Junior highs and lows...

As an IRL driver coach, Al Unser Jr has found a way to leave his problems behind and give something back to the sport in which he’s achieved so much By Gordon Kirby Through the height of CART’s Indycar World Series, Al Unser Jr was one of the men to beat.

A pioneer Welsh-built monoplane

As "The Diaries of an RFC Officer" are arousing a gratifying amount of interest and as Motor Sport once covered mechanised sporting events in the air as well as on land and water, I thought that a little more reporting with an aeronautical flavour would not come amiss.

V.E.V. Miscellany.

Number two of a Doncaster Gazette publication called "Old Doncaster", available for 3s. from 10, North Bridge Road, Doncaster, contains contrasting pictures of scenes in that city over the past 60 years. There is a view of the factory in which Cheswold cars...

Rolls-Royce's rivals

Rolls-Royce's rivals There is great interest in the history of Rolls-Royce, especially when Sir Henry Royce was responsible for its perfection and it was an all-British car. Through the assistance of Peter Baines, Secretary of the R-R EC, I am able to divulge some more details of how Henry Royce compared his productions with other, possibly mildly rival, makes. He did not ignore the notable...
