Grand Prix of Pau

Pau, France, April 17th Just as the Brabham-Hondas ran away from everyone on the flat "grass-track" circuit of Goodwood, so they did on the climbing, twisting, turning, descending street-circuit of Pau.

Continental Notes

Now that we have had the first Grand Prix race of the year the alarms and excursions of who hopes to drive what car are over and 1968 season lies pretty clear ahead of us. Clark's win in the South African race with the Lotus 49 means that he has chalked up four Grand Prix wins in a row, the U.S.A. and Mexican races, the Spanish and now the South African, so it is not surprising that he is...

Men of Promise

A Dozen of Britain's brighter hopes for F.1 Motor Racing is a fascinating combination of man and his machine and should continue so for many years to come although it now seems possible that one day our scientists will be able to programme a computer to drive a racing car. The popular press often seems to be preoccupied by the man and to show a complete disregard for the very interesting machine...

THE 26th MONTE CARLO RALLY Mastery of Man Over Machine Gains Jaguar Victory MONTE CARLO, January 21st.

Why is Prost unappreciated?

Sir, Thank you for your Prost on Senna article (March) which I read with considerable interest as these two protagonists raced together in what I personally consider to be a true golden age of Formula 1. I feel they stood head and shoulders above the rest, but what is disappointing is the subsequent historical deification of one and the routine character assassination of the other. If you had...
