1958 British Grand Prix race report - British supremacy shattered

  After the defeat by Ferrari at Reims it seemed almost certain that Vanwall would regain their pride of place at Silverstone, their own home ground and a medium-fast circuit on which the Ferrari handling characteristics would not appear ideal. Added to this was the fact that Silverstone is not a circuit where high power and maximum speed are so important, as at Spa or Reims, while if Vanwall...

B.A.R.C. Whitsun Meeting

Good racing before a small crowd was seen at Goodwood on May 18th. The big race was the 21-lap Whitsun Trophy, for non-s/c sports cars. Clark (Lister-Jaguar) took the lead from Flockhart after seven laps and looked like winning for the Border Reivers. He ran out of petrol three laps later -- but Clark's day will come; he flings his car about in that confident individual manner which the crowd...

8 Clubs at Silverstone (June 1st)

The annual race meeting of the 8-Clubs organisation was, as usual, a great success, 13 five-lap races and two ½-hour High-Speed Trials being run off most commendably to time-table. Handicapping was in the capable mind of Charles Bulmer and the considerable crowd which attended must have gone home feeling that if G.P. drivers were on strike the non-professionals at least were having a jolly good...

The B.A.R.C. Goodwood Whitsun Meeting

Heavy rain in the morning and a programme confined to sports-car races produced only thin support on Bank Holiday Monday. The seven-lap Closed Car Handicap saw saloons really pressing on. A system of time and credit-lap handicapping made this race difficult to follow but it transpired that Sprinzel's special Austin A35 had won at 62.65 m.p.h., after a close fight with Bell's hood-up Morris Minor...

Bank holiday Brands Hatch

Another Cooper F1 Victory August Bank Holiday witnessed a great exodus from the Metropolis to Brands Hatch for the first car race meeting on the extended 2.05-mile circuit. A crowd of 60,000 is said to have attended, proof of Brands Hatch's popularity but underlining the inadequacy of its exits. The day's racing opened with the 10-lap Wrotham Trophy Race for GT cars, which Sears couldn't help...

"Daily Express" Silverstone Races

A Pageant of Speed Silverstone, Northamptonshire, May 14th. The annual day of racing on the Silverstone circuit, organised by the B.R.D.C., started off at 10.30 a.m, on a bright and sunny morning with a 35-lap race for sports cars, the majority of which were using large American V8 engines. The entry was mostly of Group 7 FIA 2-seater racers, with the addition of a few homologated Group 4 sports...

Boxing Day at Brands Hatch

Graham Hill demonstrates his prowess The BRSCC really is extremely fortunate with the weather for its Boxing Day Brands Hatch motor-racing. Never has ice or snow caused the cancellation of this winter programme and last Christmas fog which seemed likely to do so dispersed, so that everything went to schedule and in these circumstances rain seemed only a slight inconvenience. A considerable crowd...

Hants & Berks M.C. Great Auclum Speed-Hill Climb

Sprint events are very much in the English tradition, for when Brooklands was our only circuit it was supplemented by many speed hill-climbs and speed trials, at first on public roads, later on private courses. Today, happily, this form of racing persists, although fewer courses have been available since the war. The Hants & Berks M.C.'s annual Great Auclum hill-climb is held over Neil...
