1969, '71 & '73 Jackie Stewart

My first memory of seeing Jackie Stewart is at the Oulton Park Gold Cup meeting in 1964: a small trim man, talking to a pretty girl – Helen, his wife – with a scarf tied around her head. They were standing by their car, a green Mini. That day Stewart, driving Ken Tyrrell’s Cooper-BMC, won the Formula 3 race beating Chris Irwin’s Merlyn.

Cars I Have Owned And Raced

King-Clark, was the opening chapter in his as yet unpublished book about his extensive flying in his aero-planes, a Miles Gypsy Ill Hawk G-ACT D and a Miles IIA Whitney Straight G-AERS, and his military career but it is so interesting I decided MOTOR SPORT should publish it. Lt Col King-Clark's young brother "Cuffy" was also an enthusiast, running an Ulster A7, a 1928 20/25 hp...

Reflections – So, the British Grand Prix is saved. Or is it? – Lewis at Silverstone – a moment to savour – It’s time for Kimi to step up his game again He wasn’t to know it, but DC’s timing wasn’t the best.
