Continental Notes

That go-ahead club, the B.R.S.C.C., under the direction of Nick Syrett, last month took the bull by the horns and made a stand against the bureaucracy of the R.A.C. and the F.I.A. on the subject of the capacity limits for long distance racing. It will be recalled that the day after the Le Mans 24-hour race a group of men representing the sporting interests of their countries got together and...

Portuguese Grand Prix

Wheel of misfortune   What more does Nigel Mansell have to do to win the World Championship? It was the question that sprang most readily to mind as one watched him, three-wheeled, impotently punching the steering wheel, as his Williams sat stricken in the Estoril pit lane. In literal terms, the task that faced him after the Portuguese GP far outweighed any figurative allusions. One moment his...

10th South African Grand Prix

Clark Wins Seventh World Championship Race East London, Saturday, December 28th, 1963. Once again the final race in the World Championship series of Formula One events took place at East London on the warm sunny South East coast of Africa. However, unlike last year, the race was to mean nothing in placings for both drivers' and manufacturers' championships. The circuit was unaltered since 1962...

Nigel Roebuck

Legends: Alan Jones doesn't get the acclaim due to him. Would he, had he not decided to retire at the height of his F1 powers? Whenever we recall great drivers past, it seems the same names always crop up: Fangio, Moss, Clark and Stewart are staples of the 1950s and '60s, and more recently we think of Lauda, Prost, Senna and Schumacher. But there are others who don't come to mind quite as...

Fifties fliers

We greatly enjoyed GC's vivid description of the Pirelli Classic Marathon, and congratulate him and Henry Pearman on their impressive victory. If Motor Sport readers feel, however, that the Jaguar crew had a hard time, they might spare a thought for a group of Forties and Fifties-designed 1 1/2-litre family saloons which fought a battle royal a little further down the field. We refer to the Riley...

1963 British Grand Prix race report - Clark (Lotus-Climax) uncatchable

  Silverstone, July 20th Amidst a veritable feast of racing and circus stunts, that went on for a long and full day, the BRDC were able to organise the British Grand Prix that ranked as a Grande Epreuve, and they offered some 115,000 spectators more than their money's worth. With two and a half weeks since the last Formula 1 race the Grand Prix teams not only had plenty of time to prepare their...

Grand Prix of United States

Watkins Glen, Sunday October 4th. Watkins Glen was once again the venue for the U.S. Grand Prix, the ninth in the 1964 World Championship series. In this, one of the most beautiful settings for any Grand Prix, the sixth United States Grand Prix was scheduled for October 4th.

The Reims 12-Hour Race

A Nice French Event Reims, France, June 24/25th.  Coming only two weeks after the Le Mans 24-Hour Race, the Reims meeting could have suffered from a poor entry, but as it turned out it was a highly successful gathering of private owners and small factory entries that provided a most interesting race. The start was at midnight on Saturday, in the brightly lit pit area, with the 34 starters lined...
