Credit where it's overdue

Nino Vaccarella is remembered as a Targa Florio specialist, when in fact he won all the big events in sports car racing’s golden age By Michael Oliver We’d wager that Nino Vaccarella wouldn’t immediately spring to mind if you were asked to draw up a list of great sports car racers. A Targa Florio specialist surely, we hear you say, a one-trick pony. But consider this: Vaccarella is one of only...

Gran Premio D'Europa - Pirelli Win Italian Grand Prix

Monza. September 2nd THIS year the Italian Grand Prix took the title of the Grand Prix of Europe and was held as usual at the Monza Autodromo near Milan. This event was the last in the 1956 World Championship series and for that matter the last serious Grand Prix event of the year, so everyone, with the exception of BRM and Bugatti, were out for a final win-or-bust effort, knowing that the rest...

The Swedish Grand Prix

A Maserati Victory Kristianstad, August, 11th. Although the race in Sweden was entitled Grand Prix, it was for sports-cars and had the importance of counting towards the Manufacturers' Championship. Held on the same narrow bumpy circuit as in previous years, the race differed only in that this year it was for a period of six hours, instead of 1,000 kilometres, it being felt that a time race would...

XVIIIth Grand Prix of Monaco

Moss is Supreme Monte Carlo, May 29th. Being the first major Grand Prix of the European season, everyone was out in full force and the entry list was one of the most interesting seen for some time. The B.R.M. team had three of their 1960 rear-engined cars, with Bonnier, Gurney and Graham Hill as drivers; Cooper had their two 1960 ears in the hands of Brabham and McLaren, these new cars looking...

A Place in the History Books

Porsche has, to date, won just one World Championship grand Prix. The driver was Dan Gurney who now talks to Adam Cooper about the marque's troubled relationship with Formula One. Over the past few seasons in Formula One, Ferrari and McLaren have been embroiled in a battle for supremacy at the top of the all-time Grand Prix winners list. The current score is 119 to 116 in favour of the Italians,...

German Grand Prix

Some Man's Motor Racing Nurburgring, Germany, August 3rd. After the 1,000-kilometre race in June, when Siffert set the fastest lap of the Nürburgring in practice at 8 min. 00.2 sec. with a Porsche 908, and Amon did 8 min. 00.3 sec. with the Ferrari 312P, I remarked that no self-respecting Grand Prix driver would be content with a lap sit over 8 minutes if practice for the Grand Prix would be held...

IV Mexican Grand Prix - Honda Win

Mexico City, October 24th This year's Mexican Grand Prix contrasted drastically from last year in so far as in the last race for 1964 the Championship was not decided, while far 1965 the Championship had been clinched back in August at the German Grand Prix. Of the three drivers whose fortunes were in the balance until the last lap drama 12 months ago, the champion was unable to return this year...

Continental Notes

PEOPLE who visit a Continental motor race for the first time are invariably impressed by the " atmosphere," which is so different from that at English race meetings, for whereas Goodwood and Silverstone take on a delicate " Garden Party " or " Village Fete " atmosphere before the start, the Continental races are usually more of a riotous orgy of music and merry-making.

10th United States Grands Prix

Watkins Glen, N.Y., October 6th Two weeks after the Canadian Grand Prix held in the ski country north of Montreal the Grand Prix "circus" moved south-west into the holiday area of Upper New York State. The village of Watkins Glen gave open-armed welcome to all race-goers, as it does every year, and, as usual, organisation was of the high standard set in previous years. The technical building had...

These days, the simple way is to fly direct to Palermo from London, Paris or wherever you may be, or you can drive to Naples on the autostrada and take an overnight boat to Palermo, with your car on the deck or in the hold, depending on its size, or you can...
