Matters of moment

Showtime soliloquy The International Motor Show at Earls Court, just concluded, lived up to its name, with sparkling new cars from Great Britain, France, Italy, West Germany, Canada, America, Japan, Sweden, Australia, Poland, Czechoslovakia, East Germany and Russia. In a Way it was historic, apart from the exhibits from Beaulieu's National Motor Museum and others, because it was the last SMMT...

Something different

The Alpine Rally A NUMBER of my friends kept disappearing, saying, "We're going on holiday," and when they returned they talked about the change from the normal routine of their lives being as good as a rest cure, and kept asking me when I was going on holiday. Now, for as long as I can remember, my life has been one long holiday, watching motor races every weekend, all over Europe, enjoying...

Serious Stuff

I was looking at RAC MSA News the other day, and it reminded me of how very intense all forms of motor sports have become, in the world of big business in which such are now included. It is absolutely right and proper that events in which danger lurks and the results of which mean a very great deal to quite a lot of the drivers, to some of whom even the smaller events constitute part of their...

European Letter

(By means of which our European reporter occasionally keeps in touch with the Editor.) Dear W.B., For a change I am starting to write this one from the offshore island of Great Britain, instead of the Mainland of Europe, the reason being that I went on strike and flatly refused to go and watch the German GP being run at the Hockenheim Stadium. Over the past months we have heard various out-...

The things they say . . .

"Without any hesitation I rank it as one of the only six cars I would personally have in my own garage."—Robert Glenton, writing of the Fiat 500F in The Sunday Express of May 3rd. " . . . a new small-six 1,290-c.c. sports engine, the ASA, develops the phenomenal output of 124 b.h.p., far be it from me to decry this output, which is achieved unblown at 7,000 r.p.m. . . . but reflect that the MG....

Ardua non astra

Although it never claimed a major win, the Erskine Staride set a future Lotus Formula One racer on his way. Nick Phillips looks back at this innovative F3 The 500cc Formula 3 era spawned a host of cars. Among them was the innovative, though ultimately underperforming Erskine Staride. It won races and gave Trevor Taylor, a future Lotus team-mate to Jim Clark, his start in single-seaters but the...

Rude awakening

1955: Richmond Trophy, Goodwood Jack Brabham's success at cooper was the product of graft and talent. His first UK race was full of the sort of obstacles that made him stronger. Paul Fearnley explains This was not Jack Brabham's first race in a Cooper. Far from it. Nor was the moment of his maiden race outside the Antipodes particularly enjoyable for the swarthy, brown-as-a-berry Sydney-sider:...

Continental Notes

Safety Measures Apart from all the unofficial people who make pronouncements on motor racing safety, those people whose job it actually is, are always discussing the problem and after the big incident at the British Grand Prix and the catastrophe at the Dutch Grand Prix there was a meeting between the CSI, represented by Dean Delamont, the GPDA, represented by Denis Hulme and the Constructors...

The R.A.C. Rally of Great Britain (March 23rd-28th)

This year's British Rally went off very well, emphasis being placed more on the special tests at Silverstone, Castle Combe, Prescott, Llandrindod, Blackpool, Lakeland, Turnberry, the Yorkshire Moors and Hastings, than on the road section. Unfortunately, during the Rally Col. Barnes, of the R.A.C., was taken ill and detained in Winchester Hospital, and Dean Delamont, deputy clerk of the course,...

WESLAKE-CAPRI 3-LITRE IN THEORY, Weslake-designed and manufactured speed equipment for the versatile 3-litre Ford V6 engine has been available for some time, but until last month such a car had eluded the author's road-test programme. Raceproved, the people who make the V6 Cortina-Savage, have acquired the distribution rights for the Weslake parts but we had no luck in trying to borrow their...
