The Seventeenth Rembrandt

Cameron Earl gave a really excellent talk at the "Rembrandt" on January 22nd on his report on the German G.P. cars. Bob Gerard took the chair and George Monkhouse supported Earl. Gerard said it was disgraceful that we have lost Donington — Silverstone is certainly not a substitute and we want a road-circuit; Hyde Park would be Ideal. He thought 350 b.h.p. is needed to beat the Alfas and said...

Sterling silver

To conclude our trilogy of significant French motor sport anniversaries, we rewind 60 years to the day that Mercedes-Benz returned to Grand Prix racing – and obliterated its rivals Writer Richard Williams The first outsider to catch sight of the new Silver Arrow hadn’t a clue what he was looking at.

Club news

750 Club The 750 Club meeting at the "Osterley" on May 3rd went over big, as usual, many useful contacts being made, much motoring conversation indulged in, and, best of all, George Monkhouse showed his inimitable films of Grand Prix racing of the 1935-38 period. There is no gainsaying the value of these meetings as a break from the monotony or excitement of war-effort existence, and everyone who...

THE J.C.C. FILM SHOW The J.C.C. gave easily the best motorracing film show ever, at Wardour Street, on November 2nd. All the best racing films were shown, with two of the best Micky Mouse cartoons and other pictures as a pleasant variation.

GP car construction

Sir, I have just read Mr. George Monkhouse's letter in the November issue of Motor Sport, in which he discusses the fragility of today's Grand Prix racing cars. I, too, have been horrified by the frequency of running-gear failures which these cars suffer and I feel that it is only due to good fortune that so few injuries have resulted. Without having their design freedom restricted, it is...
