National Racing Review

It has been a year of development, controversy and near-peak excitement, rather than a season of out-and-out classic motor racing on the national club scene. On the whole grids have been full - in the majority of cases near to over-flowing - and competition has been keen and fierce. It is, perhaps, a sign of the slightly easier times in which we live that there appears to have been no dire...

Lloyds & Scottish Historic Car Championship

The entry for the second round of this championship at the AMOC's St. John Horsfall Silverstone meeting at the end of June was so strong that the single-seater racing cars were divided from the sports cars in two races. The single-seater race provided the dice of the day between Gerry Marshall (above, furthest from the camera) driving the Marsh Aston Martin DBR4 and Bruce Halford (No.70) in his...

Spice Varieties

In designing the Spice Pontiac during 1985, Graham Humphrys drew heavily on his Formula One experience with Hesketh and Theodore. He produced a straightforward and classical honeycomb aluminium monocoque with great strength and rigidity, meeting the F1 safety standards at least of the early 1980s. On a trestle in the workshop in the bare chassis looks rather large for a formula car, as though it...

Mods and rockers

The wild world of Special Saloons and Modsports went out of fashion as the traditional grass roots became swamped with one-make championships. But now they’re back in vogue – and blooming Writer Gordon Cruickshank, photographer Howard Simmons There I was, slicing through Silverstone’s Bridge Corner, just clipping the apex when suddenly there were four cars stationary in front of me... Which is...

On the road with... Simon Arron

Back to the future Goodwood, March 29/30: the 72nd running of an old favourite proves genuinely innovative… It wasn’t quite how Goodwood felt during the 1980s, when it was a sleepy test venue that happened to have a good café – the perfect rendezvous point ahead of a day testing road cars around the South Downs – but it was similar. The approach roads showcased Sussex at its tranquil best, with...

On the road with... Simon Arron

A season of contrasts Brands Hatch, May 25 & June 8: blast from the past plus a visit from the brash-and-bash brigade There’s an argument that Britain has too much motor sport, but I’d counter that the year simply needs a few more weekends. I’d never previously attended the Masters Historic meeting on the full version of Brands Hatch, not least because the Monaco Grand Prix had occupied my...

LE MANS 1960-1969 THE OFFICIAL HISTORY OF THE WORLD’S GREATEST MOTOR RACE - QUENTIN SPURRING Author Spurring’s opening assertion that the 1960s saw the making of the Le Mans 24 Hours is amply borne out as one peruses this handsome work, which captures the event’s colour, variety and atmosphere during a decade of rapid change. Although notionally the first in a series encompassing the famed race’s...

Interview: Terry Hoyle

Unlike their racing counterparts, rallying's engine builders rarely receive recognition for their labours. It's hard to pin down the exact reason, but probably the situation isn't helped by the factory-based rally teams. In the "assemblatore" world of single-seater racing, the choice of engine builders and power units themselves is wide and varied. It's a buyers' market. Rallying has never got to...
