Long-Life Racing Drivers

The best age for a racing driver is presumably somewhere between 18 and 30. I looked for some confirmation of this in Denis Jenkinson's erudite book "The Racing Driver" (Batsford, 1958) but all I found was the attitude to some drivers and riders to retirement. We know that there were people like C. Le Strange Metcalfe and Sir Francis Samuelson, Bt. drove racing cars when they were 70 and more...

ON TWO IMPORTANT NEW VENTURES IT is curious, but true, that rumour, persistently repeated and accepted, comes to mean as much as a watertight statement of fact. The A.I.A.C.R. has, one believes, so far, said nothing definite about the 1940 International Grand Prix Formula. Yet nearly everyone in motor-racing is convinced that the Formula will be a simple one of a capacity limit of Ii-litres, with...

THE E.R.A. CLUB Sir, 'This is an open letter to all those interested in Britain's prestige in motor racing. Owing to the wonderful generosity of Humphrey Cook, the E.R.A. concern came into being and put England On the map in the 1 I-litre class. The very existence of these cars would not have been possible except for his tremendous sportsmanship. In order to assist him the E.R.A. club was formed...

BRDC Bulletin

Some time ago we stated that the secretary of the B.R.D.C. had left no address to which communications could be forwarded, but now that a meeting has been held under the chairmanship of Lord Howe, and H. J. Morgan has agreed to be acting secretary, letters can be sent on. However, to avoid unnecessary work, we feel it advisable to remind new readers that B.R.D.C. membership was, before the war,...

Stadium rock

Pete Tucker was one of the very first stars as stock car racing took a hold in fifties Britain. He recalls the lifestyle with Richard Barnett In 1954 Juan Manuel Fangio was thrilling grand prix-goers on his way to another world championship, but in race stadiums around the United Kingdom another form of motorsport was being established. That same year British stock car racing was born, and was...

The Hermon

Last month the Comet, this month the Hermon. They had much in common. Both were optimistic designs by small concerns, and neither car ever actually went into production. But whereas it seems as if the producers of the Comet had intended to manufacture their own engine, or at least some of its major components, the people behind the Hermon project apparently realised the impossibility of so doing...

Belonging to a Past Decade Seaman's old Delage has certainly caught the racing-public's imagination and it again more than gave the E.R.A. drivers a run for their money at Donington, on the occasion of the 200-Mile Race. For that event Seaman made use of his second engine, which is a few c.c. larger than the unit he was running earlier this year. The Delage, by the way, is the car which Senechal...

The Late Biagio Nazzaro.

The Late Biagio Nazzaro. mANY of our readers will remember the tragic death of Biagio Nazzaro in the 1922 French Grand Prix, which was held that year on the circuit of Strasbourg. He was making his first appearance in a big race, and it was felt that by his death Italy lost one of her most proinising drivers. The race marked the reappearance of Fiat in the racing world, with a team of three very...
