THE DUTCH GRAND PRIX Ferrari Dominate ZANDVOORT, May 22nd ONCE again there was a mad scramble to get from Monte Carlo to Zandvoort and to repair the Grand Prix cars, for the Dutch Grand Prix was held on Whit-Monday, the weekend following the Monaco race. The organisers of the race decided to have no argument over qualifying times or such methods of selecting the entry of 15 cars and drew up the...

XXI Monaco Grand Prix

B.R.M. sweeps the board Monte Carlo, May 26th. This year it was the turn of the Monaco Grand Prix to be called the Grand Prix of Europe, but more important it was the first Grande Epreuve of the 1963 season. This was unfortunate in some ways because it did not encourage anyone with a new design to try it out, the accident hazard on the street circuit being rather formidable. However, some new...

XXIV German Grand Prix

A race under impossible conditions Adenau, Germany, August 5th. The Automobile Club von Deutschland collected a vast entry for the German Grand Prix at the Nürburgring, including all the factory teams and nearly all the private-owners, the only notable exception being the U.D.T.-Laystall team. It seemed that the A.v.D. did not want to know about Mr. Ken Gregory and his pale green cars, but they...

British G.P. Cars Sweep the Board ZANDVOORT, May 26th (Whit Monday). THE last time that a Grand Prix was held at Zandvoort was in 1955, the year that Mercedes-Benz conquered all the opposition, and since then the K.N.A.C., who organise the race, felt they could not afford the capital outlay to run a World Championship event. However, this year preliminary work was started early and there was...

XXXIII Italian Grand Prix

Grand slam for B.R.M. MONZA, September16th This year the Automobile Club of Milan made two major changes to the Italian Grand Prix, both of them admirable ones. The first was to abandon the concrete banked track and hold the Grand Prix on the road circuit only and the second was to increase the race length to almost 500 kilometres. A total of 31 cars was accepted for the qualifying sessions, of...

48th French Grand Prix

A Race of Surprises Rouen-Les Essarts, July 8th. Every five years the Grand Prix de l'A.C.F. leaves the Reims circuit and is held at Rouen-Les-Essarts, having done so in 1952, 1957 and now in 1962. The Rouen circuit does not have the amenities nor the grandness and atmosphere of Reims, but the circuit itself is one of the best in Europe from the point of view of driving and spectating. All the...

The Dutch Grand Prix

Clark, Lotus and Climax Uncatchable Zandvoort, Holland, May 24th. The organisation of the Dutch Grand Prix this year was undertaken by the N.A.V., a sporting association acting on behalf of the K.N.A.C., rather like the B.R.D.C. running the British Grand Prix for the R.A.C., and this new organisation invited a carefully selected field of eighteen drivers to take part. It went without saying that...

XX Grand Prix of Monaco

A race of decimation Monte Carlo, June 3rd. Due to a shuffling of the calendar this year the Monaco G.P. was not the first Grande Epreuve, the Dutch G.P. already having been held, so that everyone arrived in the Principality ready to do battle, this year's form having been indicated at Zandvoort, where B.R.M. ran away with the race. Once again the entry of 16 cars for the Monaco race was decided...

The 25th German Grand Prix

A well-deserved win Adenau, August 4th As if to celebrate the 25th German Grand Prix the weather at the Nurburgring in the Eifel mountains almost behaved itself for the duration of the meeting, which covered practice on Friday and Saturday and the race on Sunday. On such a long circuit with a change in height between the start area and Breidscheid of many hundreds of feet, and hills and valleys...

11 Gran Premio de Mexico

An easy win for Clark Mexico City, 27th October In 1962 the Mexican Automobile Club invited some G.P. drivers to participate in a Formula One race on the circuit at Mexico City. This year, with F.I.A. approval, the race counts in the World Championship series and therefore attracted a big entry. The circuit is situated in a 600-acre sports arena which consists of 48 football pitches, 55 baseball...
