The Other Cars of Brian Lister

"In the fifties," says Brian Lister, "you still had two distinct types of successful racing car designers. There were the designer / artists, such as John Cooper and myself, people with an engineering background who designed intuitively, and the designer / scientists such as Colin Chapman. I happen to have been involved in racing at the right time and when we had to make the decision to quit, in...

Sterling silver

To conclude our trilogy of significant French motor sport anniversaries, we rewind 60 years to the day that Mercedes-Benz returned to Grand Prix racing – and obliterated its rivals Writer Richard Williams The first outsider to catch sight of the new Silver Arrow hadn’t a clue what he was looking at. Which was a relief to the Mercedes personnel, who allowed the photographer George Monkhouse to...

A nation divided

Behind the shock and awe of era-defining Silver Arrows domination, tension festered in the wake of the Führer’s decision to split state funding between Mercedes and the new Auto UnionWriter Doug Nye Pre-war motor racing was well reported by the British weeklies The Motor and The Autocar, with Tom Moore and friends in Motor Sport having more time to get it right. Time reveals so much more – but...

Rumblings

It's up to you Whether racing miniature petrol-driven model cars will ever give anything like as much relaxation to enthusiasts here as it has to Americans remains to be seen. If this pastime does not catch on certainly Mr. D.A. Russell, A.M.I.Mech.E., Managing Editor of The Aero Modeller, will not be blameworthy. As we announced exclusively some while ago, he has decided to try to popularise...

"Ban the Belgian GP"

DSJ comments on the cancellation of this year's Spa race This year is the 75th anniversary of the The Royal Automobile Club of Belgium, and they were forced to celebrate it without the traditional Belgian Grand Prix. This was no direct fault of the RACB but the culmination of a lot of hysterics and well-meaning actions by people and bodies who were never heard of in 1896 when the RACB was formed...

Superior Experience

Superior Experience READING the Deputy Editor's article on Brough Superiors in last month's issue has reminded me of the time when I had a sixcylinder Brough Superior saloon to test for MOTOR SPORT.

The Reminiscences of Reggie Tongue

Seeing this, I was instantly back at Brooklands, in the 1930s. With a more knowledgeable companion I was...

Students of speed

The intense sporting rivalry between Cambridge and Oxford stretches beyond the Thames, Lor'ds and Twickenham. Bill Boddy remembers their car and bike battles - a veritable breeding ground for future British Motorsporting talent It is rather pleasing to thing of the sight and sound of racing cars invading usually quiet private drives in country estates, as the Dark and Light Blues compared their...
