Homes of the racing drivers

At the risk of being accused of taking a leaf out of Country Life and The Field it seems interesting to look at some of the houses in which racing drivers were born or lived. Some months ago we showed you Paul Court, near Tewkesbury, where Seaman lived when he was not abroad driving for Mercedes-Benz. The picture above shows about one-third, all that is left, of the house where Saunders-Davies...

Alfas up again There is always something new from Africa, and those two ferocious Grand Prix races, one in Tripoli and one in Tunisia, which took place last month, reveal a new and more healthy situation in big-car racing. After a period of complete, albeit well-deserved, domination by the two German marques, the 12cylinder Alfa-Romeo has at last arrived and the results of the two races show it...

The rest of the Silverstone circus

Not content with the Grand Prix there was a fiesta of fun and sport for the spectators. The day opened with the 25-lap Sports-Car Race, in which Flockhart ran right away from the field in the Coombs' 2-litre Cooper-Monaco after Dickson's Ecurie Ecosse Cooper Monaco had retired from the lead with transmission failure. Ashdown's 1,100 Lola made all the big cars look ridiculous by holding second...

Motor Racing and the English Public. COMPARED with the crowds who assemble at every corner round the motor-cycle T.T. course, the number of spectators who watched the Mannin races at Douglas this year was disappointingly small. The Stand, which consisted of four "bays," each holding perhaps 200 people each, was only threequarters full, and there was no difficulty in getting to the front line at...

ON SPORTS CARS FOR RACING It is rather a pity that there are not more purely speed events open to ordinary drivers of ordinary sports-ears. Nowadays we are confined to the sprint events in the form of widely scattered speed trials and speed hill climbs, a few club meetings at Donington, and the altogether excellent One Hour orgies provided by the Junior Car Club (with corners) and by the Motor...

The International Trophy

Silverstone, March 19th This year saw the running of the thirtieth International Trophy race at Silverstone, the first one in the present series being held in 1949, which Alberto Ascari won with the then new and exciting short-wheelbase Ferrari with supercharged V12 engine of 1 1/2-litres. However, the International Trophy as a major British race started long before that, in 1933 to be exact,...

Talbot BGH 23

As eleven years have now passed since I restored this car as near as was humanly possible to its pre-war specification, and as it has been much written about meanwhile, I am surprised that all of a sudden suggestions are being made in MOTOR SPORT that "it ain't wot it used ter be". First, you Mr. Editor who report a rumour that the car "has Jaguar con rods and a light alloy body". This is no...

LAGONDA AVERAGES OVER 104 M.P.H. FOR ONE HOUR EARLIER this year a stir was caused when S. C. H. Davis averaged 102.2 m.p.h. for 60 mins. at Brooklands under official R.A.C. observation, driving a fully-equipped sports FrazerNash-B.M.W. running on pump fuel. To encourage such public demonstration of a sports-car's ability to achieve over 100 m.p.h., and to possess a high degree of reliability into...

Roesch Talbot road-holding

Sir, I have every sympathy for your correspondent Mr. Jones. Like him, I have never yet driven a strange Talbot with properly adjusted brakes. This, however, is hardly the fault of the car, and while I do not for one moment wish to implicate Mr. Jones himself, reading his letter has reminded me once again what a pity it is that so many people rush into print to blame motor cars for some failing...
