Aston Errors

Sir, I read the Aston Martin Le Mans story (Motor Sport, June 1989) with great interest. However, I have to say that there are many errors, and it is very obvious that the author did not consult Chris Nixon's excellent two-volume book Racing With The David Brown Aston Martins. First, my friend and "office-sharer" Tadek Marek, who disliked motor racing, only ever worked on one of the racing...

The man who would be Kling...

... or Caracciola or Lang or Seaman... as good a driver as the men he built the cars from, Mercedes engineer Rudi Uhlenhaut was the unsung hero of the Silver Arrows. Chris Nixon looks back During testing at Barcelona last week, Patrick Head did 27 laps in the Williams Renault FW19, returning a best time of 1m19.15s, just 0.78 secs outside Jacques Villeneuve's fastest lap. It never happened, of...

Speaking up for spectators Sir, I am part of a motor racing team that goes round many circuits, but on this occasion I wish to ask for your support on behalf of the paying spectators, whom I feel get a very unfair deal from the circuits to which they pay a lot of money to attend. On the boat on my return from Spa, I met five intelligent 25-30 year old enthusiasts who asked me if I could tell them...

Rosemeyer! A new biography

by Elly Beinhorn Rosemeyer and Chris Nixon. (Transport Bookman Pubhcations Ltd, 8 South Street, Isleworth, Middlesex TW7 7BG Price £29.95p.) A lot of books about pre-war motor racing, in my view, suffer from narratives rather akin to telephone directories; they offer a lot of detail without actually telling you what things were like. Prior to reading this volume I knew of only two books which...
