The Wartime Diaries of an RFC Officer

The Wartime Diaries of an RFC Officer (Continued from the November issue) WE HAVE reached the Diary entries of "X", the RFC Officer who became a well-known racing motorist after the war, for December 1917. He was met on December 14th by Bush and his Crossley, in which they went to the War Office and later net off for Wyton, arriving by lunchtime. Lady X was staying near Ely so her son visited her...

All in a year's work

In which the Deputy Editor reviews his 1979 motoring activities  It doesn't feel as if a year has passed since I last wrote this annual review, and looking back through my diary for this flash of time I wonder how I have managed to fit in the long list of cars driven, the countries and events visited, the production of 12 issues of this magazine and a semblance of relatively normal life as well....

A Section Devoted to Aeronautical Affairs Winning the 1980 "Dawn-to-Dusk" The bend of the Thames at Greenwich slid under the yellow fabric-covered wing as we turned onto track for the final leg. Past Crystal Palace, Croydon and KenIey, over the M25, and there was Redhill ahead, standing out like a bowling green in the bright evening sunlight. We joined overhead, the T indicated 26 and, with the...

Argentina Rally

Strange how some rally teams tackle huge travelling distances in their strides and tend to fight shy of others. The New Zealand Rally, for instance, attracted respectable numbers from Europe, yet July's Argentina Rally drew only two professionally driven cars, and they only because Audi was keen to gather more World Championship points. Lancia, the German team's only real rival this year, decided...

Eric Brandon Wins at Brands Hatch

Eric Brandon Wins at Brands Hatch Cooper Still Supreme in Battle Against J.B.S. THE Brands Ilateh Stadium opened its season on April 8th with a Half-Litre C.C. Meeting, run in dry, cold weather before a big crowd. There is no denying that this close racing provides plenty of thrills and that at no other venue can such an excellent view of the racing be had. The spectators shout for their...

Continental notes

The end of October and throughout November saw a great deal of activity among Grand Prix teams, preparatory to the 1957 season, and most encouraging for the British followers of the Sport is the fact that Stirling Moss has joined the Vanwall team. The Vanwall has been tested at Silverstone and OuIton Park and while it still suffered from small troubles, connected with brakes, suspension and the...

the nice g.p won by varz

THE NICE G.P. WON BY VARZI NUVOLARI AND ETANCELIN (MASERATIS) GIVE THE FERRARI ALFA-ROMEOS A GOOD RUN FOR THEIR MONEY, AND THE LATTER FINISHES SECOND. RACE ATTENDED BY HUGE CROWDS.

Cars I Have Owned

by W. Bancroft of Renfrewshire When a near neighbour acquired a self-propelled vehicle my interest was aroused and has remained with me ever since. To get my neighbour's vehicle ready for a run meant filling water tanks, filling paraffin tank, greasing steering and transmission and then lying down and lighting up the boiler. As this was rather a dirty job and I was a keen youngster it was my job...

Road to ruin

Sir, Just what are Ferrari trying to do? The way they are manipulating results is taking the Michael (no pun intended), and to 'fix' a race in the US, where everybody else is trying hard to make F1 a success, makes it even worse. Do they insult the public's intelligence like this in CART, NASCAR or the IRL? I think not I have not missed an F1 race live or on television since the late 1980s, but...

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. For some time the word had been that Sebastian Vettel would be partnering Mark Webber in the 2009 Red Bull team, as formally confirmed at Hockenheim, and Coulthard, at 37, had decided that the...
