Mass and lckx Win Economy Run

Early last year there was a terrible shemozzle in the sports car world when FISA decided at short notice to "do a deal" with the American IMSA organisation. They scrapped the proposed fuel economy rules for a start, requiring a 15% reduction in the amount available for a 1,000 kilometre event, to 510 litres, and the works Porsche team was so upset that it withdrew its cars from Le Mans. All that...

The dinosaurs' last roar

The rear-engined revolution was in full swing at Indy by 1964, but the stars weren’t yet in alignment. Thus were the traditional roadsters permitted one final lap in the Brickyard’s spotlight...Writer Paul Fearnley Two-fifths of the American population watched The Ed Sullivan Show on February 9, 1964. Beatlemania had turned transatlantic: John, Paul, George and Ringo – plus Jim Clark. More than...

XVIIIth Grand Prix of Monaco

Moss is Supreme Monte Carlo, May 29th. Being the first major Grand Prix of the European season, everyone was out in full force and the entry list was one of the most interesting seen for some time. The B.R.M. team had three of their 1960 rear-engined cars, with Bonnier, Gurney and Graham Hill as drivers; Cooper had their two 1960 ears in the hands of Brabham and McLaren, these new cars looking...

MORE ABOUT CLASS I We have seen too many doubtful projects sponsored by reputable papers, so that we have no wish to be dogmatically optimistic about Class I " Specials." But as the subject seems of universal interest, we see no harm in publishing these general observation3 from Joe Lowrey's pen. We are still anxious to review possible designs. But we have no intention of giving one each month,...

ON THE FINDINGS OF THE R.A. C.— -Continued from page 806 recommendations, be called upon to sanction routes for all clubs holding trials in their area in accordance with the official calendar.

Eyston, OBE who although he achieved considerable success as a racing driver, made record-breaking his main activity (see Motor Sport for October, 1974). Some fascinating glimpses behind the scenes have come to light in the form of letters and papers left by Ernest Eldridge,...

The Genius Lanchester

Earlier this year Dr. F. W. Lancheter died in Birmingham at the age of 77. Thus it is opportune to review the history of the company which Dr. F. W. and his brothers formed at the very beginning of the Industry.

Letters from readers

Sir, Thrusting aside a morbid temptation to sub-title this an "Xmas Xtravaganza," I take up my pen—not because I have any particular pearls of wisdom to impart, but solely through force of habit.

TWO-STROKE TERRORS Mat Oxley YEARS AGO A NEW WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP GAVE bith to a crazy kind of tyre-shredding, piston-meting motorcycle. The Formula 750 series was designed to give the latest 750 four-stroke road bikes somewhere to play, safe from the marauding two-stroke Grand Prix machines that had come to dominate all forms of bike racing. F750 would allow Triumph to show off its booming...
