Fragments on forgotten makes

No. 33-The Bean. The Bean Car Club may not thank me for calling the Bean a "forgotten make" but I am sure they will know what I mean! It was a make intended to be built in mass-produced quantities but which never really made the grade. A. Harper, Sons & Bean Ltd. was a company, registered in 1907, which supplied the growing motor industry with stampings, castings and forgings from Dudley,...

RUMBLINGS

If Winter Comes . . . ALTHOUGH we should really be shaking the moth from our leather waistcoats and getting down to Monte Carlo Rally schedules, that great Grand Prix at Donington is difficult to forget and enthusiasts this autumn seem to weakly disregard the coming winter and to talk happily of the next racing season. Racing under the new Formula will be extremely interesting. New cars are...

Small Is Beautiful

You know that Copse is quick, always have known it. And it became more of a challenge a few years ago, when they did away with the Silverstone short circuit beloved of slipstreaming Formula Fords (remember them arriving several abreast at the old Woodcote?), and added a few new fiddly bits suited to greater purity of racing line than the old who-can-be-last-on-the-brakes right-hander.

To The Top Of Ben Nevis

BEN NEVIS CLIMBED AGAIN.

BEN NEVIS CLIMBED AGAIN. Ben Nevis, Great Britain's highest mountain, which was climbed recently by a Ford car, has again been conquered. The successful vehicle was a 5 h.p. Ariel sidecar combination, which carried a passenger in addition to the driver.
