Penske targets Aussie V8 Series

Gordon Kirby As history proves, it’s very difficult to stay on top over a sustained period of time in motor racing. Few teams last many years, in fact, and even the most established and well financed endure weak periods. We’re seeing it these days with Ferrari and McLaren in Formula 1, and Roush-Fenway, Richard Childress and Richard Petty Motorsports in NASCAR. Yet Team Penske continues to roll...

Sprint silencer

Currently on test on the editorial Mini Minor is the new Sprint silencer manufactured by Rally Equipment Ltd., of Edgware Road. The silencer is made from heavy-gauge metal (being considerably heavier than the old unit which was removed) and is extremely well finished in gold stove enamel. The special feature of the unit is a balance pipe, which by-passes the silencer body, joining the main pipe...

Letters from readers

N.B. Opinions expressed are those of our Correspondents and Motor Sport does not necessarily associate itself with them. -- ED. *** Buy British Sir, I thought you might be interested to hear why I recently purchased a foreign car. At the beginning of April I had a four-year-old Triumph 2.5-litre Estate (power steering and automatic) which had only done 38,000 miles and was in excellent...

The Racing Cars of Jack Bartlett

Described to the Editor in a recent interview Before the war Jack Bartlett was well known in the sporting motoring circles as the London used-car dealer who supplied the better-class, properly turned-out, sports cars, from his premises at 27a Pembridge Villas, Notting Hill. Some very exciting machinery passed through his hands, and his clients numbered many famous racing personalities and fast...

Notes on the cars at Watkins Glen

The 31 cars in the superb Kendall Tech Centre at Watkins Glen included all 30 that had been resident at Mosport Park plus the Surtees TS14. Since Monza some work had been done to improve the fuel system and the brakes, and although Surtees did most of practice in it and Hailwoed tried it briefly, it was finally raced by Schenken who was making his last appearance for the team. All the T cars, at...

United colours of NASCAR NASCAR’s top teams have formed Race Team Alliance (RTA) to “explore common interests, reduce costs and collaborate on initiatives to promote and expand NASCAR”. Traditionally, NASCAR has always been firmly opposed to unions of drivers or team owners and RTA’s creation marks the first time in the series’ history that teams will be represented by a formal organisation.

Letter of the month Trying to tackle the wrong problem I read with interest of the idea to end the World Endurance Championship season at Le Mans. I fully understand the thinking, as the remainder of the season is something of an anti-climax. It didn’t used to be this way in the heyday of Group C, however.

Alfa Romeo 2600 Sprint

An original road test taken from the Motor Sport archives, November 1963By Bill Boddy Motor Sport certainly has waited a very long time to report on any Alfa Romeo, although I believe we did road-test a 22/90 model in 1927… Alfa Romeo describes the 2600 Sprint Saloon as “long awaited” and there is no denying that it is well worth the wait. It is beautifully made, technically exciting and...

>>Straight-talkin’ Petty >>Prost on the present >>Double points farce A step into the obscene?The F1 field heads for Turn One at Yas Marina, Abu Dhabi in 2013. When the sport returns in November, drivers will be contesting the first double-points finale in the world championship’s 65-season history – a detail that sits uncomfortably with many.
