A Section Devoted To Old-Car Matters A Memory of "The Sunbeam" at Wolverhampton The other day I had an interesting chat with Mr. J. L. Cozens, MBE, TD, about the old days at "The Sunbeam" in Wolverhampton. Mr. Cozens' father, L. V. Cozens, joined that great Company in 1903, and two of his uncles, Norman Cozens and Vic Cozens, were also with the Company, in the respective capacities of Service...

Continental Notes

This continual winning by British Formula 1 cars is something we have all been waiting for, and, personally, I have been waiting 25 years for this to happen. No matter whether it is Vanwall beating all-comers at Monza, or B.R.M. beating a lot of also-runs at Silverstone, they are Formula 1 victories by British cars, and that to me is a state of affairs on which we cannot improve. There are people...

Le Mans weekend

(March 31st—April 1st) The noise of racing cars on the Circuit of the Sarthe for the first time since last June must be what attracted a surprisingly large crowd of spectators to Le Mans for the weekend of testing and the 4-hour race. Although there is now a lot of activity throughout the year on the little Bugatti Circuit it is not the same as the full circuit being in use, with cars approaching...

Another look at valve multiples

A few more observations are perhaps justified under this heading, used for one of last month's articles, in view of the return by a number of leading makers of high-performance cars to multiple valves. The 1912 GP Peugeot is often quoted as having set the trend in four valves per cylinder but, in fact, this advance was more bound up with pioneering twin overhead camshafts, because four valves for...

50 Goodyear Wolverhampton 1927-1977

This year marks the half-century of the opening of a Goodyear tyre-plant in Wolverhampton and as this Company has an American parentage which makes more rubber goods than any other Company in the World and dominates Grand Prix motor-racing, I went recently, in the appropriately-Goodyear-shod Editorial BMW, to talk about 50 years of Goodyear in Britain. The Company was established here in 1913,...

A Sunbeam Occasion

On July 2nd/3rd the Sunbeam S.T. D. Register held its Fifth Annual Wolverhampton week-end. On the Saturday the first contingent in the age/distance rally clocked in at Albrighton, while from Tettenhall competitors in the treasure hunt were dispatched on a pleasant scenic route by the organiser Edward May. R. C. Carter failed to check in on time in the rally because the newly-overhauled Thomson-...

ACHIEVEMENT No aspect of motor-car racing has been the subject of so much comment as the evolution of that necessary component— the tyre. It is a truism that the strength of a chain is governed by its weakest link. That is equally true of a racing car. Only a comparatively few years ago, tyres were practically the limiting features of car racing, being uncertain as to performance under any given...

BMW of Munich

MOTOR SPORT visits the Headquarters of this very successful high-quality German car manufacturer The swift rise to popularity of BMW in the sporting, high-quality car market has been a notable feature in the post-war motoring scene. Saved from extinction some years after the war by the sales-success of the little Isetta and BMW 700, this former aero engine company, founded in 1916, was able to...
