Matters of moment

We’ve been gratified by the overwhelmingly positive response to our Time for a Formula 1 Revolution cover story, run in the April issue. We published our framework for change on the conviction that the majority of Motor Sport’s readers have become disenchanted with the artifice of modern Grand Prix racing, and judging by the feedback our instincts were on the mark. The response from the...

Peter Green's 1933 Ex-Straight / Seaman K3 MG Magnette

Peter Green's 1933 Ex-Straight / Seaman K3 MG Magnette IT IS always a pleasure to encounter almost-original historic cars.

Matters of Moment

All quiet at the Palace Although Britain is well-provided with race circuits, if they are not further threatened by bans on account of noise, which airports escape, it is sad that the Crystal Palace circuit in London is to close, because this is the last of the pre-war circuits and the oldest of our surviving race courses, motorcycles having been unleashed over the Palace paths in the 1920s.

At the coalface

Michael Tee: Photographer, reporter and MD 1949-77 Although I was photographing all the grands prix, the 'Bod' called me the Production Manager because I also had to chase all the sections, and strip in all the classifieds as they came in. Dad [Mr Tee] let me go to overseas GPs because I did both words and pictures, so he only had one ticket to buy. Myself and Peter Gamier of The Autocar were...

Happy Days

Singapore-born of an Australian mother and Scottish father in 1913, Ian F Connell competed in a considerable number of races and other competition events in an interesting variety of racing cars, both before and after the war. A short time ago I paid him a visit to chat about those days. Connell's father died when Ian was four and his mother and stepfather did not become regular motorists until...
