Letters from Readers

fetteio THE LONDON G.P. Sir, As a spectator at last month's meeting at Crystal Palace, I should like to utter an extremely strong protest at what I consider the exorbitant charges for car parking. I do feel, and I am sure that very many will agree with me, that the charge of 5s. for parking one's car outside the grounds was exorbitant, especially in view of the fact that it costs only 8s. to go...

Ecurie Ecosse Transporter

The famous Scottish team's flagship has brought Paddocks to a halt since 1960. Gordon Cruickshank takes a look at this HGV's impressive CV Few teams have enjoyed such loyal patrons as Ecurie Ecosse. Privately funded by a selfeffacing benefactor and a desperately keen supporters' club, it rode high on a tide of national pride to international success. One of the keys to this hearty support was...

The parade of Anciens Pilotes

The idea of having a demonstration of historic racing cars driven by members of the Club Internationale des Anciens Pilotes des Grands Prix at Silverstone on July 15th, before the start of the British G.P. was an excellent idea, for which credit must go to the C.J.A.P. and the B.R.D.C. But such inaccurate accounts: have been published about it, due to confusion over who drove what car and so on,...

The circuit that never was

In the summer, we carried a letter proposing the use of the title 'Scottish Grand Prix' to bring a second Formula One race to the UK. The writer, Ian Scott-Watson, went on to recall attempts to develop a new race circuit in Scotland in the 1960s, which prompted a response from a reader who was involved at the time — Professor Christopher Riley, the Liverpool architect who was engaged to produce...

Eric Dymock Eric’s oeuvre of motoring and racing books and his long career writing in newspapers and magazines on the subject might lead you to think he had a narrow world view. In fact he’s equally hot on World War II and Gilbert and Sullivan, though the story he has uncovered about the sad fate of Ecurie Ecosse founder David Murray is a very long way from light opera. Franca Davenport Daughter...

Lunch with… Norman Dewis

During 33 years and more than a quarter of a million 100mph miles, Norman Dewis was a dedicated team player who helped make Jaguar great By Simon Taylor Marque loyalty is an old-fashioned concept these days. A driver will swap seats after a season or two, a designer will change teams, an engineer or technician will quietly ask around to tease out available opportunities. Everyone's looking to...

Ecurie Ecosse

David Murray and the legendary Scottish motor racing team Eric Dymock It’s a little poignant to be reviewing this after hearing that one of EE’s characters, Jimmy Stewart, had died, but this absorbing account of the blue cars gives his abilities full credit. Dymock is ideally placed, because he knew most of the players and edited the team magazine. When he says “Ian Stewart was every bit Stirling...
