XVIIIth Grand Prix of Monaco

Moss is Supreme Monte Carlo, May 29th. Being the first major Grand Prix of the European season, everyone was out in full force and the entry list was one of the most interesting seen for some time. The B.R.M. team had three of their 1960 rear-engined cars, with Bonnier, Gurney and Graham Hill as drivers; Cooper had their two 1960 ears in the hands of Brabham and McLaren, these new cars looking...

XXI Monaco Grand Prix

B.R.M. sweeps the board Monte Carlo, May 26th. This year it was the turn of the Monaco Grand Prix to be called the Grand Prix of Europe, but more important it was the first Grande Epreuve of the 1963 season. This was unfortunate in some ways because it did not encourage anyone with a new design to try it out, the accident hazard on the street circuit being rather formidable. However, some new...

A jam-packed season

Owen racing organisation BRM versus Team Lotus For the two drivers who battled out the 1962 Formula 1 World Championship to its nail-biting last-round conclusion, the year had started very differently. While Jimmy Clark was dominating a south African Formula 1 tour in baking sunshine, graham hill and his equally roustabout friend Peter Jopp were slithering down to Monaco over ice and snow in the...

XXIII Monaco Grand Prix

Brilliant Graham Hill THIS year the Indianapolis race, which has now become of great interest to Europeans, was held the day after the Monaco Grand Prix, so there was no possibility of any drivers competing in both events, as in past years. Consequently Jim Clark and Dan Gurney did not enter for the Monaco race and Team Lotus proposed to replace Clark with Pedro Rodriguez and Brabham replaced...

Gordon Kirby – The US Scene

Driven to race far from home Phil Hill’s passing near the end of the summer got me thinking about the great era of motor racing that his career straddled, and the large role played in the sport in those days by American drivers, cars and teams. Through the 1950s and ’60s, Phil was a true pioneer of American road racing. Before earning a seat with Ferrari’s factory sports car team, he set the...

XXI Belgian Grand Prix

A fine win for Lotus Spa, Belgium, June 17th. The wonderful 14.1-kilometre circuit that runs between Francorchamps, Malmedy and Stavelot, in the hills near Spa, needs little introduction to followers of Grand Prix racing, and this year everyone was looking forward to the Belgian G.P. with keen anticipation as it was to be the first time that the new British Grand Prix V8 engines could be wound up...

The 25th German Grand Prix

A well-deserved win Adenau, August 4th As if to celebrate the 25th German Grand Prix the weather at the Nurburgring in the Eifel mountains almost behaved itself for the duration of the meeting, which covered practice on Friday and Saturday and the race on Sunday. On such a long circuit with a change in height between the start area and Breidscheid of many hundreds of feet, and hills and valleys...

Cheshire cheers

HSCC Oulton Park, August 26: because it’s worth it… Journey time from Spa to the EuroTunnel? About three hours. Journey time from EuroTunnel slip road to passport control? About two. I have known it quieter… The dash from southern Belgium to north-west England has become almost ritual: as long racing weekends go, four days at the Belgian Grand Prix and one at the Oulton Park Gold Cup provide a...

Grand Prix of United States

B.R.M. first and second with the old cars. Watkins Glen, Sunday, October 6th. The 1963 United States Grand Prix at Watkins Glen was freed this year from all World Championships considerations in so far that Clark and Lotus had clinched this year's Championship at Monza. This race counted for itself only, and all outside considerations could be put aside. The entry was the best yet as all teams...
