An Afternoon with an Aston Martin DB3S

The Deputy Editor airs the Midlands Motor Museum's Works Team car When I announced to a couple of Aston Martin enthusiast friends that I was to drive an Aston Martin DB3S - an ex Team car at that - they said knowledgeably: "A better car on the road than the circuit, you know." They may well be right, for the DB3S was less highly strung than some of its thoroughbred sports/racing contemporaries,...

Notes On The Cars In The Mille Miglia

In the over-2-litre class the issue lay between Ferrari and Maserati, and the Maranello firm entered two 12-cylinder 3 1/2-litres as used in the Giro Sicilia, to be driven by Castellotti and Fangio, and two four-cylinder 3 1/2-litres, similar to the Sicily-winning car, to be driven by Musso and Collins. There were no radical changes to them, and only Collins carried a passenger, the others having...

Continental Notes

There is a rule in Grand Prix racing that allows a team manager to change his drivers from one car to another during a race, providing, of course, that this is done at the pits, and with the World Championship events this is frequently done, not only in an attempt to gain a victory, but to keep the top drivers supplied with points. In many ways this is a reasonable regulation, but in other ways...

Targa Florio

Sicily - 720 km. - June 10th. Unlike last year the Targa Florio was not in the World Championship series and as a result it lost a lot of its glory and the entry was small. Run over 10 laps of the 72-kilometre Little-Madonie mountain circuit the only factory entries were a Ione 3-litre Maserati driven by Taruffi, two 3.5-litre Ferraris shared by the pairs, Collins/Castellotti and Gendebien/...

The XXXIII Mille Miglia

A Personal Triumph for Castellotti In spite of popular alarums and excursions the Mille Miglia took place on April 28/29th in exactly the same form as past years, and the only differences in the route were two new by-pass roads: at Pineto, on the Adriatic coast, and San Quirico, shortly before Siena. Of the 427 entries, only 54 failed to turn up in the Piazza Vittoria in Brescia for the official...

Another Mille Miglia with Moss

A Tale Of Woe - by Denis Jenkinson Some years ago there was a popular ballad entitled "Trees" and the last line ran, " . . but only God can make a tree." By the grace of God and one of his trees I am able to write the story of my 1956 Mille Miglia. But let us go back to the beginning, which for me was shortly after the 1955 Mille Miglia when Moss asked me if I would go with him again, and...

XIV Grand Prix de Monaco

A really convincing win for Moss Monte Carlo, May 13th. The Classic Grand Prix of Monaco, held through the streets of Monte Carlo, was once again for Formula 1 cars and counted in the World Championship series, being the second in the 1956 list. Naturally all the big factory teams entered, leaving very little room for private owners, and in view of the town circuit being short and narrow a...
