XV Grand Prix De Pau

Pau, April 20th. The Pau Grand Prix took place on Easter Monday over the 2.769 kilometre course which is one of the few remaining of the street-race type, and furthermore one which has not been altered in any way since 1935.

Grand Prix de Pau

Ferraris back in form By our Continental Correspondent Pau, Easter Monday. As  last year the Pau G.P. was for Formula ll cars and of the sixteen entries only two failed to appear for practice.

XVth Grand Prix d'Albi

Great B.R.M./Ferrari Battle ALBI, FRANCE, May 31st. The idea behind the Albi meeting this year was to try to incorporate all types of Grand Prix racing, past, present and future, represented by Formula I and Formula II, and to give the opportunity to try out 1954 Formula cars. Also, by running a heat for each of the existing formulae and a final combining both, there was the possibility of having...

IVTH GRAND PRIX DE ROUEN ROUEN. Sunday, June 28th. WITH the Grand Prix de rA.c.F. returning to Reims, the Automobile Club de Normand had to think of some new innovation to justify the enormous expenditure of last year when the Rouen-Les Essarts circuit was entirely rebuilt, to become one of the best in France.

The 1,000 Kilometres Race - Montlhery

Another Victory for Maserati Montlhery, June 10th.

During the winter months the Autodrome underwent a face-lifting operation in which the pits...

Notes On The Cars At Monte Carlo

Ferrari had five cars for his team of drivers, Fangio, Castellotti, Musso, and Collins. They were all modified Lancias, three of them with the Syracuse body style where the pontoons merge into the body, and two with the Argentine layout. Mechanically the cars were unchanged from previous races, the V8 engines still using double-choke downdraught Solex carburetters. In view of the possible...

XIV Grand Prix de Monaco

A really convincing win for Moss Monte Carlo, May 13th. The Classic Grand Prix of Monaco, held through the streets of Monte Carlo, was once again for Formula 1 cars and counted in the World Championship series, being the second in the 1956 list. Naturally all the big factory teams entered, leaving very little room for private owners, and in view of the town circuit being short and narrow a...
