Seeing The Finer Points

I recently came across the following paragraph in a 1931 edition of MOTOR SPORT, in a race meeting report: "The fact that the good driving produced less applause than the few instances of wild skidding is a pity, but can only be expected when road racing events are so rare and the general public has not learnt to appreciate the finer points of the game."

Sports Cars at Spa

Ferrari Defeated by Tyre Trouble After the cancellation of the Belgian Grand Prix, the Royal Automobile Club of Belgium realised what a waste of a good circuit this cancellation was causing, and subsequently organised a race for sports cars over a duration of three hours.

The Sanremo Rally

Les vingt - quatre heures du Mans

A review THERE is little point at this late stage after the Le Mans 24 hour race in giving a lap by lap or hour by hour detailed account of the event; it is sufficient to précis the major happenings between 4 p.m. on Saturday, June 21st and 4 p.m. on Sunday, June 22nd, and then look more closely into the why's and wherefore's of the event.

Highs and lows

Mansell finally took a record ninth win in a for Williams-Renault, but politics and Patrese's accident marred the victory No 1992 Grand Prix quite so encapsulated Formula One as it now is, than Portugal. Very much, the weekend in Estoril was one of highs and lows. Since Monza, Nigel Mansell had, of course, made his lndycar bed. The signs in Portugal were that he was more than happy to lie on it....
