The Corse of true love

…never did run smooth between garagista Enzo Ferrari and Alfa Romeo. Yet their turbulent partnership through the 1930s laid the bedrock of the Ferrari legend Writer Paul Fearnley A chill March day yet his car is naked: tubes, wires, rivets. He’s road-tested bare chassis before. That, though, was a long time ago, and this is momentously different. In suit, shirt and tie, he, never the most agile,...

Letter from Europe

[By means of which the Continental Correspondent, while he is motoring abroad, keeps in touch with the Editor.] Dear W.B., Before leaving Spain on a recent trip I made a detour down to Sitges, just south of Barcelona, to look at the disused concrete banked track. The man in the Tourist Office did not cotton on when I asked about it in English, even though his English was quite good, and...

Continental Notes and News

Continental Notes and News By HAROLD NOCKOLDS A Racing Suicide. S0 far as my memory serves me, cases of people committing suicide by crashing a car have so far been confined to the pages of Michael Arlen's " Green Hat "and the Earl of Cottenham's " Sicilian Circuit." But a genuine suicide of this nature actually took place during the practising for the Grand Prix of Czechoslovakia, at Masarvk. A...

Whitney Straight - Racing Driver

I find it astonishing that, whereas books have been written about so many racing drivers, from those of the pioneer days, through the interim periods, to the present day, nothing has appeared, so far as I can recollect, about Whitney Straight, or Earl Howe' for that matter. So, although it is scarcely possible to do full justice to any driver in a magazine article, the young American driver was...

Targa Florio

It was more than a race: It was a passion, a passion so strong that it still burns today. Paul Fearnley is swept off his feet by it, 23 years after the final chequer. A straight. After the innumerable (832 if you really must know) twists and turns, it's a straight that sticks in my mind. Odd that. And it's not the four-mile, aching-aim-flexing, crotch strap-readjusting, gauge-checking blind out...

An island race

Bill Boddy recounts the growth of the Targa Florio from one man's dream to everybody's idea of a road race adventure The early Targa Florios have had their place in motor racing history obscured by European grands prix. That's a shame, because this daunting event was perhaps the greatest road race of them all. The low average winning speeds of these grim contests over the Sicilian mountains and...

CONTINENTAL NOTES-continued

Fagioli's Plans Settled. One by one the leading Continental drivers are finally settling their plans for the coming season. As soon as it is known that one of them is "in the market," so to speak, Rumour gets to work and whispers a different tale in every car. A good example of this can be found in that tough Italian driver, Luigi Fagioli, champion of Italy for 1933. First it got round that he...

Continental Notes and News

By HAROLD NOCKOLDS To Attack Jenkins' 24-Hour Record. IHEAR that a French firm is preparing a car to attack the World's 24-hour record, at present held by D. A. Jenkins, with his Pierce-Arrow. Jenkins' speed is 127 m.p.h. odd, so that the car will have to lap Montlhery at well over 130 m.p.h„ which seems to be a pretty tall order. The attempt is to be made just before the Paris Salon, but whether...

Continental Notes and News

After a spate of reports and counterreport's it is finally announced that So-and-So has signed a contract with Such-and-Such a Stable. Splendid ! we say, and a paragraph to that effect is immediately dispatched to the printer. The day after the...

RUMBLINGS

Future of the T.T. Races. at THE Royal Automobile Club are at present deliberating the future of the Ulster race, and have asked the opinions of manufacturers, past competitors and other interested parties as to the form that the 1934 event should take. This scheme cannot fail to do good, and I hope that the suggestions received will give material for a more widely supported event. A change which...
