Rally review

Canadian Shell 4,000 Rally The Canadian Shell 4,000 Rally is the World's longest event held under F.I.A. rules at the moment and the longest anyway with the demise of the Round Australia Trial. This year it provided several "firsts." The first win for a non-Canadian crew, the first international rally win for Boreham's new '67 shape Lotus Cortina (an early baptism considering it took the old-...

Auto. Mini

B.M.C.'s Offering for Learners and Novices ENTHUSIASTS may tend to sneer at automatic transmission and to me it represents a retrograde step towards motoring simplification that is a sop to women drivers and does not necessarily mean increased safety, inasmuch as anything exceedingly easy to do is all too often done casually. Yet we should not sneer at this exceptionally clever technical...

Brands Hatch 6-Hours

This year's Motor International 6-hour touring car race, held at Brands Hatch on June 6th, had a very promising entry; but last-minute withdrawals resulted in the field which actually appeared being a good deal less interesting than it might have been. These withdrawals included two Lancias, two Alfa Romeo Giulias, a Swiss Chevrolet Impala due to be driven by Jo Siffert and P. Zund, the Alan...

15,000 watch the first public Cinturato test day!

It asked Cinturato users to describe — in detail — their experience of the tyre. And it outlined a special test day to be held at Brands Hatch. The response was remarkable. Four thousand people filled in the questionnaire — and we were swamped with...

Tyre news

Pirelli Test Day The press had a preview of Pirelli's ambitious Cinturato Test Day at Brands Hatch a couple of days before the public was admitted. For us, this meant a dreary drive in the Dunlop SP41-shod Morris 1100 along the A25 (surely one of the most trying roads in the country, where one's speed is that of the slowest commercial, some of which go very slowly up the numerous gradients),...

Lunch with…John Fitzpatrick

Not everyone's cut out for single-seater racing, which is no problem when your talent burns just as brightly in touring cars and endurance racing, as Fitz's did for over two decaces BY SIMON TAYLOR Talking through John Fitzpatrick's long and remarkable motor sport career, two early dates stand out.
