanish GP has done a similar thing at the twisty little Jarama circuit, out in the country to the north of Madrid. It is not the sort of circuit on which memorable high-speed driving can be seen, nor much in the way of wheel-to-wheel...

(Motor Racing Publications, 28 Devonshire Road, London W4 2HD £5.45) One would be justified in saying that the writing of books about the Morgan has been somewhat overdone, fascinating as is the subject.

Formula One scene

When I go to a Formula One Grand Prix, in order to make a comprehensive report for Motor Sport, it can involve as many as seven days during which Formula One cars, drivers, races and overall activity are foremost in my mind. Of all the things I see, hear about, discuss or just think about, during that time, only 10 per cent gets into print, the other 90 per cent are stored away to build up a...
