Greene Cars

Only two Gilbys were ever built, an 1,100 cc sports car and a 1½-litre F1 car. Both were well designed, attractive, and prepared to the highest standards, yet in terms of absolute success, they merit no more than a footnote in motor racing history. What the project represented, though, is much more important. They were among the very last cars to be built and raced by a privateer with the object...

South African Grand Prix

Kyalami, Johannesburg, April 7th Early season Formula One form can frequently be misleading, but be that as it may the McLaren International team caught all its rivals off guard in the first two events of the 1984 Championship calendar. Two weeks after Alain Prost opened the year with victory in the Brazilian grand Prix at Rio de Janeiro, the Porsche-built, TAG-engined McLaren MP4/2s enacted an...

Bricking it at Club Corner

It just isn’t sensible to leave brick-built walls lying around in the middle of a motor race circuit. As Molesworth would have put it “…as everbody kno”. But the self-evident hazards of such an exercise were regarded as A Good Idea back in 1952 when the Club Corner chicane was introduced at Goodwood, to slow and deflect race traffic away from a trajectory which had seen them drifting round the...

The French Grand Prix

Very Wet Rouen-Les-Essarts, France, July 7th After the upheaval in French motoring circles last winter, when the F.F.S.A. took control of the sport from the A.C.F., a statement was issued that there would not be a further Grand Prix de l'A.C.F., which many people took to mean that there would be no French Grand Prix, but later the F.F.S.A. put out a notice that they would be running the first...

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...

Portuguese Grand Prix

Brabham Yet Again Porto, August 14th This year it was the turn of the Portuguese Grand Prix to go north to the town of Porto, where the race was held in 1958, and the same 7.407-kilometre circuit was used, unchanged from two years ago. I then considered it a true road-racing circuit and I still do, being fast (over 110-mph average) and containing all the hazards of a true road race, especially...

VII Grande Premio de Portugal

A Real Road Race Porto, August 24th Although six previous Portuguese Grand Prix events have been held, starting in 1950 and fluctuating between the Porto circuit and the Lisbon circuit, they have all been for sports cars and, strictly speaking, not Grand Prix races at all. This year a full-scale Formula I event was organised and, in addition, it formed a round in the Drivers' World Championship...

Formula One: The Italian Grand Prix

Renault all the way Monza, Italy, September 13th In these rather unsettled days it was nice to get back to the Monza track, the true home of the Italian Grand Prix. It looks as though common sense is going to prevail over big business and the Italian Grand Prix is to stay at the Monza track, while the San Marino Grand Prix will be run at the new, and very satisfactory, Imola track. There were no...

A GRAND PRIX has been held in South Africa since 1934, but in those days it was rather a local affair run on handicap; however, it always attracted a few European drivers as it was held at the end of the year in Europe's mid-winter, which is Africa's mid-summer. It was not until 1962 that the race achieved World Championship status, the race being run on the traditional East London circuit, which...

Race of Champions

A Great Day for Anglo-American Racers Brands Hatch, March 12th: With the help of the Daily Mail newspaper the B.R.S.C.C. revived their Race of Champions, which was first organised in 1965, and they gathered in an excellent entry of Grand Prix cars and drivers, the only notable omissions being the works teams of Lotus and B.R.M. Details of the cars and drivers are enlarged upon in a separate...
