Silverstone Classic

Huge grids, fantastic racing, big crowds and superb weather all pointed to the best edition of the Silverstone Classic so far. Tragically, an awful shadow was cast when Denis Welch lost his life after his Lotus 18 overturned in the HGPCA Pre-61 race on Sunday. Welch’s death was a stark reminder of the inherent risk in racing cars that are 50 years old – or more. Only the previous day Sid Hoole,...

One hundred and sweet sixteen

Maserati’s century of life has created some magnificent cars, notably the 16-cylinders One of the most celebrated of all great Maserati designs is the Sedici Cilindri – the 16-cylinder – campaigned by the always tiny Bologna factory from 1929 to 1934.

Maserati's Achilles Heel

Sir, Nigel Roebuck's interesting essay on Achille Varzi needs a little amplification. He suggests that Varzi moved from Alfa Romeo to Bugatti in 1931.

They did not get on, and when Alfieri Maserati offered Varzi one of his new Type 26M cars for the...

Ettore Bugatti himself that the cars will be of 2.8 litres engine capacity, but he is unable as yet to divulge any further particulars, although these may be annum-iced any day now. The entry of two 5-litre unnamed cars for Le...

HE ROYAL GRAND PRIX E ARCANGELI WINNEI ON MASERA F all the races which are run nowadays the Royal Grand Prix of Rome approximates perhaps most nearly to the French Grand Prix races in their most flourishing days.

THE MONACO GRAND PRIX AN ALFA-ROMEO VICTORYUVOLARI'S BRILLIANT DRIVE. IN these hard times, when organisers of important motor-races are generally faced with the difficulty of securing sufficient entries, the Monaco Grand Prix comes as a refreshing reminder that motor-racing is far from showing signs of decline.

The Diatto has the considerable distinction of having been the fore-runner of the Maserati. Yet the first such cars were quite humble and rather ugly light cars, which were turned out by the engineering company of that name in Torino when it was not engaged in constructing railways. To this end Adolphe Clement was induced to join the Board and his Clément-Bayard cars were made under licence. It...
