1961 Team Drivers

With several new racing teams in the field for 1961 there is likely to be a shortage of drivers and some of the top drivers have still not joined their 1961 team. Ferrari has only retained Phil Hill, von Trips and Ginther, indicating that perhaps he will not be racing sports cars, while Cliff Allison has joined the new United Dominions Trust/Laystall team as the number one driver. Stirling Moss...

The S.M.M.T. and the Vanwall

It is generally conceded that in not requesting a Vanwall G.P. car for exhibition at the Earls Court Motor Show the S.M.M.T. did the Wrong Thing. Mike Hawthorn, in his speech at the R.A.C. after the presentation made to him to commemorate his World Championship, thought so and so did Bob Gibson-Jarvie in his speech at the United Dominions Trust luncheon at Earls Court on the last day but one of...

The Racing Season Begins

As these words are being read cars are already practising for the first International races of the 1961 European season, for the Pau Grand Prix and the Easter Monday races at Goodwood. These two meetings will witness the first races to the new Grand Prix Formula, for although this new Formula took effect as from January 1st, 1961, the racing season in Europe is only just beginning. This Formula...

FINANCIAL TIMING SIR, Mr Samengo-Turner wrote an interesting letter about the Bowmaker and Yeoman Credit Racing teams and the origins of the 1962 Lola F 1 car. I am not sure, however, if Ken Gregory would go along with his claim that this 'was the same team that had come fourth in the world championship in 1960'. I willingly accept Yeoman Credit introduced the modern concept of outside...

Books for Xmas

Although motoring is now a seasonal occupation, there are days and nights when, for the next three months, motoring on paper is often preferable to motoring on the roads of this country! Consequently, Motor Sport has saved up reviews of recent motoring and aviation books for this December issue. Before reviewing these recent varied titles we propose briefly to suggest from amongst earlier books a...

II Bruxelles Grand Prix

A Ridiculous Event BRUXELLES, April 9th ONCE again the R.A.C. of Belgium and the newspaper Les Sports organised a Grand Prix on the Heysel circuit just to the north of the city near the Atomium. Last year's race was for F.2 cars and this year it was upgraded to F.1, though with the new Grand Prix Formula starting this year it meant the cars were still 1 1/2-litres, and many of the entry were the...

Continental notes

If all goes according to plan the European season of Grand Prix racing will start on March 11th with the Siracusa G.P. This well-known road-racing circuit in the far corner of Sicily is famous for many things, in particular the incredible Connaught victory in 1955, the terrific lap record set by Stirling Moss in the Vanwall in 1957, and the remarkable victory of Baghetti last year, when this...

The British Racing Partnership

The British Racing Partnership lasted just six seasons in Formula One before falling victim to its own success. Yet, as Robert Edwards reports, its legacy changed the face of the sport for ever When Alfred Moss and Ken Gregory chose Tony Robinson as the chief mechanic of their new enterprise, the grandly-named British Racing Partnership, thus neatly depriving Bruce Halford of the best mechanic he...
