The moneyman with soul

John Hogan has worked out of the limelight during his 40 years in Formula 1. But as the sponsor man from Marlboro, he wielded great power within the sport he loved Writer: Damien Smith, Photographer: Howard Simmons Recognise this guy? It would be quite understandable if you didn’t. Yet for the best part of 30 years, he was considered one of the most powerful and influential figures in the Formula...

Chauffeur's Column

[My request that old chauffeurs with interesting driving careers behind them might get in touch with us, so that we might interview them for the purpose of recalling unusual cars they had in their care, the conditions appertaining to those days, when there was a decent relationship between employers and themselves, often extending over a lifetime, and when the cars they tended were valuable,...

Corrections

W.B. says he is well aware that Peter Morley is the owner and driver of the Bentley-Napier in VSCC events but he did not write the caption on page 854 last month, and he wishes to say that, due to a transcription error, it was wrongly inferred, on page 850, that Mr A. J. Stevens went into the Army when he was too young to do so. Infact, he was too young; it was his Stevens motorcycle which served...

Grote Prijs van Belgie

-- Ferrari fight backZolder, April 29th When the Belgian Grand Prix returned to the Spa-Francorchamps circuit last year, everyone was delighted and full of enthusiasm for a real Grand Prix de Belgique and the general feeling was that there need be no further discussion; the Belgian race was back at its rightful home and there it would stay. However, those who thought that overlooked one small...

Greene Cars

Only two Gilbys were ever built, an 1,100 cc sports car and a 1½-litre F1 car. Both were well designed, attractive, and prepared to the highest standards, yet in terms of absolute success, they merit no more than a footnote in motor racing history. What the project represented, though, is much more important. They were among the very last cars to be built and raced by a privateer with the object...

Remembered for the wrong thing

The name Brabazon is often associated with an aircraft that no-one bought, but this pioneer had much to boast of Lord Brabazon of Tara was a most remarkable man who had many interests and achieved many firsts in his long life. Born John Moore-Brabazon, at Cambridge he founded the first motor club with Lionel de Rothschild and during the holidays was a mechanic to Charles Rolls who remained a...

Veteran-Edwardian-Vintage

A section devoted to old-car matters To Brighton by Benz I have been on more Veteran Car Runs to Brighton than it is perhaps expedient to count. But this year, entries being restricted, the Montagu Motor Museum which, in recent years, has generously provided me with a pre-1905 car to drive, was permitted but one vehicle, Lord Montagu's 1899 Daimler Phaeton.

Rally review

Swedes and Finns are the acknowledged experts on snow rallies, both as organisers and as competitors. It is understandable, therefore, that Scandinavia should have the best selection of such events that any winter has to offer. The best known of these is probably the International Swedish Rally, a qualifier in the Constructors' Championship, mainly because it derives from that exciting summer...

On something in English tradition

"Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few." — the prime minister, of the R.A.F. fighter pilots, 1940 THE firm of Rolls-Royce Ltd. is, perhaps, the most famous in the whole Motor Industry; indeed, it is so well known, and so highly respected, as to be virtually an institution. This was the case in the days before the last war with Germany, but it can fairly safely...
