Continental Notes and News

ConfinerecaL Note Newo By OUR CONTINENTAL CORRESPONDENT Teutonic Thoroughness I wonder how many spectators 'at a Grand Prix realise the immense amount of preparation that has gone towards the perfection of the cars flashing past the trOunes?

BRITAIN ECLIPSED AT LE MANS ONLY SIXTEEN FINISHERS OUT OF FORTY-TWO STARTERS. TWO DEL AHAYES FINISH IN THE LEAD. MORGAN AND H.R.G. WIN THEIR SPURS. A RACE TO DESTRUCTION. THE 1938 Le Mans Race will be remembered as a rather curious affair. It started like a lion, -with a terrific Alfa-Delahaye-Darracq battle, and went out like a lamb, as all the leaders fell out and two backmarkers came up into...

Veteran to classic -- Delage domination

Robert Benoist v Ayrton Senna Writing this before the outcome of the Mexican Grand Prix I do not know whether Ayrton Senna will have recovered his unbroken run of successes for McLaren-Honda this year.

By Anthony Pritchard Amilcar — a name redolent of the small sporting cars proliferating in France after WWI.

Complex inferiority

In 1924, Delage unveiled France's new Grand Prix hope. Its sophisticated V12 engine promised much but in vain, as Anthony Pritchard explains Amongst the exotic noises at the 2003 Goodwood Festival of Speed, one of the sweetest came from the Brooklands Paddock behind the stables. A high, multi-cylinder rasp, it spoke not with an Italian accent, but with a French one, for it came from Lukas Hüni's...

Faster of Paris

"The French GP, Europe's most important race, had always been run'on temporary road circuits - until Montlhery in 1925.
