HE ROYAL GRAND PRIX E ARCANGELI WINNEI ON MASERA F all the races which are run nowadays the Royal Grand Prix of Rome approximates perhaps most nearly to the French Grand Prix races in their most flourishing days. It is an event for racing cars pure and simple, it is over a road circuit, which however, permits of higher speeds than are possible on the Sicilian circuit used for the Targa Florio,...

GREAT RACING MARQUES. V.-ALFA-ROMEO. By E. K. H. KARSLAKE. THERE is no better answer to the arguments which one frequently hears advanced against the usefulness of motor racing, than to quote the case of the Alfa-Romeo. Quite apart from the technical advances which are brought about by racing, it is a significant fact that while some five years ago the AlfaRomeo was a comparatively obscure...

The tangled tale of Tripoli

It has entered into motor sport legend that Achille Varzi conspired with others, including Tazio Nuvolari, to ‘fix’ the 1933 Tripoli GP – but the true story is far more subtle and complex Colonel Don Capps is a US Army Vietnam veteran, a lifelong motor racing fan, and a serious historian. Twelve years ago this magazine ran a story on the 1933 Tripoli GP. Nobody’s perfect – I can say that since...

At one time I was reticent about publishing photographs of fatal motor racing accidents in my books or in MOTOR SPORT. It seemed rather distasteful and even disrespectful. However, since William Court's interestingly morbid Grand Prix Requiem (Patrick Stephens 1992, £20) has been published and a contemporary magazine has used pictures of the horrible crash at Brooklands when Joseph Paul (not Hall...

Grand Prix Requiem, by Willam Court. Patrick Stephens, £20.00. This is rather an odd one! It is about how Grand Prix drivers died. Nigel Roebuck, asked to write the Foreword, thought at first it was a touch morbid. But Court's handling of death on the circuits (and sometimes off them) convinced him of the sincere purpose of the book, a celebration of a widely disparate group of men, some splendid...

Making it look easy

Many considered him a rich-kid racer in over his head. In the space of just two years, however, Auto Union were convinced he had the makings of a Champion. He refused their offer. Whitney Straight, explains Eoin Young, had much bigger fish to fly... Whitney Straight did everything in style. Barred from keeping a car at Cambridge, he kept a plane instead, cycling to the airfield, flying to races...

THE IRISH GRAND PRIX. The Second Day's Race.

THE IRISH GRAND PRIX. The Second Day's Race. THE second day's race, for cars over 1,500 c.c., will long be remembered as one of the most thrilling and closest struggles in the history of motor racing. For the first time in these islands we were able to see the tight for supremacy between Italy's two leading racing firms, Alfa-Romeo and Maser ati. Thundering on their heels were the two great...

The Grand Prix de Juan-1es Puis. This extremely sporting race over the Garoupe circuit on the Riviera provided yet another victory for Bugatti, the successful driver this time being Chiron. The entry list was a good one, as it included nine Bugattis, six of which driven by the French ace Chiron, the Englishman W. G. Williams, Bret, Trutschler, Drefus, and Ceresato, actually started. After them...
