Behind the Grand Prix Scene

The Motorhome If you go into the paddock at any of the European Grand Prix races the dominant feature will be the vast articulated transporters used by the various teams and the depots for the tyre companies. In the shadows of all the large vehicles you will find giant motor caravans, known in Americanese as motorhomes. Beside a team transporter they do not look all that giant, but bearing in...

Re-Discovering West-Country Trials Hills With A Singer Roadster

An Economical Overhead Camshaft Open Four-Seater in the Pre-War Sports-Car Tradition Visits Some M.C.C. "Observed Sections" In my article in the July issue of Motor Sport on the meagre number of small open sports cars now available on the British market, I quoted the Singer Roadster as the sole remaining example of this type of car in the 1,100-c.c. category. Several readers have since pointed...

Brooklands reopens—for one nostalgic afternoon

The "Hand and Spear," June 26th. THE idea of a re-union between those who remember the old Motor Course at Weybridge came to Bill Boddy and Dudley Gahagan three years ago after attending a B.M.C.R.C. Brooklands Re-union organised by Rex Judd at the "Hand & Spear," where so many Brooklands rider's and drivers used to quench their monumental thirsts. It took place this year on June 26th and was...

Out of the past

From time to time Motor Sport's readers send me much interesting material, such as a photostat of a page from the one-time Douglas Company's house-magazine The Con-Road, of which I had not heard previously. This came to me from Mr. Geoff Lee of Ruislip and is dated 1927. It is about a racing car assembled by C. G. Pullin from parts he imported from America, for use at Brooklands in 1911. Now I...

1964 British Grand Prix race report - A hard time for Clark

  The British Grand Prix has never had any particular home, and this year it was to hold the title of European Grand Prix so the R.A.C. not only decided to run it themselves, instead of delegating it to the BRDC or the B.A.R.C., but also chose Brands Hatch Stadium as the venue and enlisted the help of almost everyone in the British sporting world. Jim Clark leads off the line while Frank Gardner...

Cars I have owned

[PCM Talbot of Winchester describes cars large and cars small—Ed.] My motoring career started, like that of so many others on a motor-cycle. Back in 1914, when I had attained the somewhat tender age of 9, my mother took me on a day visit by train to see my uncle. His son owned a little Levis motor-cycle. Drive was direct by belt from engine to back wheel—no clutch, no gears—and one started by "...

Matters Of Moment

The New Motorway The new London-Birmingham Motorway is a splendid thing for Britain, not for the entertainment it provides for young, and not-so young rubbernecks on its innumerable bridges -- no doubt they will enjoy innocent fun there throughout the whole of next summer -- but because it is our first real attempt to relieve congestion and speed-up the traffic on our roads. It was built in 19...
