Dire straights...

…and the corners weren’t much better either. While we like to celebrate the great race tracks in history, some haven’t always met with universal approval.

The private owners in Grand Prix racing

GRAND Prix racing is essentially an activity for factories and industries, but there are always a few people who are prepared to join in even if they have no factory backing or very much hope of success. Occasionally Grand Prix racing reaches a high state of development and factory teams can fill all the entry lists and this is how it should be, for it is a technical exercise for the Research and...

B.R.S.C.C. Spring Meeting, Snetterton (March 19th)

The first race meeting of the season at Snetterton came at the end of a warm spell and icy winds blew across the airfield all day, interspersed with bouts of hail, snow and rain, and the occasional patch of sunshine. The B.R.S.C.C. of course, grew from the ½-litre Club and later the 500 Club, and naturally there was a race for the 500s, but it seems to be a token effort nowadays and only ten cars...

B.A.R.C. Easter Monday at Goodwood

Goodwood, Sussex. April 19th. The practice day on the Saturday of Easter weekend was blessed with mixed weather, so that times and starting-grid positions did not give a true indication of the possible outcome of the racing. The Formula One cars had two periods of practice, the first one dry and the second one wet, so that some drivers got caught out by reserving their big effort for the...

15th Grand Prix of Siracusa

Ferrari has a try-out—and wins Siracusa, Sicily, May 1st.

1965 International Gold Cup

But with the immediate years following the war, the ERA was campaigned with vigour by many private entrants against the measurably more powerful and up-to-date...

THE BANKING'S LOST GP SIR, The Monza Track Test what an evocative article. Andrew Frankel is correct in stating four World Championship Grands Prix have been held on the combined road and banked track circuit 1955-56 and '60 and '61. However the total was nearly five as it was planned to run the 1963 race over the full track. Problems started during first day's practice, after several drivers had...
