No headline

s I was doing one of my periodic office clear-outs recently, for some reason I began to think about phone conversations — sitting in that chair, at that desk — down the years. My office sits at the far end of the garden, and there have been times when circumstances have dictated that I've been in there round the clock.

Continental Notes

Usually when the Le Mans 24-hour race is finished we hear no more from the district of Sarthe until the end of the year, when the regulations for the next event are published. This year it has been a different story for ever since the end of the 24-hour race the Automobile Club de l'Ouest and its dignitaries have been closely involved with members of the C.S.I. in actions contrary to the rules of...

Continental Notes

That go-ahead club, the B.R.S.C.C., under the direction of Nick Syrett, last month took the bull by the horns and made a stand against the bureaucracy of the R.A.C. and the F.I.A. on the subject of the capacity limits for long distance racing.

Whether or not petrol is properly rationed by the time these words appear in print, the high cost of this essential spirit makes personal conservation of it of considerable moment to most of us. Having said that, we still...

Matters of moment

The return of the English racing season After a particularly hard winter it is good to contemplate the coming motor racing season. This month English motor racing gets off to a good start. At Easter the B.A.R.C. will organise its Bank Holiday Monday Meeting at the improved Goodwood circuit, a meeting which will include a 100-mile F1 race, which it it is hoped will attract entries of B.R.M.,...

Lunch with... Professor Sid Watkins

His efforts have helped to transform safety in Formula 1, to the benefit of us all. Through almost three decades ‘Prof’ came to be loved by the drivers, and none more so than Senna By Simon Taylor In the relentless theatre of Formula 1, the members of the complex cast – drivers, team chiefs, designers, organisers, circuit owners, officials – may be liked, admired, respected, even feared.

Mid-life prizes

Don Parker didn't begin racing until he was past 40 and yet he became one of Britain's most successful drivers of the 1950s — a match for Stirling Moss no less in the cut and thrust of Formula Three. Mike Lawrence profiles one of the most unlikely stars of the sport Next time you read that so-and-so has scored a record number of victories in Formula Three, reflect that in the 1950s, Don Parker...

Continental Notes

In France there has been-something of a revolution in the administration sphere of motor racing, which could well have far-reaching effects, though at the moment the full repercussions have yet to take place. Briefly, a young and virile organisation has obtained Government permission to take over control of French motor racing, and have said they will overthrow the F.I.A. However, it is not as...
