Sixth Grand Prix of Mexico

Clark all the Way Mexico City, October 22nd. Twenty entries were invited for this year's Mexican Grand Prix, which took place at the same time as the Mini-Olympics. Of the 20, 19 were all ready for the first four-hour practice session on Friday afternoon, the one missing car being the Cooper down to be driven by Rindt. This was withdrawn due to a haggle over starting money which the Austrian...

Snetterton "International"

September 17th ON September 17th the Snetterton Motor Racing Club organised the first International meeting. Regrettably, through no fault of the organisers, it was International in name only, but nevertheless a good sized crowd saw some very good racing between the majority of the major British competitors in Grand Prix racing, only the works Cooper team being absent. The meeting opened with the...

The German Grand Prix

BRABHAM WORKS HARD Nurburgring, Germany, August 7th. THE Automobile Club von Deutschland, who organise the German Grand Prix at the Nurburgring, were rather afraid that they would not get enough Formula One cars to make up a good starting grid and to keep the 22.8-kilometre circuit occupied for 15 laps sufficiently to satisfy the spectators, so they invited eleven Formula Two entries. These...

Pot of gold

Despite laughable budgets and two serious shunts, John Watson finally got the F1 chance he deserved. Paul Fearnley retraces the Ulsterman's torturous route to that first GP win Bill Ivy breezed into top-flight motor racing. The chirpy biker with the fashionably straggly hair roared into Thruxton's paddock aboard his beloved Maserati Ghibli, fired off a few wisecracks, plonked his backside into an...

If you were lucky enough to have been in attendance at last year's Goodwood Motor Circuit Revival Meeting then the emphasis we have placed on its return in 1999 will come as no surprise to you. If you didn't manage to take that step back in time then you may just be wondering what all the fuss is about. Hopefully, over the following pages, we will be able to explain all. Goodwood has an...

Races in Sicily

THE Automobile Club of Enna, the small town in the centre of Sicily, in the heart of the mountains, held their annual Speed Week in August.

27th German Grand Prix

Clark and Lotus all the way THE Automobil Club von Deutschland organised the German Grand Prix on the hilly and tortuous 22.81-kilometre Nürburgring in the Eifel mountains and at the last moment they reduced the number of practice sessions from four to three, although two of the sessions were of two hours duration and the third was for one and a half hours. The difficulty at the Nürburgring is...

1965 British Grand Prix race report - A close thing

  This year the R.A.C. sold the rights of the British Grand Prix to the British Racing Drivers' Club and they enlisted the support of the Daily Express to organise the event at Silverstone. While the airfield circuit is not the best of places for a Grand Prix, it has a pleasant atmosphere and has been the scene of many British GP events in the past, as well as being the traditional home of...

Whitsun 1966

Bank holidays may be troublesome institutions no longer worth preserving but Whitsun in England is still a good time of year. Easter is too uncertain climatically, August too caught up in the turmoil of longer holidays, but at Whitsun the weather is often tolerant—this year, as in 1965, it was very fair indeed. From the motoring aspect I find it amusing that whereas last Whitsun I had trouble (...
