Lunch with . . . David Coulthard

From catching Senna's eye at Williams, to crossing swords with Schumacher, to helping Red Bull earn its wings, DC's F1 achievements go far beyond the statistics By Simon Taylor Lets deal with the statistics first. David Coulthard's 13 Formula 1 victories never won him the world title, but he was runner-up in 2001, and took third place in the table no fewer than four times. In his 247 Grands Prix...

Around the houses

– RM Auctions – In its August 13-15 Sports and Classics of Monterey sale, RM has two historic Miller race cars going under the hammer. The first, a 1931 Miller V16, is the only such racer ever built and was placed 27th in that year’s Indianapolis 500. It then ran as high as third in the ’32 race before an oil line broke. In 1933 an accident claimed the lives of both driver Lester Spangler and...

Stirling Moss previews Earls Court

"Motor Show?" "Toughest circuit of them all!" "and it was a lot tougher in the Middle Ages when its likely they jousted at Earls Court. But it's still terribly demanding on the feet today!" What sort of show would you call it Stirling? "No revolutions. People have upped the power a bit, like Rootes—5-bearing crankshafts, more horses—but that's inevitable. Not the sort of show to make you go round...

A Ranelagh-Bodied ,yoo" Fiat THOSE who know of my admiration for the motor cars produced by our "co-belligerents "will appreciate with what pleasure I accepted an invitation from Geoffrey Battersby to inspect the then latest addition to his stable of a " 1,500" Fiat. This model is less well known than either the " 500 " or " 1,100 " cars, and is exceedingly interesting technically. The chassis...

GP Darracq is reborn

We referred recently to what could be a 1906 grand prix Darracq engine, now installed in a suitable chassis. As the celebrations for the first grand prix, in France in 1906, approach, the question arises of which type of Darracq this engine was originally installed in. The 1906 GP cars were of 12,711cc (170 x 140mm), but the engine in question has a bore of 180mm, suggesting it was from one of...

In Sunbeams, to Scotland

And in other cars as well... But read on Why Sunbeams? Why Scotland? I hasten to explain. In the 1920s it seems that whoever was then responsible for publicising the products of the Sunbeam Motor Car Company of Wolverhampton had the bright idea of asking the Leading motoring writers of the day to accompany him on the long journey to the Scottish Motor Show, which the weekly motoring journals were...

Supercars at the show

More than 50 new cars made their Earls Court debut at this year's London Motor Show, the last appearance of this British Motoring Bonanza in the capital before base is moved to Birmingham in 1978, so the SMM & T tell us. If the volume of new models sounds astonishing in these tight-pursed days, then the profusion of expensive supercars was utterly amazing. Telephone number-like prices filled...
