Matters of the moment

A Date to Remember Among the heat and fury of Grand Prix races counting towards the World Championship club racing tends to be overlooked. But it flourishes, nevertheless, and on October 15th, at Silverstone, something rather special in this latter category is due to take place, namely, the 750 MC’s Six-Hour Relay-Race, This unusual and interesting means of packing a great deal of racing at club...

When it was all over many people wondered when the real race was going to start, feeling that 1 hr. 37 min. could not have seen the running of the Grand Prix of Europe. If the F.I.A. go on encouraging this sort of thing we shall soon have to go to Silverstone Club meetings to watch really arduous racing. In case anyone missed the "carnival atmosphere" at the start, the programmes were all printed...

DONINGTON PARK.—Work proceeds apace with the reconstruction of the Donington Park racing circuit and one or two alterations are being made in order to conform with present day racing standards, but the general shape and character of the circuit will remain much as it was in 1939, when it was last used for motor racing. Much further advanced, however, is the Donington Park racing car museum, which...

Something different

The Alpine Rally A NUMBER of my friends kept disappearing, saying, "We're going on holiday," and when they returned they talked about the change from the normal routine of their lives being as good as a rest cure, and kept asking me when I was going on holiday. Now, for as long as I can remember, my life has been one long holiday, watching motor races every weekend, all over Europe, enjoying...

Historic racing

I do not know who coined the word "Historic" and applied it to old racing cars, but it was an awful mistake, for it implies that the car has a history worth recording. In some cases this is justified, in other cases it is a poor joke, and there are some cases that are downright false. The Germans use the word "Oldtimer", which I believe they got from America, while the French use the phrase "...

Letters from readers

The cost of watching motor racing Sir, As a spectator at motor-racing events since 1954, I am now being deterred by the exorbitant admission prices. Some years ago, Entertainments Tax was lifted and a drop in admission charges was then anticipated; however, they have steadily risen —examples this season include Easter Goodwood, 10s.; Whitsun Mallory Park, £1 ; and now Bank Holiday Brands Hatch,...

Magnum Opus

Everyone expected Ralt to dominate British F3 in 1983. Everyone was eventually proved right. But there was one day in the sun for unfancied Magnum, as Nick Phillips recalls Do you feel lucky, punk?" queried Clint Eastwood, as that most famous of Magnum-wielders, Dirty Harry. His victims never were, of course. At Silverstone in 1983, Ayrton Senna was the young gun in the sights of a Magnum but it...

Emphasis on sports cars

Two Jaguar X120 engined "Specials," Oscar Moore's HWM-Jaguar and EP Scragg's Alta Jaguar. One of the more interesting and potent "specials" to appear in this year's sports-car and club races has been Oscar Moore's HWM-Jaguar. Its successes are rather too numerous to detail, but it will be recalled that at the last BARC Members' Meeting at Goodwood, Moore won a scratch race at 74.61 mph, and was...
