1967 British Grand Prix race report - Team Lotus Dominate

The choice of the R.A.C. fell on Silverstone this year, so with the help of the BRDC and most of the country's motor clubs the British Grand Prix was held on the wide-open spaces of the airfield circuit. Entry was by invitation and all the big teams were represented along with more than the usual number of private owners, some newcomers being given a chance to try their hand at Grand Prix racing...

Great Auclum (August 11th)

Great Auclum, the eighth qualifying event for the R.A.C. Hill-Climb Championship, saw the Jersey/Italian Renato (Tico) Martini backing up his phenomenal Bouley Bay win with an outright win in the Championship category, breaking the hill record on both his ascents and beating Arthur Owen's 2½-litre Cooper-Climax by 0.47 sec.

Three hill-climbs

Bouley Bay The jersey M.C. and L.C.C.'s Hill-Climb event on July 27th enticed a large number of competitors from the mainland.

Notable absentees were David...

Sec., Barry Eastick, himself an ex-E.R.A. owner, A. F. Rivers-Fletcher took the chair and Raymond Mays and Humphrey Cook were guests of honour.

Some October Sprints

Weston-Super-Mare Speed Trials (October 10th) Uunfortunately the last day of a remarkably dry summer ended the day before the Burnham-on-Sea M.C.'s speed trials along the Marine Parade. This enjoyable event, cars running in pairs along a rather bumpy curving half-mile in sight of the sands, was last held ten years ago; we hope they will be held every year in future during Weston's holiday season...

Road test report on -

A Pleasing Anglo-Swedish Sports Coupé — The Volvo P 1800 Volvo cars from Sweden are very conscientiously made and accurately assembled, as readers of Motor Sport’s account of a visit to the Göteberg plant (June, 1960) will know.

Up The Stairs

Most enthusiasts are usually worn out after touring the car stands at Earls Court and seldom go up the stairs to the Accessory Stands where much of the major development in the Motor Industry takes place. On Press Day we took a trip round the incomplete stands and found much of interest. On the Armstrong stand was the interesting Selectaride shock-absorber system which gives electrical control...
