Gentleman Jack

Sir, Congratulations on an excellent May issue. I Particularly enjoyed the two Brabham articles. As a boy in the 1960s I was lucky enough to see the great Australian race several times, both in F1 and F2. I didn't get to a championship Grand Prix though until 1970, Jack's final season, but what an impression he made on this 12-year old. At Brands he harried Rindt's Lotus for lap after lap, took...

The Gold Cup

The Gold Cup THE original intention of Mid-Cheshire M.R.C. was to run this year's Gold Cup race for Formula One cars with a few Formula Twos to make up the field. But with the race following a week after the rigours of M011"1.3 only six al the larger capacity were entered and half that number were presented for scrutineering. In contrast, most of the best 17.2 cars turned up, including the French...

Spansh Grand Prix

Madrid, Sunday, May 4th. Seasoned readers of Motor Sport will remember that the circuit at Montjuich Park close to the centre of Barcelona was first used for racing as long ago as 1933. But as a result of the Civil War it was not until 1966 that the enthusiastic Real Automovil de Cataluna decided to revive motor racing at this testing 3.8-kilometre circuit. Formula Two races were held that year...

XXII Monaco Grand Prix

B.R.M. Sweeps the Board Monte Carlo, May 10th. Being the first of the Grand Prix classics for 1964 all the leading teams had hopes of fielding their latest cars all ready, tried and proven, but in fact only B.R.M. and Brabham were in this happy state of affairs. The Bourne team had their two 1964 cars, with stressed-skin chassis, simplified front suspension with inboard-mounted coil springs,...

Solitude Grand Prix

Stuttgart, July 28th A circuit that is made up from normal everyday roads, with climbs that bring an ordinary saloon down to 2nd gear, descents that make normal people apply the brakes, an 160 m.p.h. straight, corners from 30 m.p.h. to 130 m.p.h. and a length of 11.417 kilometres, all in a glorious wooded valley, is one that deserves a visit no matter what the type of racing is that is being held...

Reflections

The continued dominance of Red Bull, the greatness of Sebastian Vettel... and the major teams’ unfathomable reluctance to capitalise on Nico Hülkenberg’s gifts As the Grands Prix roll by, I think back to a sunny afternoon in the Daytona paddock in January, and a conversation with Anthony Davidson about the Formula 1 season to come. I began by asking whom he tipped for the 2013 World Championship...

The Motor International Six-Hour Saloon-Car Race

Long-distance races have not, in recent years, attracted very much interest in this country; and with the steady down-grading of the Tourist Trophy race into little more than a shortish blind for G.T. cars round a Sussex airfield circuit, the sole remaining long-distance event in Britain until twelve months ago became the 750 M.C.'s Six-Hour Relay Race on the Club circuit at Silverstone—and this...

16th Grand Prix of Siracusa

A Ferrari demonstration Siracusa, Sicily, May 21st By changing the date of their Grand Prix from early in the season to after the first big Championship race the Ente Autonomo Circuito di Siracusa fell foul of clashing dates, with the result that a very small entry was received. Those who were not making money in Formula Two at Limburg were trying to make money at Indianapolis qualifying, and the...

Formula Two Review

Starting with the fifth round of the European F2 Trophy for non-graded drivers on August 23rd, Formula Two cars once again went through a period of extended exercise. The first race of August/ September "series" took place at the superfast speedbowl around the Lago Pergusa in the heart of Sicily. Once again – despite annual howls from the drivers that never again will they return – a good class...

Racing Notes

As these words are being read the South African G.P. will be taking place, this year at the Kyalami circuit and not at the usual East London one. (A full report will appear in February Motor Sport.) As the event is in the World Championship series this year, many teams have had to get organised very quickly, and there have been some interesting changes. Biggest surprise was Graham Hill leaving...
