Guards International Trophy

For the last few years the big B.R.S.C.C. sports-car meeting on the Monday of the August Bank Holiday weekend has provided the best racing in the country at the time. This season's event was well up to standard, fine weather and an excellent entry for all five races on the programme resulting in an even larger turnout of spectators than usual—over 30,000 being estimated by some people. The main...

The circuit that never was

In the summer, we carried a letter proposing the use of the title 'Scottish Grand Prix' to bring a second Formula One race to the UK. The writer, Ian Scott-Watson, went on to recall attempts to develop a new race circuit in Scotland in the 1960s, which prompted a response from a reader who was involved at the time — Professor Christopher Riley, the Liverpool architect who was engaged to produce...

Whit-Monday at Crystal Palace

With a 2,000 guineas prize as the main attraction, the majority of Formula One drivers were to be found at the Mallory Park Circuit over the Whitsun holiday, and the entries for the B.A.R.C.'s Whit-Monday National Open Meeting at Crystal Palace consequently suffered, with most teams splitting their entries. Among those who elected in favour of the "London G.P." was last year's winner, Roy...

Brands Hatch International

The International meeting at Brands Hatch on August 29th gave the relatively small crowd some of the most exciting and some of the dullest racing seen at this tiny track since the same meeting last year. The main event of the day was the Kentish "100" Trophy for Formula 2 cars, which was divided into two 42-lap parts, the winner being decided on aggregate times. The vast majority of Formula 1...

Moss Wins Oulton Park £2,000 Gold Cup Race

Stirling Moss, driving Rob Walker's Cooper-Climax, won the International F.1 150-mile race at Oulton Park on September 26th. It was a race "International" in name only, because Volonterio, only Continental entrant, substituted Halford to drive Gould's five-year-old 250F Maserati, which failed to start, proving too slow in practice. It was a curious line-up, composed of Moss and Brabham in Coopers...

The B.R.D.C. Silverstone International Trophy Meeting

Silverstone, May 2nd. The B.R.D.C.'s "Festival of Speed" has become an important fixture for many British spectators, who enjoy a full day's programme for modest admission charges. This year over 100,000 flocked to Silverstone, not, as on the Continent, in carefree fashion to drink in the sun at outdoor tables as the racing cars were driven through colourful streets, but in pouring rain to a...

Racing at Whitsun

Goodwood (June 3rd) The B.A.R.C.'s National British Race Meeting at Goodwood on Whit Monday June 3rd, although being the secondary meeting to their Crystal Palace International Race Meeting held simultaneously, provided Ferrari an opportunity for free practice for the R.A.C. Tourist Trophy, due to take place on the Sussex circuit on August 24th. Two GTO Ferraris were entered for the main event of...

Brands Hatch 6-Hours

This year's Motor International 6-hour touring car race, held at Brands Hatch on June 6th, had a very promising entry; but last-minute withdrawals resulted in the field which actually appeared being a good deal less interesting than it might have been. These withdrawals included two Lancias, two Alfa Romeo Giulias, a Swiss Chevrolet Impala due to be driven by Jo Siffert and P. Zund, the Alan...

Willment- Past and Present

"Race Proved by Willment" is a phrase which needs no introduction to readers of this magazine. Since its inception little over three years ago the racing division of the John Willment Organisation has emphasised by its successes that its choice of name is really no idle boast. But the origins of the well-known team date from much earlier than 1963. John Willment—whose first car was a 1925 8-h.p....
