XXII Monaco Grand Prix

B.R.M. Sweeps the Board Monte Carlo, May 10th. Being the first of the Grand Prix classics for 1964 all the leading teams had hopes of fielding their latest cars all ready, tried and proven, but in fact only B.R.M. and Brabham were in this happy state of affairs.

IV Imola Grand Prix

Walk-over for Clark Imola, April 21st. Every year there are motorcycle races held on the Imola circuit, but not since 1956 has there been a car race, and that one was something of a classic event for it was the first time the Italian sporting world sat up and took note of the name Lotus.

Solitude Grand Prix

Stuttgart, July 28th A circuit that is made up from normal everyday roads, with climbs that bring an ordinary saloon down to 2nd gear, descents that make normal people apply the brakes, an 160 m.p.h. straight, corners from 30 m.p.h. to 130 m.p.h. and a length of 11.417 kilometres, all in a glorious wooded valley, is one that deserves a visit no matter what the type of racing is that is being held...

Continental notes

Jenks on Monza '67 Thinking that the worst of the traffic in central Europe would have died down at the beginning of September I made the mistake of cutting through Switzerland on my way from England to Italy.
