The British Jaguar wins at Le Mans

A British victory at Le Mans! Thanks to William Lyons for building the new Type “C” XK 120 Jaguar, to Peter Walker and Peter Whitehead for driving one to a brilliant victory, and to Stirling Moss for taking the lap record in another of these Jaguars in the early stages of the World’s most important sports-car race and thus breaking up the Talbot opposition, this came true in the year’s race. The...

Bentleys at Silverstone

THE TRADITIONAL last-Saturday-in-August Bentley Drivers Club meeting at Silverstone had two anniversaries to celebrate this year—the 50th year since the last Bentley win at Le Mans, when two Speed Six Bentleys came home first and second to give the British Company its fifth win in the eight year history of the race and the 70th anniversary of the founding of the Morgan Motor Company. The former...

Excellent Entertainment at Ibsley

The W. Hants & Dorset C.C. Race Meeting at lbsley on April 18th lived up to tradition. It was a happily-informal, well-run meeting, with interesting racing for 750 and 1,172 Formula cars, sports cars, vintage cars, 500s and Formule Libre racing cars. Speeds were high over the 2.2-mile circuit, and in spite of a clash with Snetterton an excellent entry of over 125 was obtained. (But what a...

Rally review

Reflections on Canada and Italy Putting aside for a moment the World Championship duel between Ford and Fiat, there is a more personal feature common to both the Criterium du Quebec and the Sanremo Rally with which we would like to begin this month, and that is the staggering performance put up by the German driver Walter Rohrl. He finished neither event, his Fiat's engine stopping after On oil...

Historic Grand Prix Cars

The 1951 Grand Prix season ended on a very high note, with terrific battles between the supercharged 1.6-litre Alfa Romeos and the unsupercharged 4½-litre Ferraris. Alfa Romeo had been monopolising the scene with their Tipo 158 and Tipo 159 and their defeat by Ferrari on three occasions had everyone agog with excitement and anticipation tor the 1952 season. By this time, Maserati had faded from...

XXVIII Gran Premio d'Italia

A TRULY WONDERFUL VANWALL VICTORY Monza September 8th. Realising the impossibility, from a technical angle, of running a race on the combined road and track at Monza, the past lessons having been absorbed, the Automobile Club of Italy decided to hold this year's Grand Prix of Italy on the road circuit only. The last time this was done was in 1954, before the banked track was built, and then the...

Gripping stuff

Carlos Sainz wins one of the most exciting World Championship rallies on record Suggest to the main players that World Championship rallying is getting a shade unsubtle and that even wrestling isn't fixed as blatantly as this, and they smile sheepishly. No one had quite expected the Rally of Portugal to produce such a barnstorming finish. For Subaru, victory came as a relief; for Toyota, there...
