National Racing Review

It has been a year of development, controversy and near-peak excitement, rather than a season of out-and-out classic motor racing on the national club scene. On the whole grids have been full - in the majority of cases near to over-flowing - and competition has been keen and fierce. It is, perhaps, a sign of the slightly easier times in which we live that there appears to have been no dire...

FROM MEMORY it is difficult to recall a. Grand Prix paddock that had as much mechanical interest and new things as Kyalami had before the South African Grand Prix. There were two makes new to Grand Prix racing, new cars from five established builders, three new engine designs, and of the twenty-three cars entered fifteen of them were brand new and entering their first race. There were five...

29th Tourist Trophy race

Ferrari Beats Ford-Engined Opposition in Prototype Class A.C. Cobra-Fords 1-2-3 in GT category, beating the 250 GTO Ferraris The T.T. has never been certain what sort of race it is supposed to be. This year, at Goodwood, sponsored by the Gallaher Senior Service Group, it was over 130 laps, for sports and prototype sports cars over 1,600 c.c. and GT cars over 2,000 c.c. This promised well, with...

Letters from readers

Were you there? Sir, I am writing in the hope that you may help me in my quest to make contact with drivers, officials, marshals, mechanics and others who may remember a remarkable touring car race at the Silverstone British Empire Trophy in July 1961. While it rained on and off most of the day, the heavens opened at Stowe and Club during the touring car race. Minor rivers, inches deep, appeared...

Reflections on the G.P. de I'A.C.F.

It is strange how some circuits and organisers have to have at least one Formula One race before they can hold a World Championship Grand Prix, and yet the A.C. d'Auvergne held the Grand Prix of the Automobile Club of France on the Circuit of Charade near Clermont Ferrand without any preliminary Grand Prix event. The circuit was built in 1958, since when F.2, Junior, Sports car and G.T. races...

1975 British Grand Prix race report - Chaotic

  The British GP, for what it was worth, took place at Silverstone on Saturday, July 19th, in very unsettled weather conditions and had to be abandoned after 56 of the 67 laps had been run, not so much because of the torrential rain, but because there were so few of the competitors left on the track, the majority being tangled up in the catch-fences that now cover the run-off areas.

Lunch with... Alan Jones

Williams’ favourite son on dodgy campers, nightmare bosses and gelling with Frank and Patrick. By Simon Taylor Scroll down the roster of drivers who won a single World Championship – names like James Hunt and Jody Scheckter, Nigel Mansell and Damon Hill – and for each there’s a different reason why they never took a second title. In the case of Alan Jones, it’s probably down to the English...
