On something in English tradition

"Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few." — the prime minister, of the R.A.F. fighter pilots, 1940 THE firm of Rolls-Royce Ltd. is, perhaps, the most famous in the whole Motor Industry; indeed, it is so well known, and so highly respected, as to be virtually an institution. This was the case in the days before the last war with Germany, but it can fairly safely...

Letters from Readers

N.B. -Opinions expressed are those of our Correspondents and MOTOR SPORT does not necessarily associate itself with them. -Ed.Bring Back the E-type Sir, I have enjoyed the outpourings of your diminutive scribe D.S.J. for many years, especially with regard to his driving of Jaguars, which have been my own transport for 23 years. However, his comments in the April issue cannot pass unchallenged as...

Matters of moment

A miscellany of mishaps  "The answer is in the plural and they bounce" — Sir Edwin Landseer Lutyens, 1869-1944.  Most of the news one sees or reads about these days is distinctly depressing and that which has a motoring flavour is no exception. First, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Sir Geoffrey Howe, made "April fools" of us, as so many Chancellors have done before him. To increase vehicle-...

No need for cheating

In a patchy season BRM scored one memorable win, bringing hints of rule-bending. But the facts are there, if you want to look… My friend Simon Taylor’s Lunch With Robin Herd, the ‘h’ of March cars, in the March issue, included a cheerful throwaway line about Pedro Rodríguez’s winning BRM in the 1970 Belgian Grand Prix having used a 3.3-litre V12 engine – which would have been a desperate cheat,...

Matters of moment

Another lost cause?This royal throne of kings, this scepter'd isle, This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars, This fortress built by nature for herself, Against infection and the hand of war, This happy breed of men, this little world. This precious stone set in the silver sea, Which serves it in the office of a wall, Or as a moat defensive to a house, Against the envy of less happy lands, This...

"ALPHONSE"

" ALPHONSE " SOiVIE time ago I was considering the all-important question of the purchase of a car. The machine had got to be of as exciting a nature as possible, and of course, as ever, the price of it was not unlimited. So I set about thinking of what was the most stimulating motor I could rise to. I am very ready to admit that I have been vastly inspired by the modern racing car, slithering...
