C G Grey, when editor of The Aeroplane, observed that humbug is the essence of politics, except when politics become imbecile, and that of the two he preferred humbug; but that we I should be careful to distinguish between politics and statesmanship which emerges once in a generation among politicians. We might think along these lines today, when so much humbug is rife. Examples? Well, that...

Matters of the moment

1965 To commence this, the last issue of 1965, it is appropriate to look back on a year of satisfactory motoring fulfilment. Politicians may prate of universal speed-limits and provide far from adequate roads but specialised motoring continues to thrive. An exciting last-season of the 1.5-litre G.P. Formula ended in the Honda victory in Mexico, GT, Club and, indeed, every form of racing has been...

Belting up

Sir, Following your leader "Compulsion" in the September issue I would like to make a few points about the restrictions we must apply to ourselves in order to maintain a free society. You are correct to point out that seat belts can, under certain circumstances, be hamiful but I think there is little doubt that they save many more lives than they endanger. I cantor that a non-wearer, forced to...

Letters from Readers

N.B. -Opinion pressed are those of our Correspondents and MOTOR SPORT does not necessarily associate itself with them. –E.D. Ford Escort Experiences Sir, Some random reflections on 14,000 miles with an Escort XR3. I feel that it is a well-finished, speedy, small saloon, but totally devoid of any character whatsoever. I am very glad that I kept my old Triumph GT6 which has done 81,000 virtually...

Be Prepared

Vehicle users should be warned that the Department of Transport is hoping to get through Parliament a new Bill altering existing traffic laws and imposing stiffer penalties for infringement.

When The Day Went Badly

A contemporary monthly has been running a series called "Went The Day Badly", about disasters or near disasters remembered by the road testers.

After a forced lay-off, GC returns to his favourite sport facing new challenges It sounds a simple undertaking: co-drive on a minor historic rally. Nothing complicate d in it; hundreds of people do it every weekend. Four years ago I'd have thought nothing of it. Perhaps I might even have looked down my nose at such a small event, compared to the seven-day cross Europe Marathons I was more used to...

Lunch with Win Percy

He was already 31 when his career began in earnest, but a late start was no impediment for one of racing's true gents Writer Simon Taylor Analyse the human make-up of successful racing drivers, and you uncover fascinating variety.
