Few realised then that more air was...

Mallory Spark

Jim Clark had yet to etch his name on the broader racing conscience by the spring of 1959, but four victories in one afternoon were a hint of greatness to comeWriter: Richard Williams Its paintwork so dark that on a murky day the green could have been taken for black, the big Lister-Jaguar appeared to flex its shoulders as it powered through the downhill left-hand kink before the pit straight....

Brands Hatch – Inter-Continental

The 200-mile Guards Trophy race at Brands Hatch on August 7th may well be the final fling of the Inter-Continental Formula. This rather mis-named formula, which has seen little foreign opposition for the British cars, has taken a poor second place to the new Formula 1. Stirling Moss, who has won three Inter-Continental races so far (Goodwood and the two Silverstone races) will once again drive...

Stanley Sears' Trophy meeting

Snetterton,  May 14th IF you speak of "glorious Goodwood" it is presumably permissible to refer to "scruffy Snetterton," but at the Norfolk circuit you can enjoy informal racing, run with great enthusiasm and attracting a pleasingly varied entry.

Lunch with John Coombs

That he ran so many top-line drivers is proof of how successful a car entrant John Coombs was. Today, in his eighties, his enthusiasm for enjoying classic machinery still burns bright By Simon Taylor Motor racing’s history is peppered with significant private entrants – highly professional operators who were content to provide cars for others to race, in return for the joy of being involved. In...

Continental Notes

This continual winning by British Formula 1 cars is something we have all been waiting for, and, personally, I have been waiting 25 years for this to happen. No matter whether it is Vanwall beating all-comers at Monza, or B.R.M. beating a lot of also-runs at Silverstone, they are Formula 1 victories by British cars, and that to me is a state of affairs on which we cannot improve. There are people...
