European letter

[By means of which our roving European reporter keeps in touch with the Editor.] Dear W. B., After motoring about on the highly efficient German and Belgian motorways and eating at the clinical and rather plastic motorway food stops, it was rather pleasant to return to France where you don't have to use the Autoroutes, leaving them to those people who are in a hurry. Meandering across France on...

45th French Grand Prix-Grand Prix d'Europe

Ferrari Back on Form REIMS, July 5th. This year the G.P. of the A.C.F., better known as the French Grand Prix, was given the title of G.P. d'Europe, for what it was worth, and attracted a very strong entry of works teams and small private teams, as well as a few independents. As in previous years, a F.2 race was held as well, but this year it was run after the Grand Prix, and the annual 12-hour...

The Ulster Tourist Trophy

A Hard-Fought Victory for Mercedes-Benz  Belfast, September 17th. For the first time the Ulster T.T. became a straightforward, simple race, in which the first car to cover 84 laps of the Dundrod circuit would be adjudged the winner of the Tourist Trophy, presented by the R.A.C. In the past, complicated handicapping systems have invariably resulted in lack of public interest as well as lack of...

Notes On The Cars In The Mille Miglia

In the over-2-litre class the issue lay between Ferrari and Maserati, and the Maranello firm entered two 12-cylinder 3 1/2-litres as used in the Giro Sicilia, to be driven by Castellotti and Fangio, and two four-cylinder 3 1/2-litres, similar to the Sicily-winning car, to be driven by Musso and Collins. There were no radical changes to them, and only Collins carried a passenger, the others having...

THE A.D.A.C. 1,000 KILOMETERS

THE A.D.A.C. 1,000 KILOMETRES A Remarkable Race ADENAU, GERMANY, May 281h THE. r,000 kilometres race over 44 laps of the famous Nurburgring probably affords more people the opportunity to motor race and to try their hand at cornering, than any other motor racing event. The entry is always enormous, ranging from works sports cars to small privately-owned G.T. cars, and the drivers from Seasoned...

Targa Florio

Sicily - 720 km. - June 10th. Unlike last year the Targa Florio was not in the World Championship series and as a result it lost a lot of its glory and the entry was small. Run over 10 laps of the 72-kilometre Little-Madonie mountain circuit the only factory entries were a Ione 3-litre Maserati driven by Taruffi, two 3.5-litre Ferraris shared by the pairs, Collins/Castellotti and Gendebien/...

Tour de France — Nice-to-Nice

In the world of pedal-cycle racing the Tour of France is recognised as the world's greatest event and all other forms of long-distance racing are reckoned to be mere practice runs in Preparation for the big event. If the Automobile Club de Nice continue to organise the Tour of France for cars as they have done over the past four years, then it is quite likely that the event will be placed as high...

The Second Circuit of the Auvergne

Moss Unbeatable in F.2 Clermont-Ferrand, July 26th The City of Clermont-Ferrand lies more or less in the centre of France, surrounded by the hills of the Massif Central and is a large and thriving city with seemingly little connection with the outside world. Last year the Automobile Club D'Auvergne, which is centred in Clermont-Ferrand, built an entirely new circuit up in the hills overlooking...

The XXXIII Mille Miglia

A Personal Triumph for Castellotti In spite of popular alarums and excursions the Mille Miglia took place on April 28/29th in exactly the same form as past years, and the only differences in the route were two new by-pass roads: at Pineto, on the Adriatic coast, and San Quirico, shortly before Siena. Of the 427 entries, only 54 failed to turn up in the Piazza Vittoria in Brescia for the official...

XXIV Mille Miglia

Ferrari Sweep the Board Once Again Brescia, Italy, May 12th. As with many big motor races, the 1957 Mille Miglia resolved into a straight fight between the Scuderia Ferrari and the Scuderia Maserati. This being a sports-car race both teams brought out their big guns and there was every prospect of a real dice over the 1,597 kilometres of Italian roads that constitutes the single lap of the Mille...
