The Other Cars of Brian Lister

"In the fifties," says Brian Lister, "you still had two distinct types of successful racing car designers. There were the designer / artists, such as John Cooper and myself, people with an engineering background who designed intuitively, and the designer / scientists such as Colin Chapman.

The newly-formed E.R.A. Club had a very nostalgic assembly of pre- and post-war E.R.A. drivers at its first dinner, at the Public Schools Club in Piccadilly on March 2nd. Organised by the Hon. 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.

The B.AR.C. All-Sports-Cars Meeting at Goodwood

Duncan Hamilton (D-type Jaguar) Wins 21-Lap Johnson's Challenge Trophy Race A sun drenched Whit Monday rendered the B.A.R.C.

Donington Park racing

Once again Tom Wheatcroft is going to try and get motor racing going again on the revised Donington Park circuit, with the first meetings scheduled for this spring. Twice in the past it has looked as though racing was going to start, but unforeseen legal hassles and planning problems have held things up, so let us hope that it is a case of third time lucky.

Club News

We Hear J. N. Morton is proposing to install a 3-litre Bentley engine in a 1925 Sunbeam chassis, and E. Hopewell Ash reports that he is using a 1922 Jowett 2-seater which he acquired last Easter, and which ably takes his family and much luggage from Ruislip to the coast on a handful of revs, the whole way.

  For the first time since 1948, the British Grand Prix did not take place among the green fields of Buckinghamshire but instead was organised in the industrial north-west of England, on the Aintree circuit just outside the port of Liverpool.
