1961 Team Drivers

With several new racing teams in the field for 1961 there is likely to be a shortage of drivers and some of the top drivers have still not joined their 1961 team. Ferrari has only retained Phil Hill, von Trips and Ginther, indicating that perhaps he will not be racing sports cars, while Cliff Allison has joined the new United Dominions Trust/Laystall team as the number one driver. Stirling Moss...

A Place in the History Books

Porsche has, to date, won just one World Championship grand Prix. The driver was Dan Gurney who now talks to Adam Cooper about the marque's troubled relationship with Formula One. Over the past few seasons in Formula One, Ferrari and McLaren have been embroiled in a battle for supremacy at the top of the all-time Grand Prix winners list. The current score is 119 to 116 in favour of the Italians,...

Broadley speaking

It is hard to pinpoint precisely when Eric Broadley went from being a special builder to becoming a constructor, but in 1958 he appeared with his Lola-Climax Mk1 and at the beginning of the 1959 season there were four of them and he was on his way. At the time 1100cc sports-car racing in Britain mast serious business, the equivalent of Formula Three today, and Lotus dominated by running works...

Back in the Saddle

When Lotus made their first tentative Formula One steps, Cliff Allison and the Nimble 12 scored the first points for this famous team. After 43 years apart, we reunited them. David Malsher reports Blip, blip, buzz — pause — clunk, sputter, sputter. This Lotus `queerbox' is in perfect condition. But it's still a sod. Next lap, into the first corner, there's a confident blip, blip, and a creamy...

Ferrari Celebration

Quite the most mouth-watering sight in the Spa-Francorchamps paddock during the weekend of the Belgian GP was magnate Albert Obrist's collection of sports-prototype racing Ferraris. They represented the period in which the marque scored its nine Le Mans triumphs, four at Daytona, eight in the Mille Miglia, nine in the Targa Florio and six in the Tourist Trophy. They brought the past back to date...

Le Mans Lotus returns to UK

A works Lotus Eleven which contested the 1956 Le Mans race and has been in the USA since that same year has returned to Britain. Chassis 211, powered by a Climax FWA, ran in the French classic in the hands of Cliff Allison and Keith Hall, but retired in the early hours of the Sunday morning after Allison collided with a dog which ran out in front of him. In November 1956, after repair, 211...

Silverstone snippets

Racing is only part of the Historic weekend: visitors needed strong legs to tour all the sights, car and star-spotting. There was a Jaguar re-union of 'Lofty' England, with Duncan Hamilton and Tony Rolt and the C-type with which they scored their memorable 1953 Le Mans win, immediately before David Brabham, one of the drivers of the GT class-winning X1220C at the Sarthe this year, took over the...

The other British F1 drivers

Reg Parnell was not strictly a works driver but raced Tony Vandervell's Ferrari 375 'Thinwall Special' to fourth place in the 1951 French Grand Prix. Roy Salvadori made a one-off appearance for Ferrari when he finished eighth in the 1952 British GP. Cliff Allison joined the Ferrari grand prix team in 1959 with Tony Brooks but with little success. In 1960 he finished second in Argentina but...

From the archives: Aston Martin's World Championship

Mission accomplished Aston Martin finally succeeded in winning the Le Mans 24-Hour Race, and the World Championship, in 1959, but to the huge disappointment of British fans David Brown immediately renounced sports-car racing in favour of Formula One, to develop the attractive DBR4 and DBR5 single-seaters which turned out to have already been rendered obsolete by the rear-engined Cooper-Climax....
