XVIIIth Grand Prix of Monaco

Moss is Supreme Monte Carlo, May 29th. Being the first major Grand Prix of the European season, everyone was out in full force and the entry list was one of the most interesting seen for some time. The B.R.M. team had three of their 1960 rear-engined cars, with Bonnier, Gurney and Graham Hill as drivers; Cooper had their two 1960 ears in the hands of Brabham and McLaren, these new cars looking...

The Ulster Tourist Trophy

A Hard-Fought Victory for Mercedes-Benz  Belfast, September 17th. For the first time the Ulster T.T. became a straightforward, simple race, in which the first car to cover 84 laps of the Dundrod circuit would be adjudged the winner of the Tourist Trophy, presented by the R.A.C. In the past, complicated handicapping systems have invariably resulted in lack of public interest as well as lack of...

VII Grande Premio de Portugal

A Real Road Race Porto, August 24th Although six previous Portuguese Grand Prix events have been held, starting in 1950 and fluctuating between the Porto circuit and the Lisbon circuit, they have all been for sports cars and, strictly speaking, not Grand Prix races at all. This year a full-scale Formula I event was organised and, in addition, it formed a round in the Drivers' World Championship...

Rob Walker Equipe Wins Again MONTE CARLO, May 18th. THE organising committee of the Automobile Club of Monaco deserve full marks for not pandering to the present-day ideas of the F.I.A. in turning Grand Prix races into " sprint-type ” events, for they kept the XVI Monaco G.P. to a traditional full-length G.P. of 100 laps of the tiny, narrow, 3.145-km. street circuit. On the other hand they...

Aston Martin versus Eurie Ecosses at Goodwood

Tony Brooks Wins the Goodwood Trophy at 88.19 m.p.h. THE last big B.A.R.C. Goodwood Meeting of the year was held on one of the few fine days, September 8th. Unfortunately, the fare provided did not live up to that of previous years, for only a handful of out-dated racing cars competed - with one exception, Salvadori's works prototype F. II Cooper - and otherwise this was sports-car racing, with...

The Reims Weekend

Ferrari Has a Clean Sweep Reims, July 13/14th. With the Grand Prix de l'A.C.F. being run at Rouen this year the organisers of the Reims circuit were left without a World Championship meeting for their high-speed circuit. As the B.P. fuel and oil company were sponsoring the meeting once again, with enormous prize money as last year, a veritable fiesta of speed and sport was laid on. So great is...

Imola sports-car race

Castellotti wins for Osca Imola Sept 30th. Postponed from the beginning of June, the Imola race was eventually held at the end of September and limited to sports cars between 1,300 and 1,500 cc. Held over 50 laps of the 5-kilometre hilly road-circuit on the edge of the town of Imola, the race attracted factory entries from Osca, Maserati, Lotus and Cooper, so that though they were all running...

Continental Notes

Over the years the Continental racing scene has been gradually changing, for better and for worse, but this year it took a decided step backwards, for Easter went by with no racing whatsoever taking place. For years now it has been traditional for the Pau G.P. to be held on Easter Monday, and, depending whether Easter was early or late, this event or the Syracuse G.P. opened the European racing...

Brooks Wins at Last SPA, BELGIUM, June 15th. AFTER spending a great deal of money last year rebuilding the pits and paddock and modifying the circuit considerably, easing corners, removing bumps, widening the road and re-surfacing, all the work was to no avail for financial wrangles prevented the Belgian G.P. being held in 1957. However, this year all was well and the full Grand Prix circus was...
