Bolide in a china shop

In these days of "shortest and most direct route" and, even worse, of "alternative means of transport," a long road journey is a rare treat. However, by good fortune the more usual 7 m.p.g. flying ferry wasn't to be had on a recent occasion, and much less fuel was with difficulty obtained for a spot of motoring. Without any embellishments, 300 miles in a little over 24 hours was a pleasing...

Cars in books

One Of the privileges and pleasures of editing MOTOR SPORT is the constant stream of interesting correspondence received from its readers, which is something I appreciate deeply, even though only a very small proportion of the intelligent and ingenious letters sent to me get published, due to the ever-present exigencies of space.

Matters Of Moment

Lancia Wins The Monte Carlo Rally Any disappointment that Britons feel that this year's comparatively easy Monte Carlo Rally was won by an Italian car can be tempered by the knowledge that the victorious car is one of the more roadworthy and technically-advanced modern high-performance vehicles and that Louis Chiron, who drove it, is one of France's most popular racing drivers.

B.A.R.C. Admission Charges

It is now possible to give the admission charges to Goodwood and Jersey. At Goodwood on Easter Monday the charges are 3s. 6d., 5s. and 10s. per person, inclusive of tax, depending on which enclosure is preferred. Children under 14 are to be admitted at half-price; so we must dig out our old school-caps. Reserved grandstand seats cost 20s., 25s. or 30s. according to location. Car park fees are 10s...

Racing At Whitsun

THE Whit-Saturday Goodwood Meeting of the B.A.R.C. attracted a relatively small crowd, perhaps on account of memories of the Silverstone congestion of a week earlier, possibly because of the Derby. The atmosphere of pre-war Brooklands was most enjoyable and the Sussex constabulary were ready and willing to exercise skill in coping with traffic congestion, should it have arisen. The main...
