The S.M.M.T. and the Vanwall

It is generally conceded that in not requesting a Vanwall G.P. car for exhibition at the Earls Court Motor Show the S.M.M.T. did the Wrong Thing.

Individual Achievements 1957

A tribute to Ecurie Ecosse and Lotus Engineering by Denis Jenkinson A great deal is heard about personal triumphs, but probably the outstanding achievements by individuals during 1957 were the efforts of David Murray and Colin Chapman at Le Mans. I use the term individual loosely, for both gentlemen are the first to point out that their successes at Le Mans were entirely due to the work of a team...

Accept no limits

Physical disability was no barrier to racing success for Archie Scott Brown, one of the best-loved drivers in a golden age of motor sport By Nigel Roebuck Of late much has been written about Jimmy Clark, on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of his death, and an indication of his greatness frequently cited was his absolute domination at Spa-Francorchamps, in its fearsome original 8.76-mile...

The flying doctor on tour

Privateer racer Dr Tony Goodwin didn’t let RAF Service stand the way of his racing exploits, as his new book recalls Back in the late 1960s and early '70s, I found that race reporting was great — if immensely unprofitable — fun. It was wonderful to see real heroes in some of racing history's supreme cars doing battle round the Nürburgring, before it was — as Graham Hill succinctly put it —...
