Heywood Statham, of a " Scuderia " he and his friends operated.—Edd MY brother and 1 were both fortunate in having our zest for speed and fast motor cars in some measure satisfied at an early age.

Miniatures news

I particularly like the Targa Florio P2 Alfa Romeo, No.60 in Grand Prix Models' Classic Cars series, and their J2 MG Midget with the original fixed-cycle-type mudguards (No.58). The former has the flat-radiator and the spare wheel correctly let into the tail of this modified Alfa Romeo P2 in which Acchille Varzi won the Targa Florio in 1930. It is very detailed, even to the external fuel-piping...

Under scrutiny: Sauber Mercedes

The star ascendant Thirty years after Daimler-Benz’s withdrawal from racing, the Mercedes name returned to Le Mans in 1985 associated with Peter Sauber’s World Endurance Championship contender.

Sunbeams at Wolverhampton

July 3rd THE annual rally ot the S.T.D. Register to Wolverhampton will never reacts the impressive proportions of one-make gatherings like the Rolls-Royce and Bentley assemblies or the invasion of Austin Sevens at Beaulieu.
