T. G. H. Moore, JP, CP It is with the deepest sense of regret that we record the passing of T. G. Moore, Tom to his friends, and T.G.M. to MOTOR SPORT, which he owned from 1929 until he parted with it to the present Proprietor at the end of 1936. It must be made clear that this relinquishing of the journal was not an indication that fast cars had become of diminishing interest to T.G.M.; it came...

The Coupe des Alpes

The Coupe des Alpes /T is a very good sign that British manufacturers are taking a greater interest in continental trials, as an event like the Coupe des Alpes is absolutely unrivalled for testing out cars, not only of the sports variety, but also touring cars. A car which will function satisfactorily for long periods on the main roads of this country will not always behave so well under the...

The Reminiscences of Reggie Tongue

A most absorbing account, by the well-known racing driver, of the cars which have served him both in races and on the road. My first real, interest in motor cars began at a time when my father used to recount stories to me of the Bentley Boys at Le Mans. A time when British motor racing was supreme. How I admired, as a boy, the stories of Birkin, Sammy Davis, Woolf Barnato, Benjafield, Duller,...

Cowboy, sailor, racer, inventor… and ‘chippie’

Yes, Lance Macklin lived a varied life – and mischief was never far away. But that didn’t stop Moss and Salvadori respecting his ability, as ex-GP driver Howden Ganley explains ”All my life I’ve wanted to run a chippie”. So said Lance Macklin to his young second wife Gill, and thus began a new chapter in the life of a man who had been one of Britain’s leading racing drivers in the 1950s. Lancelot...

Using normal pump fuel, with a compression ratio of just under 7 to 1, and with standard 5.75 x 15 tyres, this Healey saloon covered a kilometre at a mean speed of...

Club News

We Hear It seems that the prices of the older secondhand cars are dropping a bit, so less-affluent enthusiasts may get their chance this winter. Recently an A.C. Anzani 2-seater for £40, a coupé of the same breed at like price, a "14/40" 1924 Sunbeam, and several "12/50" Alvis have been in the market. A reader bought a little-used 1921 Crossley for less than £40, and Packman, now with B.O.A.C.,...

First ever to win through from Glasgow and first British car to win this great winter test and adventure since Donald Healey did so in 1931 with an Envicta, the Allard triumph. is as convincing as it was well-deserved.
