Easter Racing at Goodwood and Brands Hatch

The B.A.R.C. obtained an excellent entry of 127 cars for its International Easter Race Meeting at Goodwood. The programme embraced the appearance of two each of Britain's Grand Prix cars in one race, with the additional interest of a race for the new FII cars and the possibility that these unblown 1,500s might even "mix-it" with the F1 machinery on the twisty Sussex circuit. Saturday practice was...

Breezed in, blown out

With its young millionaire backer, Scirocco looked set to whip up a storm in F1. Gordon Cruickshank explains why it didn't Next time you chive down the Goldhawk Road in West London, stop at the Seven Stars pub and lift a glass to the old truism that if you want to make a small fortune out of motor racing, start with a large one. For it was behind this establishment that large amounts of money...

1962 & '68 Graham Hill

The little grey autograph book was lost many years ago. No great loss. Even as a young child I never quite understood the fascination in collecting a signature. My book contained only two: Peter Purves’, which wasn’t much good because of course John Noakes’ was the one to have; and Tim Piggot-Smith’s. I hadn’t a clue who he was, someone must have pointed me at the actor at some local show or...

A charmed life

Alan Brown, who died earlier this year, wheeled and dealed his way through single-seaters and sports cars. Mike Lawrence remembers the colourful career of a true 1950s all-rounder Alan Brown was a Formula Three champion, the first man to win World championship points for Cooper, and the first to race a Vanwall. He was also a Formula One constructor (the man behind the Emerysons of 1961-62) and a...

Guide To Historic Sports Racing Cars 1950-1970

Since 1923, when Charles Faroux organised the first Le Mans 24 Hours, it has been the principal aim of serious sports car manufacturers to both compete and win at the classic Sarthe circuit. Other events like the Mille Miglia and Targa Florio were almost, but not quite, of equal importance, but have fallen by the wayside — rightly or wrongly — as victims of hysterical human emotion.

Letter from Italy

Brief encounters Dear AH, There is something about Italy. On the way to Imola I was creeping round the Bologna ring road in solid traffic, and not enjoying myself, so I turned off to use the old Via Emilia, rather than the Autostrada. At least there is something to see when creeping along on the ordinary roads, whereas on an Autostrada it is merely tin boxes and lorries, with the occasional...
