The Dutch Grand Prix

Clark, Lotus and Climax Uncatchable Zandvoort, Holland, May 24th. The organisation of the Dutch Grand Prix this year was undertaken by the N.A.V., a sporting association acting on behalf of the K.N.A.C., rather like the B.R.D.C. running the British Grand Prix for the R.A.C., and this new organisation invited a carefully selected field of eighteen drivers to take part. It went without saying that...

The road-test round

Or finding out how the other half motors The heading does not infer that Motor Sport has been testing a Dynasphere, that remarkable rolling cage with the driver slung within it, which was demonstrated to an incredulous public at Brooklands in 1932; it refers simply to the routine of sampling new motorcars; which is one of the nicer aspects of the motoring writer's life. I am sometimes asked why a...

Reflections on the Italian Grand Prix

It is amazing, there are still people who say they do not like Monza and that they do not want to go there again, and yet once more we saw the most exciting and close racing that anyone could wish to see. If we visit a twisty circuit, where driving ability counts more than engine power and one man (or two) runs away from everyone else, there are moans about dull, boring processions. At Monza this...

Rumblings

The BDC Museum.—We don't know what made us think about the private museum of the Bentley DC unless it was driving a Ford Escort RS, which, like a vintage Bentley, has a four-cylinder sixteen-valve engine. Anyway, the Editor realised that he had never visited it, although he passes through the pleasant village of Long Crendon, above Thame, where the Club's offices are situated, on his back route...

XXI Belgian Grand Prix

A fine win for Lotus Spa, Belgium, June 17th. The wonderful 14.1-kilometre circuit that runs between Francorchamps, Malmedy and Stavelot, in the hills near Spa, needs little introduction to followers of Grand Prix racing, and this year everyone was looking forward to the Belgian G.P. with keen anticipation as it was to be the first time that the new British Grand Prix V8 engines could be wound up...

Mat Oxley – MotoGP

Few were in Ivy's league Forty summers ago, Britain lost one of its greatest exponents of two- and four-wheel motor sport. If Billy Ivy hadn’t been killed in practice for the 1969 East German motorcycle Grand Prix, he might have gone on to match John Surtees’ unique achievement of winning World Championships both in cars and on motorcycles. Ivy won the 1967 125cc world title and quit bikes at the...

36th Italian Grand Prix

That Apprentice from Scotland Monza, Italy, September 12th With no major Grand Prix race since the German Grand Prix at the beginning of August, the factory teams had plenty of time to prepare themselves for the annual high-speed race at Monza, on the 5.75-kilometre road circuit. A very full entry was received and Lotus, Brabham, Ferrari and Centro-Sud fielded three-car teams, the Ferrari one...

The Driver's Job

—It has changed During a recent discussion on Grand Prix racing we fell to discussing drivers, past and present, and the inevitable Fangio, Moss, Clark, Stewart battle raged. We agreed that as Stewart had never raced a front-engined Grand Prix car, and Fangio had never raced a little rear-engined car, they could not be compared. However, we wondered if this was reasonable and one faction thought...

Obituaries

Bernard Cahier Renowned Formula 1 photographer Bernard Cahier has died aged 81. Between the photos of Bernard – which he started taking of F1 in 1952 – and his son Paul-Henri, the Cahiers have chartered almost the entire history of the sport. Ron Dennis expressed his sadness at his passing, but reminded us that his death was also a “momentous occasion, because, although the word ‘legend’ is often...
