Pomeroy trophy

Unjust comparisons The star may not have come but the show still went on. Most present felt a tinge of disappointment when Nick Mason's Ferrari F40 failed to appear at Silverstone for the Pomeroy Trophy on March 4, but as the cold, grey, wet day gradually gave way to bright, sunny weather, that disappointment evaporated with the water from the track. There were no veterans amongst the 61 cars...

Now he has astonished the motoring world by pulling out of competition events. The Rootes Group, before Chrysler UK engulfed it, did this, but when you are in financial straits...

Matters of Moment

Saab Wins the R.A.C. Rally The 1960 R.A.C. Rally, which determined the destiny of both the European Rally Championship (won by Mercedes-Benz) and the Ladies' Rally Championship (won jointly by Pat Moss and Ann Wisdom driving B.M.C. products), was a generally well-run but not very exciting event ably organised by hard-working Jack Kemsley, who secured a bright but not vivid feather for the R.A.C.'...

Saab's new test

A capacity held of 1950s cars will contest the 'Rally of the Tests' from November 30 to December 2. This new event celebrates the 50th anniversary of the first competitive RAC Rally, as the 1951 event was the first to feature timed tests on private ground. Just as in 1951, it starts in Blackpool on Friday and finishes on Brighton's seafront three days later. Leading the field away will be Arthur...

I have owned two XJ-S - my first was RHD Chassis No. 15 and on that car I covered 42,000 miles. I experienced a few niggling...

M.G. at Abingdon

A visit to B.M.C.'s Sports-Car Factory and impressions of the MGB-GT. I am not a rabid pre-war-M.G. "fan" but I think far too many Englishmen underrate the very fine competition record of this make and the valuable prestige it gained for this country before the war in racing and record-breaking. Indeed, in the War-time issues of Motor Sport I did my best to emphasise this in special articles on...
