British racing green triumphs at La Sarthe

Le Mans Legends From a superb 48-car field, Willie Green claimed a famous victory in the Le Mans Legends race run as a warmup to the 24-hour race in June.

Lunch with... Jack Sears

The epitome of the Gentleman Racer, Jack Sears also possessed a steely edge that he put to good use on the race track – but he always saw himself as a team playerBy Simon Taylor Nowadays “Professional” tends to mean doing something properly, and “Amateur” can mean the opposite.

The Ilford 500

Whilst the T.T. had basked in OuIton Park sunshine, the Ilford Films 500-mile race for GT and sports cars at Brands Hatch the following week started in a torrential downpour which caused the stewards to abandon the planned rolling start and revert to a conventional grid, and to limit the race to 500 miles or six hours, whichever would be the shorter. The race, in fact, ended after six hours with...

The race carried added interest as it was the final and deciding round of the season-long R.A.C. Sports Car Championship. Prior to the...
