Tyred and emotive

Sir, Your pictorial feature of Mike Hayward's Sights of the Sixties evoked strong memories of the most exciting period in British saloon car racing. I could almost smell the molten Dunlops from the battling works Mini Coopers at South Bank — but surely the driver captions were reversed. John Rhodes was the big extrovert, his attempts to reduce the understeer in his Mini often clouding it in tyre...

Our boys on the black stuff

Rarely have British Grand Prix drivers boasted more talent than today’s crop. We wanted to know what they thought of their home GP and sent Adam Cooper to ask the questions David Coulthard What's your first memory of the British Grand Prix as a spectator?

Motor racing is, and will always be, our raison d’etre, but for the ‘magazine that gave its name to the sport’ it has never been the results that matter, but how they’re achieved. Denis Jenkinson and Bill Boddy always looked beyond the race track for their stories, in a constant bid to keep abreast of progress. Thus we do today, as...

Being curious as to the sequence of cars Used, I wrote to her and she has kindly replied, saying that long before 1916 she was allowed to try her hands on what was a high two-seater controlled by a "...

My first race -- Ray Mallock

Formula Ford, SiIverstone, 1969  Racing was all I'd wanted to do since I was 10. I remember my father Arthur getting the traditional South Bank ovation after an 1172 Formula race at Brands Hatch.
