The cost of motoring sport

2: Autocross Introducing this series last month we cited the many letters from young readers wanting to take up motor racing, and probably put them all off by estimating the cost of marque sports-car racing, with an E-type, at not less than £I,000 a year.

The 20/70 h.p. Crossley

A Rare Vintage Sports Car The 20/70 h.p. Crossley is less well-known than many vintage sports cars that were scarcely as distinguished. Crossley Motors Ltd. of Gorton, Manchester, "of gas-engine fame", had a deservedly high reputation long before the First World War and during the conflict this was enhanced by the good service the Royal Flying Corps, and later the RAF, had from its Crossley...

Cars I have owned

In this entertaining contribution to a much-appreciated series, Sir Anthony Stamer, A.T.A., tells how he graduated from Austin Seven to Alfa-Romeo. – Ed. An article of this type must take one of two definite forms – either it can be packed with technical data and full details of modifications, etc., carried out on one's cars (thus laying oneself open to correction and much sarcastic humour from...

Howard's Post-Historic win was no stroll in the park as the battling trio of Mark Lucock, Dave Nixon and Stephen Primett kept...

Power to the Pageant Sir, May I thank the organisers, competitors and spectators for a truly memorable Cholmondeley Pageant of Power. The depth and breadth of the cars (and bikes) was amazing. I was able to attend as a track marshal via the BARC, so I had a ringside seat!

I decided that the right motor car to go in would be a 30/98.
