Damaged P25 to be restored

Sir, You reported the very sad death of Spencer Flack in your April edition, and implied that the BRM P25 he had been driving was destroyed in a fiery accident The car was severely damaged and the rear part with the fuel tank did catch fire.

Matters of moment

I’ll be honest with you. Sam Posey was not the first person I asked to write an appreciation of the extraordinary Mark Donohue. Though I knew Posey to be an accomplished racer in both Indycars and sportscars (at Le Mans in '70 and '71 his Ferrari 512 was first car home behind the uncatchable Porsches), I did not consider him as I had always had Brian Redman in mind for the job. Redman thought...

Historic racing

I do not know who coined the word "Historic" and applied it to old racing cars, but it was an awful mistake, for it implies that the car has a history worth recording. In some cases this is justified, in other cases it is a poor joke, and there are some cases that are downright false. The Germans use the word "Oldtimer", which I believe they got from America, while the French use the phrase "...

Who does what in historic motorsport?

Aston Martin Owners Club Not only has the AMOC got a full season of racing for Aston Martins, it is also the custodian of the UK-based Formula Junior Championship. Sadly, for the first time since the 1950s, the club has been unable to secure a suitable date for the St John Horsfall race meeting at Silverstone, which leaves a big gap in the club's programme. British Racing Drivers...

Going Green

The Global-warming panic is on! HRH The Prince of Wales has presented convincingly his own long TV documentary telling how we are destroying the environment. Mrs. Thatcher has said what she will do to combat the "greenhouse" effect. So how will "going Green" affect the car owner? Already much nonsense is being bandied about. One professor wants a 500% VAT increase on fuel, just the excuse the...
