1 ½-litre racing from 1935

A survey of recent international small car races. British E.R.A. achievements in perspective TO the British enthusiast 1½-litre racing has a special significance, because, while this country has never made any attempt to compete in full Grand Prix racing, she has sought, and attained not a little success in events confined to cars the engine size of which does not exceed 1,500 c.c. There is,...

The Reminiscences of Reggie Tongue

A most absorbing account, by the well-known racing driver, of the cars which have served him both in races and on the road. My first real, interest in motor cars began at a time when my father used to recount stories to me of the Bentley Boys at Le Mans. A time when British motor racing was supreme. How I admired, as a boy, the stories of Birkin, Sammy Davis, Woolf Barnato, Benjafield, Duller,...

That Great Little Man Freddie Dixon

Having recalled recently the careers of some well-known British racing drivers, the time is overdue to include Freddie Dixon. Born in 1892, Frederick William Dixon had already deservedly achieved fame in the motorcycle racing field, before he turned to car racing. Starting in 1909, he had won two 7 races, established records innumerable, ridden with great distinction at Brooklands, where he was...

Veteran Edwardian Vintage

A section devoted to old-car matters ⁂ Sir, In reference to Harry Hawker's Mercedes-Sunbeam aero engined special — you say that after Hawker's death in 1921 the car disappeared. Well, not according to an article in the Riley Record of July 1934. I quote: "a representative of the Riley Record recently discovered what must be one of the biggest cars in everyday use, the car which is the property of...

Cobb and Alvis

Sir, With reference to your article in Motor Sport. I did not say in my book that my husband and I drove in the 1930 "Double Twelve" at Brooklands. We drove an Alvis in the 1929 "Double Twelve" and John Cobb was in the team. I have written several articles on this race, and your statement that John Cobb was not in the team with us has caused some confusion and I have received two telephone calls...

Whitney Straight - Racing Driver

I find it astonishing that, whereas books have been written about so many racing drivers, from those of the pioneer days, through the interim periods, to the present day, nothing has appeared, so far as I can recollect, about Whitney Straight, or Earl Howe' for that matter. So, although it is scarcely possible to do full justice to any driver in a magazine article, the young American driver was...

PERSONALITIES IN ENGLAND

PERSONALITIES IN ENGLAND AN ARTICLE WHICH WILL INTEREST OTHER OBSERVERS AND PERHAPS AMUSE THE "VICTIMS" THE first race which I ever saw was the B.R.D.C. " 500 " run at Brooklands in the autumn of 1999. From that time until I became closely associated with the sport, I saw quite a lot of racing., yet I was a distant spectator, and never at any time came into close contact with ziny of the drivers...

The curious case of the FC Front-Drive Alvis

[I am delighted to publish this article about the 1928 FWD Alvis TT cars, from Hugh Torrens, of Keele University, because it throws new light on one of motor racing's major mysteries — who really won the 1928 Tourist Trophy, that first, widely publicised and massively-supported sportscar contest over the Ards circuit? Alvis are said to have thought that the time-keeper's charts were at fault...
