Alfas up again There is always something new from Africa, and those two ferocious Grand Prix races, one in Tripoli and one in Tunisia, which took place last month, reveal a new and more healthy situation in big-car racing. After a period of complete, albeit well-deserved, domination by the two German marques, the 12cylinder Alfa-Romeo has at last arrived and the results of the two races show it...

VALUE FOR MONEY AT BROOKLANDS The J .C.C. Members' day at Brooklands is a really excellent day's sport in every way from the viewpoint of the competitor, and we have no excuse to offer for reporting the happenings of June 27th from that angle. It so happened that J. Eason-Gibson had shortly beforehand been deprived of his licence, and he accordingly suggested that a representative of MOTOR SPORT...

The real ALPINE TRIAL 1933

The real ALPINE TRIAL 1933 Alpine In recent times many retrospectives of former important competition events have been held, for classic and other cars. They are commendable in that they provide good sport with a flavour of the past for those who take part, and perhaps they enhance the value of some of the cars so publicised. But none of them, for a variety of rather obvious reasons, can quite...

fl II. Itumbuings That 273 m.p.h. IT is a permanent regret of mine that I have not had the good fortune of being present at one of Sir Malcolm Campbell's record-breaking runs at Daytona Beach. When you come to think of it there must be very few Englishmen who have had this unique experience. I was recently talking to a man who went over with Segrave when the latter recorded 203 m.p.h. with the...

THE LAND'S END ON "ORDINARIES" FINE WEATHER AND DRY HILLS; BLUICHILLS MINE CAUSES THE GREATEST NUMBER OF FAILURES THE weather cleared up just in time for the Land's End Trial, and 194 car drivers enjoyed a glorious run to the West country. The hills were all dry, with the exception of Crackington and Hustyn, which have their own sources of moisture, but only sixty-four competitors were in the end...

Heartiest Congratulations IT'S great news that Charlie Dodson is being given a trial by Auto-Union, with a view to a place being made for him in the Grand Prix team. Of course, everyone would like to see a driver of Dodson's calibre at the wheel of a car produced by his own country, but an artist's style should never be cramped, and one rather expects an Auto-Union to be more rapid than anything...

The Wartime Diaries of an RFC Officer

Continued from the Dec. 1979 issue Before I commence another instalment of these old diaries I must refer to a letter received from a Mr. J. Ross of Brigg, in which he makes it dear that I have done our RFC pilot out of one type which he had flown by 1915. In his Log Book entries there is no distinction made between AW (Armstrong Whitworth)-built BE2c aeroplanes and FK3s built by that Company,...

THE BLACKPOOL FINAL TESTS THE first test, immediately on arrival, took the form of an acceleration test over a quarter-mile, timed by A. V. F,bblewhite, followed by an eighty yard area in which cars had to come to a standstill. The faster cars had to do some extremely heavy braking and we consider that the test was instructive and a definite test of cars, as against the circus type of test...
