1,000 kilometres of Francorchamps

A very wet but interesting race Spa, Belgium, May 1st. Taking place as it did, only a week after the Monza 1,000-kilometre race for Prototypes. Sports cars and GT cars, the Belgian event on the magnificent Spa-Francorchamps circuit stretched many of the teams to the limit as regards time and mechanics' work. In spite of this the entry was pretty good and certainly as interesting as Monza, if not...

43rd Targa Florio

Ferrari Debacle and Porsche Walkover Palermo, Sicily, May 24th. When Vicenzo Florio died early this year it seemed that a chapter of motor-racing history would come to an end, for since 1906 he had been the leading light behind the organisation of the Targa Florio, a race usually reckoned to be the toughest test of man and machine in European racing. However, his confederates on the organising...

Brands Hatch international

August 6th For the Guards Trophy meeting this year the B.R.S.C.C. decided to hold the race for sports cars and Prototypes and arrayed an interesting collection of cars for this 50-lap event, a huge crowd turning up to witness the four-event programme in foul weather.

Petit Four

Despite not being produced entirely as it was conceived, the Porsche 904 proved to be a versatile competition car Almost by tradition, Porsche's sports racing cars were built with tubular frames. Hermann Ramelow designed the original tubular frame Porsche, the type 550, which first raced in 1953, as a complete departure from the type 356 production cars which were far too compromised to remain at...

Park Life

Oulton park has had a chequered history since it was built by enthusiasts in 1953. For Bill Boddy, it holds many memories Although by the 1950s Britain was endowed with a number of very good motor racing circuits to compensate for the criminal loss of Brooklands, — for example, Silverstone, Donington Park, Goodwood, and the tight little Crystal Palace course —the keen members of the Mid-Cheshire...

Monza 1,000 Kilometers

Surtees/Parkes win for Ferrari Monza, Italy, April 25th The 1,000-kilometre race at Monza on Monday, April 25th, a national holiday, provided Ferrari with a hollow victory, rather like that of Ford's at Daytona, for there was no serious opposition to the works-entered 4-litre V12-cylinder four-overhead-camshaft 330P/3 with new coupe bodywork. There was no car in the entry of 40 that was any...

European Hill-Climb Championship 1965

UNLIKE last year's European Hill-Climb Championship when the late Edgar Barth and his works Porsche 8-cylinder Prototype was unbeatable, this year's Championship has been a no-holds-barred dogfight between Abarth, Porsche and Lodovico Scarfiotti in a hybrid 2.0 Dino-Ferrari V6. Starting in early June with the 13-mile Mont Ventoux Hill-Climb in Southern France, the series got off to an exciting...
