More about Mercedes

The Editor Pens an Appreciation of the Dr. Ferdinand Porsche Cars in the 100th Anniversary Year of this Great Engineer There can be no IFs or BUTs in motor racing. It may be said that Bugatti, or Lotus, or some other make, has won more races than any other. This does not necessarily prove that make to be superior, only that it has had a greater opportunity of winning. Agreed, if make "A" and make...

Brighton Run correction

In our Brighton Run report, printing schedules caused some items to go astray. For example, the Emancipation Run took place in 1896 today's run is organized solely by the RAC, and Lord Montagu drove his Daimler, not a De Dion. In mentioning the Mercedes 60 we should have said that if this was the first sports car the Mercedes Simplex was a splendid touring car. As usual Daimler-Benz organisation...

Continental Notes

One problem with a monthly magazine, especially when printing schedules call for copy near the middle of the month, is that by the time anything appears in print it is either out-of-date or further developments have made it inaccurate. Last month I mentioned the Serenissima car being built in Modena, and suggested that it showed few signs of getting near a competitive event. Just as the page in...

1955 British Grand Prix race report - Moss has his chance

  For the first time since 1948, the British Grand Prix did not take place among the green fields of Buckinghamshire but instead was organised in the industrial north-west of England, on the Aintree circuit just outside the port of Liverpool.

Sports and High-Performance Cars at Earls Court

The Agent and the Engineer Were walking hand in hand; They wept like anything to see The cars on every stand.

Small Car Topics

THE Citroen 2 c.v. has had a virtual stranglehold on the economy runabout market since its introduction in 1953, when it was gratefully accepted by the impoverished Frenchman who required even cheaper transport than that provided by VW and Renault at the time. Even now, in 1961, the 2 c.v. sells well although the rising prosperity of France can be gauged from the number of 2 c.v.s appearing With...

Continental Notes

With the first season of the new Formula 1 drawing to a close it is interesting to look back briefly and appreciate what has happened in a comparatively short time, not only from the point of view of the interest during this season but also to realise that an active first season augurs well for the future of Grand Prix racing.
