Gran Premio D'Europa - Pirelli Win Italian Grand Prix

Monza. September 2nd THIS year the Italian Grand Prix took the title of the Grand Prix of Europe and was held as usual at the Monza Autodromo near Milan. This event was the last in the 1956 World Championship series and for that matter the last serious Grand Prix event of the year, so everyone, with the exception of BRM and Bugatti, were out for a final win-or-bust effort, knowing that the rest...

The Swedish Grand Prix

A Maserati Victory Kristianstad, August, 11th. Although the race in Sweden was entitled Grand Prix, it was for sports-cars and had the importance of counting towards the Manufacturers' Championship. Held on the same narrow bumpy circuit as in previous years, the race differed only in that this year it was for a period of six hours, instead of 1,000 kilometres, it being felt that a time race would...

The Ulster Tourist Trophy

A Hard-Fought Victory for Mercedes-Benz  Belfast, September 17th. For the first time the Ulster T.T. became a straightforward, simple race, in which the first car to cover 84 laps of the Dundrod circuit would be adjudged the winner of the Tourist Trophy, presented by the R.A.C. In the past, complicated handicapping systems have invariably resulted in lack of public interest as well as lack of...

Continental Notes

There is a rule in Grand Prix racing that allows a team manager to change his drivers from one car to another during a race, providing, of course, that this is done at the pits, and with the World Championship events this is frequently done, not only in an attempt to gain a victory, but to keep the top drivers supplied with points. In many ways this is a reasonable regulation, but in other ways...

42nd TARGA FLORIO

Ferrari Wins But Porsche The Moral Victors PALERMO, SICILY, May 11th. WITH all the flap-doodle in Italy about racing on the public roads, the Sicilians were quick to profit from the suppression of the Mile Miglia and Vicenzo Florio and his organising committee did some valiant work in their efforts to hold the Targa Florio on its traditional mountain circuit. Not only were they successful but...

XIX Grosser Preis von Deutschland

Fangio The Supreme Master Aden U (Eifel), August 4th. Once again the Grand Prix teams of cars and drivers came together to pit their skill and endurance against the fabulous Nurburgring, for the German G.P. is seldom a split-second race of driver against driver, but more often the result of car/driver combination against the 22.810 kilometres of the Eifel mountain circuit. While there are many...

The 43rd Grand Prix De L'A.C.F.

Fangio the Master Rouen, July 7th. After trying for many years, the Automobile Club Normand at last succeeded in wresting the French Grand Prix away from the Automobile Club du Champagne, and this year's race was held on the wonderful natural road circuit of Rouen-Les Essarts. This circuit is without question the finest in France and approaches the Spa circuit for the ultimate in Grand Prix...

Continental Notes

Before the International Trophy meeting at Silverstone the Scuderia Ferrari were rapidly making history, for out of nine events in which the factory team competed they won eight, these being the Argentine, Mendoza, Agadir, Dakar, Sebring, Giro Sicilia, Syracuse and the Mille Miglia. Their only defeat was by Maserati in the 1,000-kilometre race at Buenos Aires, and everything pointed to 1956 being...

Rumblings

Historic As any publicity chap will tell you, Fangio drove a 250F Maserati, and, as most Maserati owners will tell you, Fangio drove their particular one, but if the Maserati in question is a 1956 model then it is most unlikely that Fangio drove it, for that year he was driving for Ferrari. In spite of all the history of Maserati racing cars being documented you only have to produce a 250F model...
