Down to the sea in a Mercedes

On the evening prior to the Run I went down to the garage at the Gloucester Hotel in Kensington to look at this fine Mercedes-Simplex which had been brought from Germany, together with the 1899 two-cylinder 10 hp Benz (with its remarkable pointed prow adorned with gilled cooling tubes) that the Museum's Curator, von Pein, was to drive. The engine, of 110 x 140 mm (5,320 cc), has its four side-...

Track test; Vauxhall Lotus Reynard

Dragonfly The inaugural year of the Vauxhall-Lotus Challenge in Britain, and its Opel-labelled European counterpart, ostensibly filled every hope expressed for it, and the massive backing of the world's biggest car manufacturer, General Motors, ensured that the series was seen in all the right places: it gave European competitors a better preview of current Formula One tracks than did either...

Less Stress At Silverstone

A new circuit for the Coys Festival was the seal of a great weekend, says Alan Cox. This year's Coys International Historic Festival at Silverstone, in association with Chrysler to begin a five-year deal, was adjudged an overwhelming success on all counts, and was blissfully free of the rancour encountered last year over FIA involvement.

This was, I soon...

Lunch with... Alan Jones

Williams’ favourite son on dodgy campers, nightmare bosses and gelling with Frank and Patrick. By Simon Taylor Scroll down the roster of drivers who won a single World Championship – names like James Hunt and Jody Scheckter, Nigel Mansell and Damon Hill – and for each there’s a different reason why they never took a second title. In the case of Alan Jones, it’s probably down to the English...

The Man Behind The Marque

Bruce McLaren was a fine driver but, as Mark Hughes reports, it was his talents outside the cockpit that made his team great and laid the foundations for the McLaren empire of today. Ambition is a funny thing. For some it burns so bright it sears a lasting scar on their personalities. Others look as if they don't have a scrap of it in their souls, their serene progress looking to the casual...
