Sir, I commend you for your stand against bureaucratic control of the motorist. As an American motor enthusiast I have watched, through the window of your editorial and correspondence pages, the government of your country steadily approach the "...

European Letter

(By means of which our European reporter occasionally keeps in touch with the Editor.)

Over the past months we have heard various out-...

Calculators out...

Sir, While leafing idly through a current text-book of psychiatry. I read that disinclination to accept blame, violent criticism of others and a maniacal wish to be first may indicate a schizoid personality disorder. This may sound familiar to anybody who has watched and listened to the antics of the 1992 Grand Prix drivers. Turning now to something completely different, could any of your readers...

Around and about: comment on the racing and club scene

On the Can-Am trail While in North America last month for the Canadian and US Grands Prix I was lucky enough to have a week in between the two World Championship races to spend my time as profitably as possible. Looking through the American calendar I realised I had the choice of the USAC race at Trenton, New Jersey, or the Can-Am race at Edmonton way over in Western Canada. It was a hard...

Miniatures news

Grand Prix Models of 173-175, Wading Street, Radlett, Herts, can supply a big plastic kit which makes up into a very realistic and detailed Citroen 2cv. We understand it has been given a clean bill of health by a knowledgeable member of the Citroen OC and admirers of the imperturbable Deux Chevaux will love it. It is to 1:20 scale and the kit costs £1.80. The same firm has imported a 1/12th-scale...

Book Reviews

For the moment the flood of hooks about cars has slowed down but no doubt the tide will flow again around Christmas. For the present we have only "Passenger Vehicles-1893-1940" in the Olyslager Auto Library series, the joint work, as it were, of Denis N. Miller and Bart H. Vanderveen, the latter being the Editor. This landscape book with some 150 illustrations, many of them new, is best regarded...

Matters of moment

The Woolmark British Grand Prix We are becoming used to motoring surprises, such as a footballer opening the Motor Show, a footballer crewing a rally car, hot-drinks and perfume paying for F1 teams and an F3 driver stepping trimly into an F1 car after a single season's suceess. So, with "The Right Crowd" and gentlemen racing drivers in the main 30 years behind us, the shock of Woolmark...
