Two Top German Cars

The Editor tries the BMW 628Csi coupe and the Porsche 924 Turbo These are two makes of car for which I have enormous respect. I used to be very well acquainted with both but for several reasons BMW and Porsche models have eluded me until recently. So it was with some feeling of enjoyable anticipation that I made re-acquaintance with them. The BMW was to be sampled first, in the form of the new (...

RUMBLINGS

If Winter Comes . . . ALTHOUGH we should really be shaking the moth from our leather waistcoats and getting down to Monte Carlo Rally schedules, that great Grand Prix at Donington is difficult to forget and enthusiasts this autumn seem to weakly disregard the coming winter and to talk happily of the next racing season. Racing under the new Formula will be extremely interesting. New cars are...

SANCTIONS AND GRAND PRIX RACING

SANCTIONS AND GRAND PRIX RACING The Italo-Abyssinian conflict—or should we say the difference of opinion between Italy and the League, as such—bids fair to jeopardise, among other things, the future of Grand Prix racing. Already Italy has cancelled certain sporting engagements with Sanction1st countries, and it is only logical to assume that a similar attitude will be adopted in regard to...

European Letter

(By means of which our European reporter occasionally keeps in touch with the Editor.) Dear W.B., For a change I am starting to write this one from the offshore island of Great Britain, instead of the Mainland of Europe, the reason being that I went on strike and flatly refused to go and watch the German GP being run at the Hockenheim Stadium. Over the past months we have heard various out-...

Rumblings

Lulsgate It is excellent news that the West Country is to have another club race meeting this year. The Bristol M.C. & L.C.C. will organise another day's sport at Lulsgate aero-drome on April 15th. Last year this was one of the most enjoyable of the smaller race meetings, so its inclusion in this year's calendar is very welcome. The meeting will be a closed invitation one, open to the B.A.R.C...

Caracciola in England: the Mercedes-Benz team leader gives side-lights on present-day racing

There are many thousands of motor-racing enthusiasts in this country who have never been able to spare the time to see a Grand Prix race abroad, and it was an excellent idea on the part of the Mercedes-Benz company to bring over one of the racing cars which have been so successful all over Europe during the past two years, and to exhibit it in their new showroom at Park Lane. The occasion was...

German Grand Prix

A Tyrrell Demonstration Nurburgring, Germany, August 5th With practice for the German Grand Prix on the Nurburgring starting only five days after the unhappy Dutch Grand Prix at Zandvoort there was a general air of unreadiness on Friday lunch time. It was only a feeling, for in fact all the teams present were in pretty good condition considering the shortage of time for preparation. Those teams...

Notes on the cars at Nurburgring

The Ferrari that was damaged in the Regazzoni/Lauda mix-up at Brands Hatch, number 312T2/027, needed quite a lot of straightening out so was dropped from the team for the German GP and Regazzoni returned to his earlier car, 312T2/025. Lauda still had the latest car, 312T2/028, and his earlier car number 312T2/026 was standing by as a spare, but was not used. The specification of all three cars...

Continental Notes and News

Continermt&, Notes and. News Politics and Sport There is a growing and regrettable tendency, I find, for people to let politics enter into their consideration of motorracing as a sport. Several times lately Englishmen have said to me : "I don't see why we want to praise the Gentians so much for their racing-ears. After all, they couldn't do it unless they were helped by their Government. They...
