Road America

With only a week between the fifth and sixth rounds (and less than that to overhaul the machinery), a number of cars appeared at the Road America circuit in Wisconsin in far from perfect mechanical condition. The Shadow did not appear at all, although Elford did obtain a ride in an older but unsorted Lola T70. Another English driver making his second Can-Am appearance of the year was David Hobbs...

Can-Am—Revson clinches title

Laguna Seca, California, October 17th. Peter Revson won the Monterey-Castrol Grand Prix over the hilly, 1.9-mile Laguna Seca course in mid-October, but his fifth Can-Am victory of the year was marred by a total lack of competence on the part of the race organisers. After taking the lead at the start of the 90-lap, 171-mile event, Revson had little trouble seeing off his principal opposition—...

Daytona Six-Hours

Ferrari foremost again Daytona, Florida, February 6th. For a number of years a rather unnecessarily long 24-hour event, this year following the recent FIA ruling, the organisers of the Daytona event decided to shorten their race to a more compact six hours and consequently it did at least prove exciting in parts. This event remained as the second round of the World Manufacturers' Sports Car...

American Comment

The United States Auto Club has gone a long way toward putting its house in order by finally naming a full-time executive director to oversee all its operations and at the same time announcing that all engine sizes will remain unchanged for two years. The price of achieving this badly needed rules stability was the rejection of a Rules Committee recommendation (reported last month) that the size...

Around and about: comment on the racing and club scene

On the Can-Am trail While in North America last month for the Canadian and US Grands Prix I was lucky enough to have a week in between the two World Championship races to spend my time as profitably as possible. Looking through the American calendar I realised I had the choice of the USAC race at Trenton, New Jersey, or the Can-Am race at Edmonton way over in Western Canada. It was a hard...

Jochen Rindt Memorial Race

A Sunday afternoon drive for Ickx Hockenheim-Ring, Germany, June 13th With the ban on the Belgian Grand Prix by the CSI the Formula One world was faced with three clear weekends between Monte Carlo and the next event, due at Zandvoort. For some who were repairing the ravages of Monte Carlo this was a good thing, while others were taking the opportunity to enlarge their stock of 1971 material and...

Fragments on Forgotten Makes No. 11 : The A.V.

The A.V., which was in production at Teddington from 1919 to 1924, was a cyclecar pure and simple. Ward & Avey Ltd. bought the design from John Carden, who had evolved it before the war but who was obsessed with his £100 two-stroke cyclecar on returning to "civvy street." Production of this sporting-looking single-seater or monocar commenced in 1919 at a substantial factory in Somerset Road,...

American comment

The Sports Car Club of America has sold itself to television! Commencing with the Watkins Glen race, the balance of the Canadian American Challenge Cup Series will be telecast live across the length and breadth of the North American continent. The so for unpriced contract was awarded to Arutunoff Enterprises Inc., of Tulsa, Oklahoma, which has subbed out the production and direction of the...

Race of champions and surprises

Brands Hatch, March 18th. BRANDS HATCH'S Race of Champions has, for several years, started the European Formula One season but anyone looking for a pointer for the year from the results of the 1973 race can forget it—unless the lesson learned is that Formula One cars are going to be more unreliable than ever before. It turned out to be a quite extraordinary race during which the lead changed five...
