Rumblings

Records Show-time is usually records-time, or was when Brooklands was booming and Monthlèry was a busier place than it now seems to be. This year the interest has centred on the Bonneville Salt Flats, Utah, where at the end of -September the American drivers Tony Bettenhausen and Marshall Lewis performed with a 78 by 78-mm., four-cylinder, 1½-litre, streamlined, all-enveloping Osca (alias Simpson...

Ecurie Ecosse transporter

Much more than just another transport vehicle, the Ecurie Ecosse transporter became as famous as the cars – and drivers – it carried. And it’s still playing the same role 50 years on. Words: Gordon Cruickshank. Photography: Tim Kent It’s almost like walking into Merchiston Mews in Edinburgh in the 1950s: open the wooden doors and there’s a row of metallic blue sports-racers. On the flank of each...

Stirling qualities

Ian Stewart beat Moss – but then followed a very different career path. By Eric Dymock When Ian Stewart defeated Stirling Moss at Charterhall in the October of 1952, Bill Boddy was astonished. Both drivers were in C-type Jaguars, Moss was approaching the top of his form, and even though Stewart might have had an advantage on a familiar track, this did not as a rule bother Moss. So there had to be...

Accept no limits

Physical disability was no barrier to racing success for Archie Scott Brown, one of the best-loved drivers in a golden age of motor sport By Nigel Roebuck Of late much has been written about Jimmy Clark, on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of his death, and an indication of his greatness frequently cited was his absolute domination at Spa-Francorchamps, in its fearsome original 8.76-mile...

Scottish Journey

I suppose it was the Vanwall book that caused it, for we were discussing the battles of the racing cars of those two great industrial giants, Sir Alfred Owen and Tony Vandervell, the l½-litre supercharged V16 BRM and the 4½-litre unsupercharged Ferrari "Thinwall Special" and how they raced against each other all over the British Isles. The younger member of the group expressed surprise that these...

The Racing Mechanics

(Continued from the June issue) W. E. Wilkinson By the very nature of "Wilky" (the abbreviation is automatic), it is no use trying to put him in any particular category. He is just Wilky, one of those happy people that everybody knows, who hears all and sees all, but wisely says "naught"; therefore remaining friends with everyone. In return, everyone loves Wilky, for it is impossible to do...

Les Vingt Quarte Heures du Mans, 1956

Scotland wins economy race Le Mans (Sarthe) July 29th. The most outstanding thing about the 1956 Le Mans 24-hour race was the fact that it was run under an entirely new set of rules, and in consequence could not count towards the manufacturers' championship. This meant that it had to stand on its own and rely on tradition for its success. Every year the Le Mans race is controlled by hundreds of...
