The Gold Cup

Grand Prix in the North Oulton Park, August 17th.

In order to avoid clashes with other important events the annual Gold...

III Gran Premio de Mexico

Mexico City, Sunday, 25th Twice since the World Drivers' Championship was started, the last race has been the deciding factor between two drivers: In 1958 at Casablanca it was between Moss and Hawthorn, while in 1962 at East London, South Africa, it was between Clark and G. Hill. Both these races were exciting due to the added anticipation of deciding the Championship. Also on both occasions it...

Those Maseratis from Australia

Sir, I was particularly interested in your comments regarding the appearance of two ex-Australian Maseratis on English circuits in your report of the Silverstone meeting on April 24th, June issue. It appears that there is some misunderstanding regarding the history of these cars and I would like to clear this up. You mention that both Colin Crabbe and A. C. M. Millar claim their respective cars...

Hit the jackpot

1960: FIVE CONSECUTIVE GP VICTORIES Lotus seemed to be holding all the aces, only to be trumped by Cooper's 'Black Jack'.

1970 British Grand Prix race report - An RAC Nonsense

  Following the Dutch GP and the French GP, both of which are reported elsewhere in this issue, the anticipation of a great race for the British Grand Prix, held on the long circuit at Brands Hatch, was in everyone's mind as the contestants assembled for the Thursday practice. The 12-cylinder Ferraris and 12-Cylinder Matras had been getting closer and closer to victory, the 12-cylinder BRMs had...

Francorchamps Monologue

The Belgian Grand Prix "Stand back, they are all going off on a warm-up lap. Bonnier is very late starting; something wrong with a rear-wheel fixing; did his mechanic strip the studs?" "Here they all come, lining up on the 'dummy-grid' now. They will have to wait for Bonnier; after all, he is the G.P.D.A. President, they could hardly start the race without him." "There's the 1-min. board; what a...

GKN Daily Express International Trophy

Fittipaldi wins after Hailwood retires Silverstone, April 23rd. In years gone by the Silverstone International Trophy meeting was THE non-championship Formula One event of the season. The entry was often comparable with almost any Grand Prix and Silverstone's fast circuit provided some fierce and memorable battles. It just isn't like that any more and this year's event attracted the smallest...

Gnoo Blas

Track visit Introduced as a rival to Bathurst, just down the road, Gnoo Blas was a scarily fast road circuit in New South Wales. Jim Scaysbrook rediscovers the racetrack they pronounced 'Noo Blah. Rivalry is one of the prime tenets of motorsport. But in the case of the long defunct Gnoo Bias circuit in Orange, 177 miles west of Sydney, motor racing was simply the common factor in an intense...

The International Trophy Meeting - Silverstone

Motor Racing Variety Silverstone, September 14th Under normal circumstances the Daily Express sponsored meeting at Silverstone is held in May, but this year the petrol rationing frightened the organisers into postponing their race meeting until a suitable date could be found.
