Jim Russell wins wet British Empire Trophy Race

The British Empire Trophy, one of Britain's oldest races has been held yearly except for the war years since 1932, but has seldom proved a racing or commercial success. The latest in the series, held as a F2 race on Saturday, April 11th, did little to disprove this reputation. The first Empire Trophy race was won by John Cobb in the 10-1/2-litre Delage on the Brooklands Outer Circuit at 126.36 m....

A Stirring V.S.C.C Oulton Park Meeting

Pre-War Mercedes-Benz Grand Prix Cars demonstrated. W. F. Moss drives fearlessly to win Seaman Trophies Race in his 1936 E.R.A. PRE-WAR RACING CAR. POST-WAR TRANSPORTER.—The sight and sound of the W125 G. P. Mercedes-Benz at Oulton Park aroused nostalgic memories on the part of those old enough to remember the Auto-Union/Mercedes-Benz battles at Donington. Almost as impressive was the 300 SL 100-...

Seventh T.T. For Moss

Britain's oldest motor race, the Tourist Trophy, held for the fourth time at Goodwood, received an entry which could hardly be called International and when no less than seven of the entries withdrew, the race lost much of its interest. The Ferraris of Seidel and Berney were withdrawn from the big-car class, as were the Jaguar E-types of McLaren and Wicken; the latter, not having shown...

Stanley Sears' Trophy meeting

Snetterton,  May 14th IF you speak of "glorious Goodwood" it is presumably permissible to refer to "scruffy Snetterton," but at the Norfolk circuit you can enjoy informal racing, run with great enthusiasm and attracting a pleasingly varied entry. Oliver Sear says his aim is to apply the same light-hearted club atmosphere as was found at Brooklands pre-war—a very laudable aim, although it should...

The E.R.A Club Dinner

The newly-formed E.R.A. Club had a very nostalgic assembly of pre- and post-war E.R.A. drivers at its first dinner, at the Public Schools Club in Piccadilly on March 2nd. Organised by the Hon. Sec., Barry Eastick, himself an ex-E.R.A. owner, A. F. Rivers-Fletcher took the chair and Raymond Mays and Humphrey Cook were guests of honour. Mays delivered a moving speech, recalling how he had initiated...

The B.A.R.C. Whitsun meeting

Tom Dickson in the Ecurie Ecosse Cooper-Climax Monaco Wins Big Sports-Car Race at 88.46 m.p.h. Before a disappointingly small crowd the B.A.R.C. Goodwood Meeting at Whitsun was run off with traditional efficiency in unexpected cold weather following a heat-wave over most of the holiday. The first race, the Cibie Cup 10-lap scratch eontest for four-seater closed cars, looked like a victory for...

The 20th International British Empire Trophy Meeting

Moss wins with works Aston Martin and equals Gerard's record Held on April 12th at its now traditional venue, the most excellent 2.76-mile road circuit at Oulton Park, Cheshire, the 20th International British Empire Trophy race provided an unexpectedly easy win for Stirling Moss, in a works-entered 3.9-litre DBR2 Aston Martin, after mechanical trouble had eliminated the only effective opposition...

Chequered history

The Chequered Flag was among the most visible race and rally teams of the '60s and '70s. Richard Heseltine catches up with former principal and wheeler-dealer Graham Warner Well that's progress for you. Earlier this year another slice of motor racing lore slipped away unobserved and without comment: the Chequered Flag on Chiswick High Road is no more, razed to make way for an apartment block....

But then, as is his way, forthright Frank Gardner threw this into the melting pot: "The fastest driver I ever sat with was Pete Ryan."

Forty years ago, Canada held its inagural Grand Prix. Stirling Moss took part, but the race was won by a 21-year-old hero. Less than 12 months later, Peter Ryan was dead. Paul Fearnley tells a what-if tale Canadian. Young. Quick. Fearless. Quality skier, too. Jacques Villeneuve, right? It could be, except it's not. The description instead refers to a man killed nine years before the 1997 champion...

Marcos

Although an instant success on the track, the Marcos had a far from trouble-free upbringing By Richard Heseltine / Photography by Howard Simmons As bad an idea as it so often is to judge a book by its cover, with the Marcos coupé, it’s hard to resist the temptation. That long, priapic nose, improbably low roofline and super-swoopy hind treatment coalesce into one of the most dramatic outlines...
