Rover 3500 - American style

Jaguar Rover Triumph are currently working on the 50,000-mile durability and emissions runs that are necessary before the multiple award-winning Rover 3500 can be sold in America.

To get to the market...

Kyalami - The South African Circuit

While these words are being read in the March issue of Motor Sport the South African GP will be in full swing on the fast Kyalami circuit north of Johannesburg. Over the years the Kyalami circuit hasn't been changed very much so it is a good basis of comparison and analysis. After the Grand Prix races in Argentina and Brazil there were a lot of variables and unknowns around the performances of...

The VSCC visits Brooklands

Before the war the VSCC had race-meetings at Donington Park but not at Brooklands. It has since discovered this famous venue, rather late in the day, and on February 5th held its second Driving Test session within the hallowed grounds.

I quote: "The EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) has undermined the case of retaining some leaded gasoline...

ROAD IMPRESSIONS High-tech Saab 9000 in the luxury class MEASURED against the activity in the small and medium size car sectors in the past five years, the large-car class has been a fairly neglected area. Most of the running has come from Audi, the new 200 Turbo and Quattro models establishing a benchmark for high performance with comparable handling, but in the summer Saab took the wraps off...
