National Racing Review

It has been a year of development, controversy and near-peak excitement, rather than a season of out-and-out classic motor racing on the national club scene. On the whole grids have been full - in the majority of cases near to over-flowing - and competition has been keen and fierce. It is, perhaps, a sign of the slightly easier times in which we live that there appears to have been no dire...

Rally Review

Fiat Invincible Since last month's Rally Review was written, two events in the World Rally Championship have taken place, and before this issue of Motor Sport is published yet another will have gone by before the RAC Rally of Great Britain in November. By that time the World Rally Championship will have been Italian clinched by Fiat, for after the Sanremo Rally the Italian team's points total was...

Formula Two Review

With five of the 12 rounds of this year's European Formula Two Championship run two Swedish drivers head the points table. On paper Stefan Johansson has the lead on 19 points but fellow countryman Eje Elgh (18 points) is appealing against a disqualification from the results of the Thruxton round, which cost him six points. Elgh finished runner-up to Maurer team-mate Robert Guerrero at Thruxton...

Silence!

The RAC have extended the mandatory silencing of exhaust systems for racing cars still further this season. Last year six categories were affected, and a further six are to be drawn within the net for 1979, leaving only international formulae outside the web. The largest outcry has come from the requirement to silence Super Saloon cars. By their very nature these machines carry all kinds of...

Rally Review

A Threat to Road Rallies Before Britain’s Motor Clubs found themselves able to follow the example of the RAC by organising rallies which used special stages on forest and other private roads, there was no official British Rally Championship to speak of. There was such a series run by the RAC, but little thought went into it and compared with other, non-rallying, series it was very much a poor...

The prince and the palace coup

He once spent the night in a goods yard in his Austin Maxi, but then the Queen’s cousin is a celebrated car buff. Now he’s heading an invasion of Hampton Court Palace. Ahead of September’s prestige concours, we spoke to Prince Michael of Kent Writer Gordon Cruickshank If you plotted the venues for the grander concours d’élégance events you’d have a map of some beautiful places: Venice, Pebble...

V-E-V Miscellany

V-E-V Miscellany.— We regret to learn of the death of Albert E. Boyer-Lowe, last November. He was a Motor Industry pioneer whom we interviewed in 1965 about the Phoenix car, for which he was responsible. We also have with deep regret to record the passing of Miss Barbara Marshall, who was a close companion of Betty Haig and who had an active motor sporting career, commencing with her Anzani-GN...

Matters of Moment

Matters of Moment The Birmingham Grand Prix THE organisers of the Chequer Bitter Classic, the parade of racing cars and drivers around the streets of Birmingham, have called the event "The Greatest Free Show on Earth". No motor racing enthusiast who attended could possibly disagree. Fangio in a Mercedes-Benz 300SLR, Moss in a Maserati 250F, Brooks in a Vanwall, de Graffenried in an Alfa Romeo...

Isle of Man Classic

A visit to Douglas, on the Isle of Man, is like a time warp to a bygone age. A still-grand town, that has seen better days and is sitting uncomfortably with the 1990s — all seedy colonnaded Victorian hotels, arched walkways, tacky seaside shops and amusement arcades. Douglas is perhaps a dowager Duchess waiting for the chauffeur to remind her of her youth, only to find that he has driven up in an...
