1 ½-litre racing from 1935

A survey of recent international small car races. British E.R.A. achievements in perspective TO the British enthusiast 1½-litre racing has a special significance, because, while this country has never made any attempt to compete in full Grand Prix racing, she has sought, and attained not a little success in events confined to cars the engine size of which does not exceed 1,500 c.c.

The Reminiscences of Reggie Tongue

A most absorbing account, by the well-known racing driver, of the cars which have served him both in races and on the road. My first real, interest in motor cars began at a time when my father used to recount stories to me of the Bentley Boys at Le Mans. A time when British motor racing was supreme. How I admired, as a boy, the stories of Birkin, Sammy Davis, Woolf Barnato, Benjafield, Duller,...

Veteran to classic -- match races

Motoring historian Doug Nye reminded us in his 'Skulduggery' feature in Classic & Sportscar recently of a Match Race which took place at the Crystal Palace circuit in October 1938 between Prince 'Bira' and Arthur Dobson, both in ERAs. Doug remarked that most Match Race themes disappointed, this race between 'Bira's three-year old ERA Romulus and Dobson's two-year-old B-type ERA being no...

rumblings

The Fastest Road Car IBELIEVE that a writer of motor notes for one of the daily newspapers wrote of the Invitation Road-Car Race which took place at Brooklands on Whit-Monday that about all it proved was that the fastest road-equipped car was Arthur Dobson's. The majority of students of form with whom I have discussed the matter seem to share the view that this race, or to be more accurate, these...

WO Bentley at Le Mans

BILL BODDY WO Bentley at Le Mans ALL THE PUBLICITY ABOUr THE ENTRY OF TWO BENTLEY EXP Speed 8s for Le Mans has been justified. One retired early, but the other finished third, behind two Audis. An excellent show. I believe they were run not so much to win outright as to finish well. One is reminded of how, in 1939, W Bentley did not want to run the V12 Lagondas — of his design — in the 24-hour...
