RUMBLINGS

Alfas up again There is always something new from Africa, and those two ferocious Grand Prix races, one in Tripoli and one in Tunisia, which took place last month, reveal a new and more healthy situation in big-car racing. After a period of complete, albeit well-deserved, domination by the two German marques, the 12cylinder Alfa-Romeo has at last arrived and the results of the two races show it...

RUMBLINGS

Grand Prix THE visitation of the German team to this country last year has had a very far-reaching effect on enthusiasm in this country. Even those who were already well versed in motoring speed find that their interest in Brooklands racing and sprint events is now supplemented by a keen appreciation of the activities of Continental ace-drivers, and such folk find no difficulty now in associating...

The Brooklands reminiscences of G.P. Harvey Noble

Recounted to the Editor in a recent interview I think that George Harvey Noble has every right, with the late J. G. Parry Thomas, to be remembered as "Mr. Brooklands". He spent so much time at the Track at Weybridge that he had to give up two lucrative businesses. He raced a great variety of cars there, did almost daily stints of test driving, and knew every bump and contour, curve and angle of...

AN ENJOYABLE "DAY IN THE HILLS"

Their " Day in the Hills" was a particularly severe test of organizing. prowess, for in addition to the reliability trial there was a speed trial afterwards in the grounds of the Howard Park Hotel, Tring.

Real Performance

Donald Healey has done it again! Taking a standard Healey aerodynamic saloon out to Milan at the time when Lt.-Col. Gardner and Count Lurani were attacking records on the Milan-Como Autostrada, he had the car timed by the Milan A.C. 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...

Matters of Moment

Farewell, MG Writing farewell to MG is far more heart-breaking than was Lee Strout White's moving "Farewell to Model-T", because whereas that famous Ford was merely departing to make room for the new Model-A, and later the celebrated Ford V8 and a host of subsequent successful Ford models, it looks as if the death-knell has sounded for the Abingdon-built MG sports cars. Whatever the financial...

Clubs news

Ulster A.C. The July issue of the Monthly Review contains a good report of the County Down Trophy Race from various aspects together with several very excellent photographs. Those who were at the race and have not seen a copy should write for one—we can find no price on the cover, but no doubt club funds are open to fortification! The story of the teddy-bear that never looked other than straight...

Matters of moment

I’ll be honest with you. Sam Posey was not the first person I asked to write an appreciation of the extraordinary Mark Donohue. Though I knew Posey to be an accomplished racer in both Indycars and sportscars (at Le Mans in '70 and '71 his Ferrari 512 was first car home behind the uncatchable Porsches), I did not consider him as I had always had Brian Redman in mind for the job. Redman thought...
