Petrol is being more freely allocated than before, lubricating oil is still unrationed, the purchase of luxuries is only just becoming difficult, few of us have felt the effect of food rationing to any extent, and the roads are still very full of cars. Our shores are strongly defended, our Army, Navy and Air Force are fighting...

The man who would be Rex

He beat a works Auto Union and was offered a factory drive by Alfa. But Rex Mays preferred the intense buzz of American speedway.Joe Scalzo describes the short life of An Indy addict Tazio Nuvolari couldn't believe his eyes. Because he was Figlio del Diavolo — 'The Devil's Son'— Nuvolari knew a thing or two about getting moody with a grand prix car and sending one into impossible four-wheel...

SANCTIONS AND GRAND PRIX RACING The Italo-Abyssinian conflict—or should we say the difference of opinion between Italy and the League, as such—bids fair to jeopardise, among other things, the future of Grand Prix racing. Already Italy has cancelled certain sporting engagements with Sanction1st countries, and it is only logical to assume that a similar attitude will be adopted in regard to...

Car prices in Canada.

Sir, I have decided to write to you partly out of duty and equally so as a sports-car enthusiast. I enclose a copy of our Air Force magazine Vorair for which I run a motor column. You will notice an italicised paragraph at the commencement of the article which is of grave importance to the British Motor Industry.

Life in the RAFVR

Sir, The RAFVR was barely a year old when I received my first flying instruction at the De Havilland School of Flying (also known as No. 13 E & RFTS) at White Waltham, Maidenhead. We were taught on Tiger Moths (DH82A), but other Reserve Schools flew various types.

Of the foursome, the Calthorpe was the most sporting and racing-oriented make; the Clyno was covered in May's MOTOR SPORT.
