Tasmanian double

Intended purely for racing Down Under, this Lotus 49 suddenly found itself carrying the world champion’s Grand Prix hopes at Silverstone Writer Gordon Cruickshank, photographer Simon Clay It can’t be often that half a car has turned the racing world on its head, but Colin Chapman’s Lotus 49 was an evolutionary surge – yet only half the story. The other half, of course, was the single most...

Best of three?

In 1955 the Jaguar D-type, Ferrari 750 Monza and Aston Martin DB3S all contested the Goodwood Nine Hours. But which is best? It’s a tough choiceBy Andrew Frankel As the crowds arrived at Goodwood on August 20, 1955 for the Nine Hours endurance race, few if any of the fans knew that it would be the last long-distance, day into night race held at their beloved track – at least, until the circuit’s...

Gimme five!

In the heat of Imola nothing could stop Nigel Mansell setting another record. This time last year, at the fifth Grand Prix of the season, Williams-Renault had firmly indicated the strength of its challenge to McLaren-Honda. That race, the Canadian GP, ultimately fell to poor old Nelson Piquet in the Benetton-Ford, but only after Mansell's last minute drama. Senna had won the previous four, but...

On the New Grand Prix Formula

The fact that the F.I.A. have announced a new Formula for Grand Prix racing is no longer news, for practically everyone, knowledgeable and unknowledgeable, has expressed an opinion on it; indeed, it has been bandied about in a fashion worthy of a Fleet Street news titbit. To those of us who are interested in motor racing it is still important and a vital item in our future. For the man in the...

The A.D.A.C. 1,000 Kilometers

Adenau, Germany, May 27th. THE A.D.A.C. 1,000-kilometre race, run over 44 laps of the famous Nurburgring, is fast developing a character of its own, in as much as it is becoming a super International Clubman's event, or stepping-stone for the amateur driver of sports or G.T. cars to branch out into the world of serious motor racing. With its 22 kilometres to the lap the Nurburgring can easily...

The B.O.A.C. 500

The B.R.S.C.C. do it again Brands Hatch, England, April 7th Last year, when the B.R.S.C.C. and the British Overseas Airways Corporation combined to put on our first decent long-distance race for many years, and it proved to be a great success, they started planning the 1968 event but even the most ardent supporter could not really believe that a second six-hour event for Group 6 Prototypes and...

Best-Laid Plans

The Vintage Sports Car Club held its OuIton Park race meeting over the weekend of July 16-17 along with bicycle races, autojumbles, tugs-of-war, concours d'elegance and all the fun of a motor fair. There were 255 entries (against 227 last year) plus 28 Morgan three-wheelers racing under ACU rules. Eight races were intended on the Saturday, six on Sunday, but continuous heavy rain posed problems....

The Goodwood Motor Circuit Revival

In the end, it surpassed the wildest expectations. Fifty years to the day after its first meeting, motor racing returned to Goodwood with an event none of the 80,000 spectators would argue was not the greatest historic race meeting of all time. The restoration of the buildings, the period livery of staff and traditional BARC and drivers' cricket match are images of an event which recaptured the...

VSCC 1st Silverstone

The Vintage SCC's first Silverstone Race Meeting of this year, on April 19th, had both sad and happy connotations. Sad because it remembered the Hon Patrick Lindsay, one of the Club's outstanding and most popular racing drivers, happy because it recognised the 50th year in which Cecil Glutton, CBE, has been racing the 1908 GP Itala, that 12-litre giant. in VSCC events. The tributes to Lindsay...

The Count and the Commendatore

It was with MV Agusta and Ferrari that John Surtees scored his famous world titles on two wheels and four. But working with these two great Italian teams was no easy ride…By Nigel Roebuck Big John’ we called him, didn’t we? And in Italy, where it started, ‘Il Grande John’. John Surtees has had a love affair with Italy for most of his life, and it began in 1955, when a 21-year-old motorcycle...
